Mobi Dixon and Nichume Siwundla
Nichume death came as a shock to the entire nation. Ntuli, who was her mentor and a fellow musician, deeply expressed how devastated he was by the news of her demise in the statement released by Top Chap Media. Nichume had featured in Ntuli’s hit single Buthiza, and in his statement, the two had been so close that he treated her like a sister. Different people on social media had mixed feelings about the incident, and some blamed it on Mobi. They accused him of allegedly mistreating Nichume months before her death, which he strongly denied. In a video post, he said,
It’s really unfortunate how everything has played out to me being vilified and being blamed for certain things in this whole situation. I am aware of all these allegations against me, and I emphatically deny all allegations that have been made against me. I’m not going to dwell on this matter because it is being dealt with internally with the family and the company and myself as an individual. More information, my story, and my truth will come soon when the time is right. Right now, the main thing is for me to get well and grieve. I have not been grieving well. I have in and out of hospital. Despite everything, for me, I have to protect the legacy and the memory of Nichume,
Ntuli decided to take a break from social media and canceled all his performances and studio sessions; however, he gave his apologies. A month after the break, he posted on his Instagram account that he was back at work.
