In the long letter on Instagram titled “Dear Daddy”, Letoya went in-depth on the struggles she faced after revealing her lesbian status to the nation. You said that some would be vicious about my newfound love. You also said that they would have YOU to deal with! You know how much I’ve dealt with in my journey through life, daddy [sic],” she wrote.

“Now I lay in the arms of a woman who honours my being, a woman who sees and appreciates me BECAUSE I AM A WOMAN. Someone I will never have to pretend to be less than because of my power makes her feel insecure. Thank you, daddy, for the blessing you gave us.”

The Ngihawukele musician also wrote that people had been vicious her newly found love, noting that she had been told numerous times to ask for forgiveness and repent. But she said she said she never anticipated that the love she prayed for would come “wrapped and packaged in the form of a woman”

Letoya’s father Blondie, said he was happy that his daughter found love and considered it a lesson to men that women could stand on their own. “Women have been there for each other through the best and worst times. This has been seen over the ages as women would run to each other when they needed sugar, help with a sick child, advice on how to keep a relationship going and when another woman struggled with orgasm, they were there for each other”.

Dear daddy @realblondiemakhene You said that some would be vicious about my new found love. You also said that they would have YOU to deal with! ☺️ You know how much I've dealt with in my journey through life, daddy. How many times I've been told to repent and forsake my ancestors - for hell surely awaits me. Now - as we predicted - the same people are telling me once again that hell awaits me because I've finally found everything that I've ever prayed for in a lifelong partner. It's crazy how The Universe works. I put in the work. Realigned myself with the Universe and watched my prayers come to fruition. The one thing that I could never have predicted is that the kind of love that I prayed for would be wrapped and packaged in the form of a woman. I stood before my God and asked Him if this was a joke. I also reminded Him that I remember being very specific in my requests. He gave me 2 choices. One was to receive His gift of love as is, the other was to walk away and lose myself bit by bit to men who will never really understand or honour me because of the power that I possess through the gifts that He has given me. Society has taught our men that the woman by their side needs to understand that she answers to him. That she is there to serve him and to not so much as question him when he does wrong. See, as humble and as respectful as I've always been, daddy, I honestly have always battled with this concept. To finally reach adulthood and be financially independent, but to watch myself being stripped of this independence because I made a choice to be Mrs. A choice to "not live in sin" and where has it gotten me? Only you know the dark truths behind my past relationships, dad. Now I lay in the arms of a woman who honours my being, a woman who sees and appreciates me BECAUSE I AM A WOMAN. Someone I will never have to pretend to be less than because my power makes her feel insecure. Thank you daddy for the blessing you gave us. Yours and God's is the only blessing that matters. I will continue to pray for our women who judge me, yet they subject themselves to abuse and being made to feel less than - just because they are women. ❤️ Nkgono aka Letoya

” Letoya has been through a lot and now she found comfort in a woman, there is nothing wrong with that. We know that many men fail to give their women orgasm and just the feeling of being loved. So if they can do it themselves, why not?”, asked Blondie.

Blondie further went to blast Christians who discouraged same-sex relationships. “Lebogang and Letoya have my blessings”, the proud dad signed off.
