When Dumi was alive, he told Simphiwe a hundred times a day that he loved her. He would say ngikuthanda ngempela,” said Simphiwe Ngema, speaking about her late husband, Dumi Masilela. It got to the point where I thought it was my name,” she said.
She said his death taught her to love herself as much as he loved her. “It made me fearless. It made me go for my dreams. Her new single, Ngikuthanda Ngempela, is dedicated to Dumi. I’m letting go of Dumi, but it doesn’t mean I’m looking for a man,” she said.
“I don’t know if I’m ready for love today or if I’ll be ready tomorrow. I don’t know if I’ll find a man tomorrow or in two years’ time. It’s up to my Creator. She told the SunTeam at the launch of the single in Braamfontein, Joburg on Sunday that the song was the last project she would release to honour him.
She said she was afraid people would forget Dumi and that’s why she did everything she could to keep his memory alive. The actress, who currently stars on Isidingo, said losing Dumi two months after their wedding was worse than her worst nightmare.
My worst nightmare was that he would one day leave me when we’re old, but losing him two months after the wedding was unthinkable. It’s about accepting that he is really gone and that he is not coming back,” she said. Dumi and a friend were driving a VW Golf GTI 7 near Tembisa when he was shot in an attempted hijacking on 3 August 2017.
