SOME five years have passed since the death of Sifiso Ncwane, a faith-based musician, has passed away, but the wounds of his death have not healed the heart of his daughter, Sinqobile Mzelemu. Sinqobile (23) from Mahwaqa village, Mthwalume even vented her grief on a song in honor of her father entitled Hamba Kahle. Sinqobile was actually the child Sifiso gave out of wedlock to Neli Mzelemu and was 16 when his father passed away in December 2016. Sinqobile said she wrote the song before her father was buried and intended to say goodbye to him at the memorial service but it never happened.
Asked when she first realized she had the ability to sing, Sinqobile said she started when she was in primary school.
When there were events at school, people would give me money and ask me to sing. They often asked me to sing my father's songs. At the time I did not know who my father was. The news spread like wildfire. I also said that when I sang it I would be sad and in tears.
"Singing is just something I love because even when we are at home I sometimes tell us to sing. At church we have a choir singing. We once went to SA's Got Talent, I went with my friends." Sinqobile said he wished Sifiso knew how he felt about him.
"I wanted to spend more time with him, and I just got that love from my dad. Or I couldn't get the whole thing but just getting a little bit. No kid doesn't need a dad around him.
"I love her and I miss her so much," concludes Sinqobile who records under Ntokozo FM's Fabulous Ndwalane's Fabulous Music Records. Fabulous said he was asked by Sinqobile to help him release the album. "Then I recorded him under my record label Thoko and I was recording a video last Saturday," Fabulous concludes.
