Actor Siyabonga Shibe has abandoned and blacklisted his family. The Sibongile & The Dlaminis star is said to have told his mother and his brothers that he wants nothing to do with them. The problem alleged started when a child came into his life and claimed that she is his long lost daughter. This is the same person who claimed Sfiso Ncwane was her father after he passed away.
His brother told ZiMoja that Siyabonga no longer buys food for their mother. “We don’t understand how Siyabonga got to this point. Our brother has stopped buying grocery for our mother. He told our mother he doesn’t want her from a bar of soap. We were trying to warn him about the alleged daughter but he decided to cut us off,” said Nathi, adding that Siyabonga has even sold his two cars and a house in Ridgeway, in the south of Johannesburg, to prove his love to his newly found daughter
“We don’t know that daughter. She first claimed that she was Sifiso Ncwane’s child and now she is claiming that she is Siya’s daughter. We don’t know her and we don’t want to be part of her life since she is taking away our brother. Siyabonga insulted our mom and told her that he doesn’t want her at his funeral in case he dies.
Siyabonga is no longer visiting at home and has since blocked us on all his numbers. He has even changed his phone to “tototo” (a non-smart phone) while his newly found daughter has an iPhone 14,” he said. According to a source, his colleagues are concerned because he is constantly asking for R10 for cigarettes. Attempts to get comment from Siyabonga proved unsuccessful.
