Nhlanhla Mafu celebrates late daughter’s 19th birthday

Nhlanhla Mafu marks her daughter’s posthumous birthday.

The singer’s daughter, Zinathi would have been 19 years old today.

She was killed in a car accident in 2009.

Taking to social media, the Mafikizolo star penned a birthday note to her late daughter.

“My dearest daughter Zinathi, happy Heavenly 19th birthday. There’s always so much I want to say but words always fail me. All I know is that I would give anything to just hear you say ‘mom’ again. Nothing can ever fill the emptiness I feel in my heart because that part of my heart was designed and custom-made just for you.”

“I find comfort in knowing that I’m with you and you are with me always. And I thank God for giving me the best 6 years of my life. Your loving mom till the end of time,” she wrote.


Nhlanhla has made it her tradition to write birthday messages for her late daughter every year.

The singer took to Instagram last year on what would have been Zinathi’s 18th birthday, speaking of the love she will forever have for her daughter.

“I could write verses upon verses talking about my eternal love for you, Zinathi, and how I miss you incredibly. But even then it could never be enough to fill the void I feel in my heart. Happy Heavenly 18th Birthday, MaRhadebe. Mommy will forever love you.” she wrote.

In a now-deleted Instagram post from 2021, the singer said after the death of Zinathi, she experienced a lot of heartbreak and thought she would never recover.

“I thought it was the end of me, the pain and the hurt was so deep, so intense and so unbearable, I never thought I’d be able to survive another day.”
