Monada has been with his first wife, Lerato Ramawela before he became an internationally celebrated music star. Although how they met and started dating is not known, but it is no secret that years later, they are blessed with two kids and the marriage seems to be going well for the pair.
In 2020, the Oskabora Moreki hitmaker got into a banter with his wife’s friend whose name was only given as Maite. He hurled unprintable insults at the woman and her mother, calling her a whore for encouraging his wife to leave him. According to him, the friend was claiming he had no respect for his wife and he was abusive towards her.
He claimed that he saw a WhatsApp message from his wife’s phone in which Maite was encouraging her to use his fame to make money for herself. When Lerato did not reply, that was when the woman encouraged her to leave her husband.
The South African music star later apologized for the insults, stating that he was only angry at the woman for telling his wife to leave him. He also asked his fans and South Africans to pardon him as he had already learned his lessons.
King Monada Met His Second Wife After She Dated A Local Celebrity
Although he loves his first wife, Monada still went ahead to get himself a second woman named Cynthia. His relationship with Cynthia Ntebatse Leon who is sometimes referred to as Cynthia Ntebatse Lion started after her relationship with another local celebrity, Djtokxy Godfrey, Cassel Mathale’s son, ended in heartbreak for her.

The whirlwind relationship led to marriage a few months after they met following reports that King Monada had paid lobola for the woman towards the end of 2018.
It was no secret that he was very much in love with his new wife. he bought a car for her and was never shy of sharing her pictures on social media, something that he didn’t do much of with his first wife.
His Second Marriage Came To An End Due To Alleged Nagging
After just a few years, the marriage reportedly came to an end due to issues that are rather complicated. According to a source, the marriage ended because Cynthia was always nagging each time her husband returned home late, even though she knew he was an entertainer. The source revealed that by virtue of his work, it was only normal for him to return home very late sometimes, being a performer who has to make money for the family. But his second wife wouldn’t take any of that.
A more serious allegation against her was that she had no respect for his family, including his mother. The Moreki hitmaker reportedly once sat down and discussed the issues with the family of Cynthia, but he decided he already had enough of her after she was involved in a heated argument with his mother.
After leaving the house, she later reportedly returned with a small bus and packed her stuff, marking the end of the marriage, at least for now. The singer sent her packing to go back to her parent’s house and be disciplined because she lacked respect.
