Family Rift Continues: Sfiso Ncwane’s Mother Disowns Daughter-in-law Ayanda
In the complex and tumultuous tale of Sfiso Ncwane’s legacy, the latest chapter unfolds with a disheartening revelation as the rift between the gospel artist’s widow, Ayanda Ncwane, and his mother, Fikile Ncwane, continues to deepen. The once-fraught relationship, marked by tension and public conflicts, has now reached a point where Fikile Ncwane has decided to formally disown Ayanda.
Sfiso Ncwane, a renowned gospel musician, passed away seven years ago, and his family’s relations with his widow have been marred by volatility, often making headlines. The latest incident underscores the strained relationship between the mother-in-law and her daughter-in-law.
In an exclusive interview with Sunday World, Fikile Ncwane declared her decision to disown Ayanda. The breaking point, she asserts, was Ayanda’s involvement with the police, accusing Fikile of mistreatment and assault. This escalation led to Ayanda seeking a protection order against her mother-in-law, a move that Fikile interpreted as a rejection.
“As far as I’m concerned, I don’t have a daughter-in-law,” Fikile expressed. “I disowned Ayanda a long time ago, but now I am making it official. I took that decision when she brought the police into my home, accusing me of ill-treating and attacking her.”

The strained relationship dates back to 2015 when Fikile accused Sfiso in the media of not taking care of her. Sifiso and Ayanda responded by accusing Fikile of witchcraft. The verbal conflict escalated, but eventually, Sifiso and his mother reconciled.
Nonetheless, Ayanda had already distanced herself from the Ncwane family. When Sfiso passed away in Johannesburg in December 2016, his family was denied access to his body. They were forced to leave the house and find their own way back to KwaZulu-Natal.
Fikile Ncwane expressed her frustrations with not finding closure even seven years after her son’s death. She also lamented not having seen her grandchildren for an extended period, as her attempts to reach out to Ayanda proved futile. Fikile has now resigned herself to letting “God deal with her.”
In a statement that suggests suspicions about the circumstances of her son’s death, Fikile dropped a bombshell, saying, “I just pray that one day she tells the world what really happened to my son.”
As this family drama continues to unfold, it serves as a sobering reminder of the complexities and challenges that can arise within family dynamics, even in the wake of a loved one’s passing.
