Samantha Mumba has posted a touching tribute to her father Peter on Instagram after he passed away in March at the age of 66.

In the post, Samantha Mumba revealed that Peter Omero Mumba passed away on March 20 and starts her tribute by saying: ‘I’ve been in two minds about whether to post- as this is so personal and you have always been so private.’

The singer goes on to say ‘however it doesn’t feel right not acknowledging you and our immeasurable loss,’ before adding ‘You were one of one. A deeply intelligent, complicated, intuitive, sarcastic, funny, authentic, shy, observant, protective and proud man. I am forever grateful to have your DNA in my veins.’

Samantha, who shot to fame in 2000 with the release of her single ‘Gotta Tell You’, concludes with the words: ‘Until we meet again Dad on the other side of the stars.’

Along with the above post, the singer added a few more pictures of herself and her beloved father to her Instagram Stories.

He was a man who Samantha was obviously very proud of and it’s a touching tribute to someone who was no doubt equally proud of her as she conquered the pop world.
