There's no denying that Dumi Masilela was a talented dude and one of the songs he worked on just before his death just over a year ago was released on Wednesday morning.

The song‚ Uphushiwe‚ is a love song with a brilliant afro-beat that will get you moving.

Masilela sings about how he sent his uncle's to his girl's family with lobola and then he sings "now you can come to my family home".

It's no doubt a song that will be played at weddings and will help others celebrate their happy moments.

Simphiwe Ngema‚ who was accompanied by Masilela's best friends Bongani and Thato‚ shared her excitement with the Fresh Breakfast crew about the release of the sing.

"It feels so different that he's not here with us enjoying this moment because we know if he was here‚ he would screaming and whatever‚ you know... and climbing the walls. Because he was just that energy. He was amazing!"

And just in case you feel like you've heard the song before‚ it's because you have! We first got a taste of the song when videos of Ngema and Masilela's wedding surfaced.

This is the very song that Masilela serenaded Ngema with during their traditional wedding ceremony.

Remember this?
