Mourners at the funeral of singer and actor‚ Siyasanga Kobese‚ gathered in Queenstown to pay their final respects.

Siyasanga's body was carried in by family members and friends‚ as mourners wiped away tears and sang praise songs.

A red carpet was laid out and Siyasanga's casket was white with white flowers.

Members of gospel choir‚ Joyous Celebration‚ took to the stage to sing for Siya‚ who was part of the group for several years.

A family representative told the crowd that Siya's life represented the church. He said she was a bread winner and a good person.
