Okielant Nkosi and his superstar wife Sindi Dlathu are one of South Africa’s most beloved couples. The duo has been together for years, building an adorable family and raising their kids. Ever since their family name started ringing a bell within and outside the South African movie scene, Okielant has maintained a low-key profile on his personal life and family life.
The same, however, cannot be said of his wife, Sindi. She is one of the most recognizable faces in both the local and international movie communities, having worked with prominent artists and performers in South Africa and beyond its shores. Regardless of this, it is difficult to take away the fact that her success is deeply connected to him.
Okielant Nkosi And Sindi Dlathu Have Been Married For Years
Okielant Nkosi and Sindi Dlathu have been living together as husband and wife for a couple of years. It is not known exactly when they tied the knot, where their wedding ceremony took place, and how exactly their paths crossed. Neither the actress nor her husband has ever shared publicly how they’ve been fairing in their day-to-day activities as a couple.
What is obvious, however, is that Okielant is in a blissful matrimonial union. Though they may have had their fair share of marital woes, none of them has been able to weigh them down or ruin their relationship.
The Nkosis are not only successful in their respective fields of endeavor, their marriage is also one of the most admired marriages in the entertainment industry. They literally rose to fame through Sindi’s performances and love for privacy on her family matters and not as tabloid fixtures.
They Are Parents To Two Kids
Singer Sindi and her husband share two adorable kids. The couple had their kids in South Africa after their marriage but decided to keep information about their birth and personal lives away from the media. This explains why their names, pictures, and whereabouts are under the radar. It seems the actress wants her children to live a normal life (like most of their mates) and away from the prying eyes of the media.
Given Okielant and Dlathu’s personalities, we are certain the duo has amazing parenting skills. For now, the actress hasn’t revealed if any of her kids have an interest in following in her footstep as an entertainer. Her fans are hopeful that one day Sindi will let them into her family’s world and other aspects of her life that is not known to the public.
Okielant Nkosi And His Wife Are Wildly Private
Sindi Dlathu is one celebrity who has proved that it is possible to keep one’s personal life and family matters away from the public regardless of the intrusiveness of the paparazzi and wild media attention. Sindi is famous, yet discreet. She hardly discusses her marriage, family life, and some sensitive part of her personal life with her fans on social media. Her husband and kids are not even known to the public because she has never shared their pictures and personal lives with people.
While some of her fans are not comfortable with this, the Meadowlands-born native does not have a problem with her decision. A lot of celebrities are usually misunderstood, judged, and even criticized whenever they give too much information about themselves and the people around them; this could be one of the reasons Dlathu has decided to remain tight-lipped on her family life.
Mrs. Nkosi has traveled to places for performances right from the early days of her career. Although she has never mentioned or shared pictures of her family’s special times with the public, her fans believe she still finds time in her busy schedule to hang out with her husband and kids. Others believe they do go on vacations and celebrate their birthdays, even though the actress has never shared pictures of their special moments on her social media pages.
Unlike His Wife, Okielant Nkosi Is A Total Stranger To The Spotlight
Okielant Nkosi may have a celebrity wife, but he stays far away from the spotlight. Unlike his wife, information about his life and business is not splashed everywhere around. It seems he is not the type that enjoys tweeting life updates, sharing info about his personal life, family affair, home, or even craving the attention of the media, the public, and the paparazzi.
It is difficult to tell how Sindi’s fame has rubbed off on Okielant and how well he takes being in the spotlight because of his celebrity wife since there are no constant images of him circulating online or regular stories about him in pop culture publications. Even though hiding from the public or staying out of the spotlight seems to be a tough job, Okielant has learned to make it work.
When The Camera Stops Rolling, Sindi Dlathu Enjoys Going Back To Being ‘Normal’
Mrs. Nkosi, no doubt, is definitely in the spotlight. She has been active in the South African entertainment industry right from her pre-teen days. She has had recurring roles in high-profile South African projects like Sarafina! (1997-2007) and Muvhango (1997-2007) and also banded together with prominent international talents like American multi-talented star Whoopi Goldberg, Afro-American choreographer, Michael Douglas Peters, as well as American jazz and R&B singer, Randy Crawford.
She earned her career breakthrough through her role in Sarafina, having toured the United States of America for a year with the play. Her outstanding talent also earned her the attention of South African stars such as the late Nomhle Nkonyeni, Mbongeni Ngema, Abigail Kubeka, and Mary Twala.
Recently, she walked home with the 2020 DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards. Since 2018, the Meadowlands’ superstar has been playing the fictional character of Lindiwe Dlamini-Dikana in the telenovela, The River. Through her role as the lead character, the actress has won the hearts of many, despite her tasking role.
Regardless of the glitz and glamour, Sindi Dlathu still enjoys hiding away from the public and keeping information about her personal life and family far away from the curious public and media. In addition to her job, she loves focusing on being a wife and mother. She is very protective of her family to the extent no one knows what her husband and children look like.
