CityPress - - News -

Siyabonga wanted to be­come a farmer. He loved live­stock and feed­ing his doves. Ev­ery day when re­turn­ing from school – be­fore greet­ing the fam­ily – he would sing his favourite gospel song, Mphe­fu­mulo Wami, by the late gospel star Lundi. He loved im­i­tat­ing Lundi and knew all his songs. His mother Florence re­calls: “No mat­ter how stressed I was, ev­ery time he sang, he gave me hope. “There was some­thing about his unique voice. To this day, I can still hear him singing the song. I now know Mphe­fu­mulo Wami be­cause of him,” Florence says.
