With a new single out titled, Shona Phantsi, and a budding acting career, Dumi Masilela has also revealed that his written a song for his dear wife Simphiwe.

Dumi has been hard at work promoting his new summer release, Shona Phantsi that has been causing a lot of buzz within the industry since its release. But Dumi Masilela isn't only focusing on the Shona Phantsi single only, speaking to ZAlebs Dumi also mentioned that he has written a song for his wife, actress, Simphiwe Ngema and the song will be released early next year.

"Yeah, the song is titled YENA be on the look out for it around Valentine's Day. It's a banger well she really loves it. " Said Dumi.

The actor also mentioned that he plans on working alongside his wife in future acting projects.

"I work with my wife every day and it's always fun because she doesn't only get it but she also sees it you know. As for the acting part, definitely one day she's gonna play a lead in a movie that Appleseed will shoot and maybe I'll walk in front of the camera as well who knows."

Dumi, who was also an Idols contestant on season 8 of the show took a step back from the music scene and focused more on his acting career. We asked Dumi why he had decided to place his music on hold for so long considering that he first stepped into the scene as a musician and not an actor.

"Music as an industry was something I really had to understand and get my head around because we can all produce dope jams but it's worthless if they don't take us out there and broaden our horizons. What happens to all the soldiers that were on singing competitions? A big majority just disappears. "

Apart from his acting Dumi is also working hard on his new production company.

"I'm the co-founder of Appleseed Productions alongside my partner Thato Mabaso. We do tv/film productions, event/artist management etc. We also do music obviously, we have Bongani 'Decaphè' Khumalo working on his project as well as our first artist we have signed. That's pretty exciting for us."

Dumi will be going on a nationwide to promote his single Shona Phantsi with his band and to also reincarnate himself as a musician and not just an actor.
