A few months ago, rumours started circulating that one of our favourite SA couples had tied the knot. Zakes Bantwini and Nandi Mngoma have always been notoriously private about their relationship so it came as no surprise that they were mum about details around their wedding. Yesterday however, Nandi debuted her new clothing line Colour at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Joburg. At the end of the show, as she walked the ramp she revealed that she was pregnant sending the internet into a frenzy. The couple has since released a statement about their nuptials and pregnancy.
I have so much to celebrate, My new single #Amantombazane, My Album #LOVELIGHTANDMUSIC2 I’m working on, My marriage, Our pregnancy, God has truly blessed me this year. More than 3years ago of being in a relationship my wife and I decided to make our relationship private and not make a career out of our relationship. As excited as we have been about certain things, As Africans by culture we you wait until the right time to divulge such sensitive news as a pregnancy. But unfortunately we had been robbed of such privilege by us being public figures. We decided to make the news official yesterday on our own terms than feeling pressure to succumb to speculation and rumours about our lives. But we’re lucky to have amazingly supportive parents and family who have been our rocks and pillars who continuously wish us well. Now that we’ve cleared the air, myself and my beautiful wife ask that we be given some privacy and respect to continue to enjoy this new chapter in our lives together. Thank you All 🙏🏿
