Award-winning singing sensation Zahara has revealed that preparations are underway for her to tie the knots with her long-term boyfriend Umhlobo Wenene radio personality Amaza Ntshanga.
The singer added that Ntshanga had already paid her lobola last weekend. This was done at her home in Phumulani village near East London last weekend.

Subsequently, there will be a welcoming ceremony to usher in the son-in-law into their family. The ceremony will begin with Ntshanga, with his family posse, spending the night with Zahara’s family.
It will then come to an end in the morning when the son-in-law will get to meet the men in the family. Zahara’s father will conclude the process by presenting her to her new family.
Some of the traditional practices on the appointed day will see Zahara walk barefoot for a week after the utsiki ceremony that will welcome her to the Ntshangas.
This will later lead to a traditional wedding and a white wedding. And though she did not want a big wedding, her family insisted that it has to be a big celebration. To crown it all, Top Billing asked to cover it.
There’s no particular date for the occasion yet. But, it’s likely to take place in the first quarter of 2017.
The two lovebirds have been dating since 2011 though they know each other from way back. As a matter of fact, Mzansi’s singing sensation Zahara used to act as an intermediary between Ntshanga and his then girlfriend known as Kholiwe.
Incidentally, when he heard her single Lengoma, Ntshanga told his listeners that he was going to marry the woman behind the voice. Meanwhile, he didn’t know it was the same 13-year-old he used to send to call his former girlfriend. What a twist!
