Former Miss Tanzania Wema Sepetu has paid a glowing tribute to her late father, Abraham Isaac Sepetu.

In a message on his 76th birthday, Sepetu stated that her father is dearly missed.

Expressing hope that they will one day meet again, Sepetu noted the void he left can never be filled.

 “If only you were alive, today would’ve been your 76th birthday daddy. My true Libra king. I celebrate you today daddy. I love you so very much, now until forever. May you continue to rest in eternal peace my only true and first love,” Wrote Wema Sepetu.

Wema Sepetu added that it hurts that she cannot see him anymore.

“Oh God! I just miss you so much it hurts. I want to call, sing and come to you give you the biggest hug ever but I can’t! Inauma Mungu wangu. Sidhani kama hali hii inazoeleka Yarabby. I love you I love you I love you daddy!” 

Eulogizing the deceased eight months ago, the actress revealed that she wishes to be buried next to her dad who died in 2013.

“Couldn’t come home and not go see my First Love. I miss my Daddy. Feels so good to spend some quality time with him. I know he is happy.

“I miss you so much. That was the first thing I said to him. And I know I will always miss him till the day I die. But something that makes me happy is the fact that I will be buried next to my daddy when I die. Inshallah. Keep resting in Eternal peace my love,” said Sepetu after an emotional visit to Abraham Isaac’s final resting place.
