What Sfiso Ncwane hated with passion while he was still alive has happened to his funeral DVD.

Sfiso never wanted his music to be pirated. If was to be alive, this wouldn’t have happened but unfortunately piracy has followed him beyond the grave.

His funeral service, which was broadcast by TV and radio stations, has been pirated on DVD.

 The DVDs are being sold on the streets of Durban for between R10 and R20, with some copies selling for as little as R5.

When asked about the illegal DVDs, one seller lashed out at the SunTeam.

“I sell these to provide for my family. What I sell is none of your business!” he said.

A customer said she saw Sfiso’s funeral on TV.

“When I heard the service was available on DVD, I did not hesitate to buy it.

“I am still trying to come to terms with his death. The DVD is pirated, but it will help me to heal.”

At KwaMnyandu Mall in Umlazi, two hawkers were selling the DVD.

The hawkers also lashed out at the SunTeam.

“Do you care what my children will eat if I don’t sell this? Please go before I do something I will regret,” said one hawker.
