Simphiwe Dana and the late music icon Hugh Masekela used to have a good relationship and even planned on working together on an album. She reminisced about the time she spent with Hugh and shared it with her fans on social media. Simphiwe remembered how Hugh paid for her to get Tai Chi lessons because her ‘energy was all over the place’.

She also remembered that Hugh wanted to use her as a backup singer, which she didn’t feel would work out. “He paid for me to get 10 Tai Chi lessons. Because he felt my energy was too all over the place. And that my energy would be bad for our album. Then he passed just as we were about ready to work. “He was so unhappy with me when I refused to go on a global tour with him as his backup singer. But I was only saving him from embarrassment. I’m a terrible backup singer.

According to an earlier report by News24, Hugh was the first person to visit Simphiwe after a terrible accident she had in 2005 when she was 8 months pregnant. “He came to see me at my home all those years ago. He was one of the first people to come to my house to visit and check up on that.” The music icon passed away on 23 January 2018 and left a hole in the hearts of many South Africans.
