IOL reports that the actor’s late son Xoli Ndoda, who was a musician at the time passed away in April 2011 in a car accident.   

A car accident claimed the life of Mxolisi, who was 28 at the time. He was a passenger with the driver and two other friends when their car lost control near the Xavier Street off-ramp on the M1 highway in Joburg.  

Speaking to The Star, a grieving Maake KaNcube said at the time he was heartbroken to lose a son at such an early age.  

“He was my firstborn from my childhood sweetheart in Atteridgeville, where I grew up. Perhaps he was overshadowed by the fact that I am an actor, but his friends tell me he could easily imitate me and other people. I think he could have easily made it in the hurly-burly world of acting.”
