Simphiwe Dana is a Xhosa singer and songwriter in South Africa. She recently came out to announce the death of her Mother which she annouced on Twitter saying:
"Our wonderful mother, MamJoli, left us earlier today.
We are wounded, but grateful for the grace with which she raised us and all her other adopted children. Please hold us in prayer."
It can be remembered that about six months ago, she lost her dad. Now her mom is gone, although she was diagnosed with Diabetes. So many condolence messages have been coming in for her as social media as fans, industry friends and loved ones try to show their support to Dana and her family during this trying time.
