Minister of Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa says Ncwane’s contribution to the country will continue to be cherished
“Sfiso Ncwane grew from humble beginnings into an artist of great stature and great power. He was truly a giant in gospel music even at a tender age,” Mthethwa said on Monday.
“He had an abundance of creative spirit. He sang isicathamiya and gospel songs even as a child. He earned the respect of his community by playing at weddings, in churches, at funerals and community events. It was clear from the start that his would be a life of dedication to his art, and devotion through spreading the word of God.”
Mthethwa added that Ncwane was a good influence on young people.
“In many different ways he was inspirational and influential, giving hope and courage to new generations and changing people’s lives. Our heartfelt condolences go to his wife, Ayanda, his children, his entire family and his fans.”
