Zanele Mbokazi-Nkambule told Celebs Now that Sipho Kaleni was ill after a boil developed under his armpit.

“It began as a tiny boil, but they say that if you don’t treat it properly, the toxin enters your system, which is what happened to him.”

They attempted to drain it out with specific antibiotics, but it was a tricky situation. He died in the hospital,” Mbokazi-Nkambule revealed.

Isabella Nxumalo, a close friend of the late musician Sipho Kaleni, has appealed to the public for donations to pay his outstanding medical bills. According to the Back a Buddy page created by Nxumalo, the Kaleni family has hospital costs in excess of R2.5 million.
