Losing a mother is never easy and it’s a wound that takes time to heal. Thandiswa Mawazi recently took to social media to share that she was still struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother on the anniversary of her passing.
“My mother died on this day in 1993. We were babies. We are still suffering the loss. Queen Belede the great!!!!”
Her post triggered a lot of people who were also dealing with some kind of loss. Others offered words of comfort to the Mzansi singer.
“Me too, I lost my mother the same year but we're still stronger... Uqibe qawe.”
“May her revolutionary pan African spirit continue to permeate on you ALL bantwana Baka-Mfrika Belede.”

Briefly News previously reported that songstress Thandiswa Mazwai is in the process of making a documentary about her life and has asked fans what they'd like to see in it.
Fans are interested in everything, from her upbringing to what it was like working and touring with greats such as Hugh Masekela.
Of course, fans are also interested in the star's love life.
"Is this a Q&A sisi, because I have a burning question for you? I have always had a crush on you and I am wondering if it is possible to get a date nyana with you after this corona thingy?"
Thandiswa responded, "I stopped dating men about 14 years ago. Men are nice and everything, but women are so much more. I'm sure you will agree."
The Zabalazi hit-maker said her partner has been a great asset in helping raise her.
She said, "My partner is who I'm really co-parenting with. She has been so selfless and committed and loving."
Thandiswa assured fans she would include the process of discovering she's a lesbian and coming out as gay to friends and family in her documentary.
