It has been confirmed that gospel singer Sfiso Ncwane is dead, according to Drum.
Details around his death are unclear at this stage, but TshisaLIVE believes he died in a Johannesburg hospital on Monday morning.
His swansong was at Thobela FM Praise and Worship Festival at Burgersfort in Limpopo on Saturday.
Sfiso did announce to the crowd that he was not feeling well that evening but out of respect for his fans he had resolved to honour the booking.
Earlier before the performance, this reporter (Mpho Tshikhudo) and a photographer popped past his tour bus for a small talk. Despite his sickness, Sfiso was his usual chirpy self and was willing to pose for pictures.
DRUM got the word of his death half an hour ago and details around his passing are sketchy at the moment. His sister Gugu confirmed the sad news although she could not go into details as the family is still coming to terms with his passing.
“It happened this morning and we don’t have the details yet,” said Gugu who was sobbing.
Move! magazine is reporting that the singer was coughing up blood last night.
The singer made headlines last year after he bought his pastor a R1.9 Mercedes.
The Kulungile Baba hitmaker said that Pastor Anosike “saved his life through prayer” and he felt he had to repay him.
It was later reported that he was struggling to make the payments.
Ncwane’s management team have been unavailable for comment. His booking agent and cousin told TshisaLIVE that they could not comment.
A woman by the name of Mmatona Ntuane who apparently works at the KZN Department of Health broke the news on Twitter earlier today.
