Speaking at his funeral service in Soweto Grace Bible Church, Mpho recounted how the late kwaito star woke up and said: "'Happy birthday, baby'. He further said that he will give me a birthday gift that he won’t buy. 'My gift will be to fight this disease for you.'” Mpho further said that she doesn’t know how she’ll celebrate her birthday the following year. “Maybe I will cry, maybe I’ll be sad. I don’t know.” But one thing she knows is that her husband is at peace. “I know that he’s at peace. I will not be raising my kids alone but with the help of everyone." When further addressing the crowd Mpho said: "To the people that have been asking if Mandoza had money at the time of his passing. “I will only say that if he had money we will not bury him with it. He will leave it here.” In closing Mpho introduced a performance by Pascal, the first artist signed by Nkalakatha records, a company she co-owns with her late husband.
