A recent report by Sunday Sun alleged that the star's widow Ayanda Ncwane had been taken to court by his children born out of wedlock in an attempt to get their share of their award-winning father's estate.

Now, it seems there is more to the story surrounding the award-winning artist's will.

The publication alleges that now Ayanda is at the centre of a legal battle surrounding Sfiso's "fraudulent" will.

Speaking to the SunTeam, Sfiso's children Sduduzo Dlamini and Snqobile Mzelemu's legal representation Bongiwe Nene said that a case is being prepared that could see Ayanda headed to court for signing her husband's will.

Bongiwe told the publication that Ayanda, who is the sole beneficiary of the will, signed Sfiso's will and that "on its own is suspicious and raises a lot of questions."

"It's also unlikely that Ayanda's lawyer, Nhlanhla Mnculwane, never saw this. I say this because he's been dealing with Sfiso's file for years, so he should have picked up this discrepancy.

"As a lawyer, he should have satisfied himself that Sfiso's will met at all requirements. At this point, we're confident we have a good case," Bongiwe told the publication.

In a twist of events, Ayanda's legal representative is unaware of his client signing the will as he never checked if it was on the will.

Nhlanhla says that Ayanda had asked for help with the distribution of her late husband's estate.

"At that time, the will was already drawn up and I never scrutinised the signatures. I also know Sfiso's lawyer, Dr Mkhuseli Vimba prepared Sfiso's will."

He also told the publication that Sfiso never prepared his own will as in 2018 when Vimba removed himself as executor of the will, Ayanda and himself fetched the will from Vimba's house.

However, Vimba says that he "never prepared Sfiso's will and wasn't there when it was prepared and signed."

"When Sfiso approached me, he already had it in his hands. I also remember that on that particular day, he was accompanied by a group of people but I don't remember their names," he told the SunTeam.

He also said he doesn't know how it was drawn up and cannot say if Ayanda signed it or not is more than willing to testify in court.

Ayanda has been mum on the subject and has also been quiet on social media and only returned to wish her eldest son Ngcweti Ncwane a happy birthday.
