While Alive, Sifso Ncwane Was The Breadwinner Of His Family
Sifso Ncwane was the breadwinner of the Ncwane’s family, not just his matrimonial family but also his family by birth. This was one of Ayanda Ncwane’s problems because his family saw her as a gold digger who just wanted to spend their son’s money. While he was alive, the gospel artist ensured his family was comfortable. Although his net worth before his death is not known, Sifso can be said to be wealthy.
Ayanda Ncwane Earns Money From Multiple Sources To Maintain Her Lifestyle
Even before Sifso’s death, his wife, Ayanda Ncwane, was always a hard worker. This is contrary to what many fans think because she publicly spoke about been worried about how she would take care of her after her husband’s demise. Many erroneously thought she was broke, but contrary to that, Ayanda and her sons have maintained their luxurious lifestyle.
A Successful Entrepreneur
Before her husband’s death, Ayanda Ncwane worked as the Chief Executive Officer of Ncwane Communications – Sifso Ncwane’s music company. She stepped up in her husband’s absence and took the company to greater heights. Under her management, the company broke the sales record. In 2014/2015, Ncwane Communications was the best-selling in both gospel and secular genre in South Africa and beyond.
Multiple Awards and Achievements
Her outstanding role as the CEO of Ncwane Communications has earned her four awards at the South African Music Awards. These achievements earned her the President of South Africa Gospel Awards’ position, which she got by appointment in 2020. She also won an international award in London for International Outstanding Music Promoter and Brand Manager.
A Multi-Talented Woman
Ayanda Ncwane may have inherited her husband’s wealth and properties, but she might have been bankrupt at this point if she wasn’t working hard. Her outstanding management and entrepreneurship skills have seen her maintain a good life for herself and her sons, and now, she has become the breadwinner of her family. Late Sifso Ncwane would be very proud of his wife, knowing that she can stay strong for herself and their children even after his death.
Besides working as CEO of her husband’s company, Ayanda Ncwane has also proven to be resourceful by her standards. She joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD), which debuted on Showmax on 29 January 2021. She is also an author and has published a book in honor of her late husband, Sfiso Ncwane. The book titled For The Love of Sfiso Ncwane was written to tell people the kind of legacy her late husband had. According to her, she would have released an album to honor him, but since she can’t sing, she decided to write a book. The book was published in October 2018.
Ayanda Ncwane Was Taken to Court By Her Step-Children Over Sifso Ncwane’s Properties
Before Sifso Ncwane died, he had many children outside wedlock. After his death, they sued Ayanda, demanding their share of her late husband’s estate. However, according to Sifso’s will, his entire estate was to go to his wife Ayanda and nothing for his other children whom he had with other women. That will, which was claimed to have been written in October, about two months before his death, had Ayanda Ncwane as a witness.
Controversy and Legal Battles
Being a witness to her late husband’s will should outrightly disqualify her from being a beneficiary of his estate according to the law, and many people believed that Sifso actually had no will, and his wife forged the will to make herself the only beneficiary.
Inheritance and Succession
The outcome of the court case is not known, but from the look of things, Ayanda Ncwane inherited a good part of her late husband’s estate, if not everything. Aside from the house, which she referred to during her interview with Drum, she also inherited the company – Ncwane Communications.
