In the lead up to the anniversary of his death, Simz took to social media to share that it was time to take off her wedding ring. 

"We have a love-hate relationship, sometimes I look at you and I smile. Sometimes I look at you and my heart bleeds. It’s almost time to let you go and the thought of living without you makes me anxious but holding on to you is more painful.

"I promise to keep you safe and to one day give you to the woman who will be Kgosi’s heartkeeper. I will love you, forever and always." 

Returning to social media on the anniversary of Dumi's death, Simz said apart of her died with Dumi.
