Actress Simphiwe Ngema has dropped her late husband Dumisani Masilela’s last recorded single.

Dumi was fatally shot in August 2017 during a hijacking in Tembisa, in Johannesburg.

Ngema, who has always been open about the difficulties of coming to terms with becoming a widow at 27 years old, shared in a post that she would be dropping one of Dumi’s last recorded songs "Uphushiwe" on the Fresh Breakfast show on Metro FM on Tuesday.

"UPhushiwe" is the same love song that Masilela serenaded Ngema with during their traditional wedding ceremony. 

Speaking on the radio show Ngema said: "It feels so different that he's not here with us enjoying this moment because we know if he was here, he would screaming and whatever, you know... and climbing the walls. Because he was just that energy. He was amazing!"

Recalling one of her favourite memories of Dumi, Ngema laughed as she shared a story about how he was late on their wedding day. 

"UPhushiwe" will drop on all digital platforms next week.
