Sipho Kaleni’s cause of death has been revealed.
The star was announced dead on Monday, 1 August.
The passing of the presenter was confirmed by the World Gospel Powerhouse and the Crown Gospel Music Awards.
The 46-year-old former radio pulpit presenter and voice of the Crown Gospel Music Awards died on Monday, 1 August, apparently after having been sick for months due to a boil in his armpit.
Awards founder Zanele Mbokazi- Nkambule said the boil became infected and Sipho got seriously ill.
She said,” It started as a small boil but they say if you don’t treat it properly, the poison gets into your bloodstream, that’s what happened to him”.
“It hit his organs and they tried to flush it with special antibiotics, but it was a complicated issue. He dies in hospital”
His memorial service will be held at AFM KwaThema, Ekurhulenu on Friday 5 August, and the funeral will be in Springs on Sunday.
