- The star's mother celebrated her birthday at the weekend
Gospel artist Sbu Noah has penned a touching letter to his "resilient" mom on her birthday.
The Ewe Getsemane hitmaker took to social media to tell his fans how grateful he is to have Thembisile Mthembu as his mother.
The star said his mother's faith "makes my faith look like it's nothing".
"When I tell the story of this woman I call mom; people think I'm talking about a movie I've watched or book I've read! Hers is a story of faith, resilience and hope. Her faith makes my faith look like its nothing... her resilience, she has survived so much yet handles tough situations with so much grace only God can give... hope, my goodness, I've never met someone who, no matter how hard things are but somehow finds a way to believe that things will get better!"
Sbu described Thembisile as an "angel sent to us to taste the heart of God".
"Maybe it’s the undying love she has for her children (she literally will do anything for us), or maybe the love she has for people (remind me to tell you about our fight about me sending money for food and her asking for more in a short space of time, only to get home and there’s no food cause she gave it away to the needy lol), or the love she has for God, but I swear she’s an angel sent to us to taste the heart of God. I’ve done so much for her, yet it never feels enough."
Sbu's peers and fans also wished his mom a happiest of birthdays.
Winnie Mashaba commented:
"Happy birthday to the precious queen of ours."
Mkhululi Bhebhe wrote:
"Happy birthday mom. May goodness and mercy follow you all the days of your life. May God grant you long life so you can live to see His goodness in the land of the living. Amen."
"Happy birthday to her, may the Lord bless her abundantly."
Briefly.co.za reported that actress Simz Ngema wished her father a happy birthday with a stunning tribute.
