Johannesburg - We all miss the late musician Davido Masondo. But perhaps none more than Deborah Fraser.

The gospel star was shaken by David's death last year (more on that here) and channeled her grief into a song.

Talking to the Sowetan this week, Deborah reveals that her song Lalani Ngoxolo is dedicated to the late muso with whom she worked.

"He was one of the most talented musicians I was blessed to work with," she says of David.

"Although he sang mbaqanga, he could do any music. You'd ask him for a song and within minutes he would give you direction. I'm sad that he's gone," she added.

Deborah says that when she last recorded with David she could tell he was unwell.

"He was very sick. Even when we did our last recording I could see that he wasn't well. He put up a brave face and said he was OK," she remembers.

Deborah has made headlines recently, after reports that she had a new man in her life (more on that here) but Deborah says the rumours have hurt her.

"Some things are sensitive and can dent one's image when wrong stories and lies are written about you - (like) giving me all these men in South Africa. I'm a clothed woman at my church," she says.

"I'm more into God and I don't entertain negative things. I'm not a girl (any more). I'm focused at church and on my calling. I've accepted that I have to do work for God," she adds.
