FAMILY members of late gospel star Sfiso Ncwane are worried that a cloud of bad luck is about to come down on them.
This is because they have not ended their mourning period as they don’t have money for an unveiling ceremony.
S’fiso’s sister Gugu and mum Fikile told Daily Sun that a traditional cleansing ceremony should have been held in December to mark one year since the gospel singer died.
However, they couldn’t afford a goat or cow.
“This ceremony is compulsory so my brother’s soul can rest in peace and become a good ancestor,”
She said S’fiso sometimes appeared in their dreams, but she wasn’t willing to say what had happened in the dreams.
She said they couldn’t discuss the issue with S’fiso’s wife Ayanda as she wasn’t speaking to them.
“If we get the money, we will do the ceremony, whether she comes or not,” said Gugu.
Fikile pleaded with anyone who can help pay for the ceremony to come forward.
When the SunTeam contacted Ayanda, she responded by email and said no one had contacted her about the ceremony.
“I’m shocked. I’ve never heard that a married man’s unveiling could be held outside his home. Nobody will do my husband’s unveiling but myself as his wife,” she said.
Cultural expert Professor Jabulani Maphalala said the family would experience problems if the unveiling was not performed soon.
The incident is hard to believe especially after it was reported back in September 2015 that the Gospel singer, Sfiso Ncwane shocked many when he bought a R1.9 million car as a gift for a pastor who he says saved his live after suffering a heart attack.
The Kulungile Baba hitmaker told the Daily Sun three years ago that while he laid in bed with death looking over his shoulder after the heart attack at his house in Durban, "Reverend Francis raced over to my home and prayed for me," the late gospel star said.
Pastor Anosike is the leader of the Rock Of Victory Ministries International church in Newtown, Johannesburg.
“I don’t even own such a car myself, but I have no problem with it,” he told the newspaper. “It is not important how much I give because it is worth nothing when compared to what God has done for me,” Sfiso said then.
Before he suddenly died, The Drum magazine reported that Sfiso was battling to pay off the R2 million loan he took out to buy the extravagant present, a Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG for Pastor Francis of the Rock Of Victory Ministries International church in Newtown, Johannesburg.
According to Drum’s sources, the singer couldn't afford to pay the monthly instalment of between R23,000 and R26,000.
