  1. They should start investigation from that his friend. RIP to the dead

  2. That his friend should be answering questions by now

  3. It's so painful. I loved his character in Rythm City. I thought he'd get married to Reneilwe someday.Their young love was just so sweet to watch. Reminded me of the days when I had huge crush.
    And he just got married a few months back to that Ngema girl former actress in Muvhango. May Dumi's soul rest in peace.

  4. OMG RIP man. When Blackberry was saying it, i thought it was the usual film they were doing. South Africa is just worst than Nigeria.

    Na wa oo no place is safe again. God Almighty still keep your children safe Amen

  5. The way crime robs people of their loved ones. Haba, this is very heavy he just got married, i really hate this SA the crime level is just so high.. They kill people for something as little as 200 naira. There was a time i landed at the airport and our host came to pick us up with a very exotic car, we were followed o. God saved us that he noticed on time. they saw we came in with about 10 bags so they wanted their own share. I know the guy and this sucks big time.

  6. I've been heart broken since I heard this news, such a young talented boy wasted for nothing. He he sings too, was top 18 in SA idols. I've been a huge rhythm city fan since 2008, I've been sad since yesterday. May he's killers never know peace, they will beg for death but it will elude them. May they suffer till their last day on this earth. I can remember he's first scene on RC, selling pirated redemption records and how miles rescued him, Gush!!! RIP Sfiso, u will be missed greatly.

    1. So so sad. Sfiso!!! RC will miss him. Its heartbreaking.
