Mobi Dixon who has been a mentor to Siwundla said he was devastated at her passing.
“I’m distraught. I will remember Nichume as a bright light at Top Chap Media where we signed her. She was not only my first artist, but we had grown so close in the past three years that she became my little sister. She truly is gone too soon. May her soul rest in peace.”
The two had recently released a second song called Thobela which Siwundla had written with her brother Qamani.
In an interview with SowetanLive’s sister publication the Daily Dispatch earlier this year, Siwundla, an accomplished musician and qualified ophthalmologist, had seemed excited about where the future would be taking her career.

“This year promises to be a really great year for me. My label Top Chap Media has a lot of really cool upcoming events where I look forward to collaborating with some amazing artists. There is definitely more fire coming from Nichume. This is only the beginning,” she had said.
Some Twitter users seem to believe a tweet from April may have weighed too heavily on the late star’s mind.
After finding out that Siwundla had passed, Twitter users immediately began the hashtag #RIPnichume before searching for any other mentions of her name.
Pregnant or not. Denise is a cyber bully. It’s weird how someone with a mouse face has the nerve to criticize an amazing artist like Nichume. She must be able to take it if she can dish it.

An unidentified fan then highlighted recalling an instance in which Zimba offered up a critique about Nichume’s cover art for a single she released and called Zimba’s critique bullying.
In the tweet, which was posted in April, Zimba asked: “No disrespect to the artist BUT … For a DEBUT single, do you think that this is of great standard… who approved this art work? …”
