Simphiwe Ngema turns 28


Simphiwe Ngema, a wife to the late Dumi Masilela, is celebrating her 28th birthday; not long after her husband was laid to rest.

It is her first birthday celebration without the love of her life and probably the most hard to absorb moment. Strong as she seems to be, Simphiwe wrote on social media, “All I want for my birthday is to hear you say I’m gold because I am burning”.

In the celebville, Simphiwe is known for her role as Thuli on SABC2 soapie ‘Muvhango’.

She was born Klipspruit in Soweto, a historical township outside the City of Gold, Johannesburg.

After she finished her matric, she worked as a receptionist at Chinese Kuo Ting School and enrol at Boston Media House to study Journalism in 2008.

Earlier this year, she married Dumi Masilela in a traditional wedding. As she was ready to start her family, an unfortunate incident occurred in Tembisa where her husband was shot, and died few hours later in hospital.

Happy Birthday Simphiwe.
