Simphiwe Dana mom’s death -Popular actress and singer Simphiwe Dana has revealed that her mother has died.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday in a moving tribute, the award-winning musician wrote: “Our wonderful mother, MamJoli, left us earlier today.

“We are wounded, but grateful for the grace with which she raised us and all her other adopted children. Please hold us in prayer.”

The “Uzokhala” hitmaker shared some memorable moments she’d had with her mother, a retired health professional.

The star said she was proud that she had honoured her mother while she was still alive.

Messages of condolence have been pouring in on social media as fans and industry friends express their support to Dana and her family.

“Oh sis 💔 I am so sorry, condolences to you and your whole family 🕯,” wrote singer Brenda Mtambo.

“My love may her soul Rest In Peace … may you be comforted by the Peace of God that surpasses all man’s understanding,” commented fashion powerhouse David Tlale.

“My sincerest condolences Queen ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,” said musician Anto Neosoul.

“💔💔💔💔💔💔Condolences to you and the entire family. Everyone knows how much all of you loved your Mom, how scared you were when she got sick. We rejoiced when she recovered.

“This loss is on top of a mountain of loss. I pray for you to get through this time. You are loved,” tweeted poet Lebogang Mashile.

In June 2020, Dana revealed that her mother had contracted coronavirus.

“My mom has been diagnosed with the coronavirus. She is a retired nurse who went back to work for an old-age home because nursing to her is a calling,” tweeted Dana at the time.

She later assured her fans that her mom was recovering at home.

“She has diabetes. Still, I have faith she will pull through,” added Dana.

Dana lost her father, who was a preacher, just over six month ago. It was her father who exposed the young Dana to choral and gospel music before she found her voice as an Afrosoul singer.
