SIHHOYE – If you want to be successful in life, you better learn the art of giving.

These were the words Sipho ‘Big Fish’ Makhabane shared last Saturday afternoon, when he spent over E20 000 on food parcels to distribute to the elders of Sihhoye community.

Sihhoye is an area situated about 15 kilometres away from a little town known as Madlangempisi.
Makhabane was joined by some of his close friends   as he handed out food parcels to the 40 elders of the area. 

These included  South African businessman Johannes Sibiya, former Minister Lutfo Dlamini, and his brother Bhutana, SBIS radio personalities, gospel artists Nduduzo Matse and Frans Dlamini and businessman Tum Du-Pont accompanied Makhabane to the area to hand out the food parcels. 

Makhabane said he had been invited by a friend Bongani Matsebula who stays the area.  He had requested that during the festive season the gospel star should visit his community.

Since it was a busy entertainment weekend full of crossover shows Makhabane could not make it in December and decided to make up for that.  “Since I annually give a little something to those in need I decided to kill two birds with one stone.

Visit the community while also giving back to the elderly who are always close to my heart,” said the gospel legend.
He spent E15 000 to purchase food parcels which were given to elders who happen to be Matsebula’s neighbours.  At least 40 elderly people benefitted as they went home with groceries worth E400 each.

Makhabane felt it would be wrong for him to go to Matsebula’s homestead and not give out anything to the elders.
Makhabane said they have been friends with Matsebula for some time.“I told Matsebula to check if there were any elderly people who happened to be his neighbours. After confirming that, I told him that he should make sure he invites them as I have a surprise for them. I did not tell him what I would be bringing,” he said.

He said giving was one of his hobbies and it was one of the reasons why he thought he should give them something to eat.
