We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Siphiwo. It has come as such a shock to all here at Belgravia Gallery, where he kindly performed at our exhibition of Nelson Mandela's artworks. He was an extremely talented singer & performer whose voice was simply 'amazing'. We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to his family, friends and all those he worked with & alongside. Siphiwo, rest in peace. X
The love that was sent through Siphiwo's voice will always be remembered. His kindness, humbleness, thoughtfulness will always linger in my heart. He was the best friend one who ever wish to have. He was a blessing that I will always cherish and be grateful to have received. He was a gentleman that is well groomed with love and hope. He was a good role model to the youth and to his own children. He will be missed and kept in my heart.
I express our sympathy to the family of great friend and opera singer Siphiwo and I hope God can keep him forever in glory of angels and gives to all the need courage at this sadness times.

I have heard the dreadful news, and I wish all my greatest condolences to Siphiwo's family and friends. I will never forget his beautiful voice.
I'm hurting to hear that Buti Siphiwo has passed on. You know, he truly was a humble man just like his dad who contributed so much in our community. These men truly are an inspiration for us young aspiring people from humble backgrounds. They truly are talented. Oh my, what a man, may your spirit rest in peace...

He is now in Heaven, but we feel sorry on earth for losing the great man, the beautiful voice. Itīs sad, so young, so hard to understand, he sings now to the angels of God in Heaven. In Mexico nobody got to know him nor his career, but few. I did and so I was blessed. Goodbye Siphiwo.
