Simphiwe Ngema believes that her mom, Ethel, is not only her friend but is also her biggest fan and pillar of strength.
The actress and musician has said that their close relationship is "unbreakable".
The gorgeous mother-daughter duo has revealed the key to their strong relationship ahead of Mothers' Day on Sunday.
"The key to our relationship is communication and trust. As a mother, I have always led by example in terms of speaking up about things in my heart, good or bad, no matter how difficult it may be, it always helps. Trust is also very important, from a young age, I allowed my children to make decisions for their lives and I supported those decisions."
Simz, as she is also affectionately known, said her mother's unconditional love has stuck with her from a young age.
"Unconditional love, my mother is a genuine person who has a lot of love to give. She also values forgiveness and that’s something I’ll always appreciate about her."
Simz said both their favourite activities are shopping, getting massages and facials and working out together.
The best relationship advice she's ever received from her mother was that she must never lose herself in a relationship.
Simphiwe said her mom deserves some perfume for this year's Mothers' Day.
"Definitely some perfume, I think she will love Gold Series’ Beverly Hills perfume. It’s classy and elegant just like her."
Ethel further said the biggest lessons she's learned from her daughter is to always find a reason to smile, be happy and to live her dreams.
The loving mom added that one of the biggest challenge she's faced with having a daughter who is in the limelight is false reports in the media.
"As her mother, these break my heart as well as the people who create social media accounts impersonating her."
Briefly.co.za has reported that Simphiwe recently purchased her first home. The actress celebrated with her fans by posting a congratulatory e-mail from one of her facilitators.
