Legendary musician Caiphus Semenya celebrated his 80th birthday in style at the Market Theatre on Sunday.
The star studded event was attended by Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, Condry Ziqubu, Letta Mbulu, Minister Nathi Mthethwa, Dali Mpofu and even Julius Malema.
His wife and music legend in her own right Letta Mbulu gave a heart warming speech. “I love you, mind and soul. In your arms I feel so complete and safe. I feel warm,” she said.
She added that Caiphus gave her hope to carry on. She declared her undying love and devotion to him. The couple, who have been together for over 5 decades shared an intimate moment on stage when Caiphus sang for her.
Caiphus also paid tribute to Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba. “I really wish Miriam was here. I wish Hugh was here because I walked this journey with them,” he said.
