Caiphus Semenya Shares Heartwarming Tribute To The Late Queeneth Ndaba. Legendary Jazz star Caiphus Semenya is one of many people who were paying tribute to Queeneth Ndaba a fellow jazz muso who passed away yesterday at the OR Tambo Memorial Hospital in Boksburg.
Queeneth was one of the biggest stars in the jazz scene back in the 50’s and 60’s alongside other stars such as Miriam Makeba, The Manhattan Brothers, Hugh Masekela, Jonas Gwangwa, Caiphus Semenya, Dolly Rathebe, The Skylark and Abigail Kubeka.
Caiphus expressed how he had known Queeneth and shared his deep condolences.
“I’ve known her since she was a teenager and she was incredible. She would captivate an audience and really just engulf you in her music. The one thing I remember more than anything else was how dedicated she was to her craft. She was very friendly but let people know their place. This is a big loss to the industry.”
