Snqobile Mzelemu has written a tribute song titled, Hamba Kahle, which she hopes will help bring her closure.
The award-winning singer died on 5 December 2016. Snqobile said she wrote the song last year and hoped to release it on her father’s birthday next month, but a lack of funds will make this impossible.
“I’ve always wanted to do something for my father, but I didn’t have the money.
“Unfortunately, my father and I didn’t spend much time together when he was still around.
“I wanted to have a father-daughter relationship with him, but the odds were against us.
“I know that he loved me. I loved him too, but we never got a chance to bond. Now that I am older, I decided to write this song for him to show how much I loved and needed him,” she said.
Snqobile said although her father has been dead for almost six years, she’s still struggling to accept it.
“I need closure. That’s why I wrote this song. I am trying to accept that he is gone
“I am now allowing him to become my guide and angel. I hope he can hear the song wherever he is.
“I was hoping to release this song on his birthday in April, but now I can see that it will be impossible.
“I need money for a single cover, photoshoot, make-up and other things. I’ve spent all my money on recording. I’m appealing to the public to help me release my single,” she told the People’s Paper.
