"We were expecting comments like this sweetie, which is the reason for our initial hesitation.
However, I don’t regret us sharing this song with everyone as it speaks of love and blessings. God knows how much we both mean to each other and this is the best way YOU know how to express it.
I don’t think there’s anyone who doesn’t have anyone they appreciate and love here on Earth and in heaven and that’s what the song speaks of.
I know God put this song in your heart because I felt it the first day I heard it . .
Thank you for this beautiful prayer!
I dedicate this song to our beautiful children."
"Ziphozenkosi means Blessing from God (right)? Why can’t she just sing this song to her family and loved one?"
"I’m not married but I still have a loving family, friends, colleagues and church mates that are (gifts) from God in my life. She needs to heal."
"How many artists have written songs about their loved ones and we went and supported them because we can relate to it?
"You need not worry about such comments. In this world not everyone is for you... Please don't entertain such!"
Briefly.co.za reported Dumi and his wife, who's a doctor, are madly in love and total couple goals.
