South Africa: Tragic Death by Bacterial Meningitis

South African opera singer Siphiwo Ntshebe has died from meningitis.

The 34-year-old, who was chosen by Nelson Mandela to perform at the opening ceremony of the World Cup, was admitted to hospital last week and died on Tuesday in Port Elizabeth.

The singer who was once told by a teacher, "Mozart is not for you. Blacks can't sing Mozart", was supposed to sing the song “Hope”, which is the official anthem of the football/soccer tournament, at the opening ceremony on June 11.  His new track was to be released - along with his new album - at the same time of the World Cup, to coincide with the tournament.

The source of his infection has not been reported. The singer, who studied in Australia and London, will be missed by family, friends and fans.
