Sfiso Ncwane’s daughter begs for help

Daughter of Late Sfiso Ncwane Appeals for Support to Release Tribute Song

Snqobile Mzelemu, the daughter of the late gospel icon Sfiso Ncwane, has expressed her desire to share a tribute song dedicated to her father. The song, titled “Hamba Kahle,” was written last year as a means for Snqobile to find closure after her father’s passing on December 5, 2016.

Snqobile, longing for a deeper connection with her late father, hopes to unveil the song on his upcoming birthday next month. However, financial constraints have become a hurdle in realizing this aspiration.

In an interview with the People’s Paper, Snqobile shared her sentiments: “I know that he loved me. I loved him too, but we never got a chance to bond. Now that I am older, I decided to write this song for him to show how much I loved and needed him.”

Originally planning to release the song before April, Snqobile has exhausted her resources on the recording process. She now seeks support from the public for essential elements such as a single cover, photoshoot, make-up, and other necessities.

Meanwhile, in other news, former Muvhango actress Buhle Samuels recently captured social media attention with images and videos from her traditional wedding. Dressed in Xhosa traditional attire, Buhle received praise and congratulations from netizens.
