Simphiwe Ngema one day woke up to be told her husband has died. A husband who wasn’t sick or anything. If there is anybody I wanted a happy ending for, it was her. We’ve seen her pain 😔.— uNhlaka Though (@uNhlaka_) August 12, 2020

Simphiwe Ngema chose to announce her pregnancy on the anniversary of the day her late hubby was laid to rest.The timing is weird. She has known for a long time that she is expecting the choice of date to announce is deliberate. Disrespect to the dead for clout 💔— Mr Handsome (@MrHandsome_ZA) August 12, 2020
Following the backlash that Simphiwe received, Stacey & JSbu engaged in a conversation with the rest of KZN on whether or not there is a certain time that a widow should wait out before she were to seek love again...
