Regan Was Fascinated Seeing Sixto's Fandom

Regan is the youngest daughter of singer Sixto. She and her two half-sisters lived with their dad in their old house in Detroit.

She lived a poor life full of struggles with her dad until 1998.

In 1998 her dad Sixto was invited for a tour in South Africa by his fans. SA Limos was waiting outside her house to pick up Sixto and his daughters. 

Regan was fascinated seeing the Limos. She thought it was for some celebrity and people like her should stand far from it. 

But later, she realized it was for her dad. She didn’t expect that and was unaware of her dad’s stardom. 

She imagined only 20-30 people coming to her dad’s concert, but when she got there, she was amazed as there were thousands of people. 

She saw the crowd astonished and going crazy over her dad and his songs. 

Did Sixto Commit Suicide?

Sixto was one the most famous and talented singers. His music career was full of roller coaster rides. 

Despite his unique songs, gaining publicity took him a long time. 

He released some of his albums and made lots of money back in the 70s in South Africa, which got him recognized, but he was unaware of it. 

Along with that, there was news of his death. According to that news, it was said he committed suicide on stage. 

That news claimed that he set himself on fire onstage during a concert. 

The real thing was he came back to his own country because his singing career was not making any money, and he had a hard time earning a livelihood. 

His suicide rumor ended after one of the record producer owners investigated his death with his friend and found him alive, living in his house in Detroit.

Sixto Didn’t Receive Any Royalties

Sixto was a great singer, and many people adored his songs. 

But he didn’t come to prominence until the 90s. 

In the 70s, millions of his songs were sold in South Africa, and people there were really into his music. 

But in America, he was just an unknown person. He had no idea about his songs making huge money or his popularity in South Africa.

He didn’t receive any royalties. He was living a hard life in his house in Detroit with his family. 

He was working as a laborer, and his neighbor thought of him as some weirdo with a guitar. 

Some people even thought he was a homeless man.
