Ace vocalist Nichume Siwundla has been reportedly passed on as the singer reportedly took her own life by jumping off a building in Johannesburg on Thursday, according to the Daily Sun rerports
Her brother Qamani Siwundla told The Sowetan: “We, as a family are in absolute shock as to what has happened. Learning that your sister has succumbed to emotions and taken her own life can never rest well. We obviously are left with a lot of questions but also know that she had one of the strongest characters in the family and whatever she was feeling at that moment triggered immense hopelessness.”
The vocalist features in Mobi Dixon’s popular hit song Bhutiza.
Mobi Dixon also took to social media and said he wished it wasn’t true.
I thought I’d wake up and it’s a dream 😭
