Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Letoya Makhene's relationship grabbed headlines earlier this month when it was revealed she's found love in the arms of another woman. The actress, singer and sangoma is dating businesswoman Lebo Keswa. Letoya told Sunday World:

“My biggest fear was telling my dad and my children that mommy is in love with a woman. I was afraid of hurting them."

However, the star had nothing to worry about as her dad, veteran singer Blondie Makhene, has given his blessing. Letoya took to Instagram to thank her father for his understanding. She posted a picture of her, Blondie and Lebo in a three-way hug.

The star wrote:

“You know how much I've dealt with in my journey through life, daddy. How many times I've been told to repent and forsake my ancestors — for hell surely awaits me.
"Now — as we predicted — the same people are telling me once again that hell awaits me because I've finally found everything that I've ever prayed for in a lifelong partner. Thank you daddy for the blessing you gave us. Yours and God's is the only blessing that matters."
