Friends of late Dumi Masilela were planning on having a massive party to celebrate his 30th birthday but instead spent Wednesday reflecting on his memory, still heartbroken by his death nearly ten months ago.

Speaking to True Love magazine five months after Dumi’s death, his widow Simz said she made a pact with her husband that when they were old, Dumi would die first and give Simz just two days to prepare his funeral. He would then come “fetch” her.

“I took a bath, got dressed and went into the restroom. I sat there for a good hour waiting for him to fetch me. People kept knocking at the door but I sat there crying. In my mind, getting up meant I was accepting Dumi’s death and betraying him, and so I stayed sitting, asking for Dumi to come fetch me, but he didn’t come.”


She said two months after his death, Dumi came to her in a dream and led her to a garden where he said he would stay with her forever.
