Simz Ngema is easily one of the bravest young celebs in Mzansi. Despite losing her soulmate, she kept her head high and stood tall. She recently opened up about her healing process and how she coped with her loss.
Losing a loved one is never easy, and the healing journey that follows is unique for every person.
For Simz Ngema, part of her healing process was finding a way to honour her late husband, Dumi Masilela.
By launching his album, Eternal Crush, she keeps his memory alive and honours him as well.
ZAlebs had an exclusive interview with Simz, and she opened up about how she felt about launching the album, as well as many other aspects of her life.
Launching Eternal Crush was an emotional roller-coaster, but it was something I knew I would do eventually. Dumi was working on his music a few days before he passed. It was what we were talking about every day, it was what he was working on.
The young woman admitted she didn't think she was strong enough to listen to his music, let alone work to have his album released.
Immediately after Dumi’s death, I thought I was going to die. I didn’t have the strength to wake up, let alone listen to his music. It has taken a lot to get to this point and I now take this as a healing process.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Simz said she had many questions after Dumi passed away and many of them were directed at God.
Like 'did you really think I’m strong enough for this? Did you and Dumi really think I could handle this?' But you grow and understand that as humans we have our own purpose, then there’s God’s purpose.
She admitted too that she blamed herself for a period after his death.
You do think of those things and start blaming yourself but you have to get to a point where you can say, there’s absolutely nothing I could’ve done about this situation, everything was meant to happen the way it happened.
By staying strong, Simz is an inspiration to all the people out there going through their own pain and loss, but she's still figuring it out herself.
The pain doesn’t get better, you get stronger, you carry the pain better. There are going to be days when you don’t want to wake up, it’s going to get harder before it gets better. It gets really hard but let yourself feel what you feel. Cry, get angry, scream, feel your pain.
