Actress Simphiwe Ngema wiped tears from her face after a listening to a song of tribute for her late husband, Dumi Masilela.

The Hope Restoration Church in Kempton Park on Joburg's East Rand is packed to capacity as friends, family and colleagues unite to celebrate the life of the Rhythm City actor.

Dumi was shot and killed in a botched hijacking in Tembisa last week. It's the first time his new bride has made a public appearance since the incident. Wearing a black dress and hat, she is seated next to Dumi's mother.
