Simphiwe Ngema: It’s the simple things that matter

Simz Ngema and Dumi

It’s been three months since actress Simphiwe Ngema lost her husband Dumi Masilela. The actress took to Instagram to reflect how she feels.

“It’s been 3months since I lost my husband. 3months of sleepless nights, trauma, anxiety attacks, crying uncontrollably, anger, excruciating pain, loneliness, denial, bargaining and a lot of unanswered questions that leave me paralysed with fear. Some days feel like I haven’t moved or feel like it’s not getting better.”

Simphiwe Ngema

Simz added all she can do is trust God.

“I’ve just learnt to take it one breath at a time. I don’t know what tomorrow holds, I still don’t know what God’s plan is and the thought of a future without “our future” still makes me anxious, all I can do is trust God. He is all I know. I am holding onto him with broken hands but still holding on nonetheless. I miss you terribly! My boongy @dmasilela 💔😭 #eternalcrush”

Simz captioned a photo on Instagram “It’s the simple things that matter. This pic still puts a smile on my face. You just popped out of nowhere and made me laugh.”

In another photo, Simphiwe wrote “Happiness is something you have to be vigilant of, especially when in grief, You cry everyday and depression knocks at your door every second of the day.”

“Count your joyous moments. They may not last long because they are quickly followed by guilt but count them anyway because that moment could be your last.” – she added.

Actress Buhle Samuels left shocked after man R25k for sex

Buhle Samuels Muvhango actress

Muvhango actress Buhle Samuels says she is disgusted by a man who sent her an email requesting to meet up with her for “sexual desires”.

The 44-year-old man, who called himself Paul, said he was willing to pay R25 000 for one night of pleasure.

“Yes I am an old man. I am not so attractive. I will go straight to the point. I want to meet up with you for sexual desires. I’m offering you R25k for a night. If you are up for it, please let me know. Thank you,” he apparently wrote in the email.

Taking to Instagram the actress expressed her disgust over the request and lambasted the man.

“Just because you have money doesn’t mean sh**t. I definitely don’t want to be bought. Because I am not for sale! How annoying are pigs like that guy?” she wrote.

Buhle said it was wrong for men to feel it is normal to send women requests, offering to buy them.

“Obviously people have sent me some pretty inappropriate things before. It was just that on that day I was really disturbed by it, I was over men that find it normal to make such requests. It can’t be normal that a person saw nothing wrong with offering to ‘buy’ a person like that, it’s terrible.”

Buhle Samuels said that she hopes she got her message across loud and clear.

The star-studded American cast is supported by well-known South African actors Nokuthula Ledwaba, Mbulelo Grootboom and Nandi Nyembe. SAFTA nominee Ledwaba burst onto the scene as wild child Lu in Backstage, before playing diva-in-the-making Tshidi Khuse on Rhythm City and then starring as Dumile in Umlilo.
