They say the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, right? It seems the late Sfiso Ncwane’s daughter is following in his footsteps and we are here for it.
It’s been six years now since the passing of legendary award winning gospel star and his daughter Snqobile Mzelemu, is still struggling to accept that he is no more. Snqobile is one of Sfiso’s children born out of wedlock.
According to Daily Sun, Snqobile has penned a tribute song titled Hamba Kahle in honor of his father. It appears Snqobile is a talented child and we wouldn’t be surprised if she grew up to be a super star in her own right.
Speaking to the publication, she said she hoped the tribute song would bring closure to her. Snqobile said she started working on this song last year and she hopes to drop it next month on what would have been Sfiso’s birthday.
Financial constraints however makes it impossible for her to release the song next month. “I’ve always wanted to do something for my father, but I didn’t have the money. Unfortunately, my father and I didn’t spend much time together when he was still around. I wanted to have a father-daughter relationship with him, but the odds were against us,” she said.
She said even though she didn’t get the opportunity to bond with her late father, she knows how much she loved her. “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,” she said.
She also shared her struggle with accepting the loss of her father and pleaded with the public for support so she can release the track.
“I am now allowing him to become my guide and angel. I hope he can hear the song wherever he is. I was hoping to release this song on his birthday in April, but now I can see that it will be impossible.
“I need money for a single cover, photoshoot, make-up and other things. I’ve spent all my money on recording. I’m appealing to the public to help me release my single,” she told the publication.
