Johannesburg- It's been five years since Nhlanhla Nciza lost her daughter, but the pain doesn't ever go away. 

The Afro-pop star recently appeared as a guest on KatchItWithKhanyi, where she spoke about Mafikizolo's journey over the past 13 years. 

Nhlanhla explained that the love and support they've received from South Africa and Africa as whole has been amazing. 

The singer also opened up about the pain of loosing her five-year-old daughter, Zinathi in a car crash in 2010. 

Little Zinathi was travelling with her grandmom to a nearby nursery school, when her grandmother who suffers from high-blood pressure, blacked-out behind the wheel.

Zinathi suffered severe head injuries and died in hospital a few hours later. 

"The most difficult thing for anyone to go through is for a mother to lose her child," she said. 

Nhlanhla explained that it is something that's still difficult for her to even talk about. "I often go to a mall and see children walking around and remember stuff that she used to do. With the support of my family and husband I can stand again but it's a struggle I've learnt to live with," she said. 

She added that its her faith and belief in God helps her through each day. "God has given me this challenge and he won't forsake me and will help me through this," she added.
