Managing regrets and starting afresh are always good things, and this is what singer and songwriter Simphiwe Dana is doing when it comes to the father of her children.

Not long ago she received backlash on social media for calling South African men “gold-diggers”.

She wrote in a post, “They ask for Uber. You buy them airtime. You pay for the rent. They’re driving your car, using your bank card. And you’re paying all the bills. Shameless, still have the audacity to go out there and say they’re taking care of you. That you a gold digger. They’re not paying maintenance.” .
