Not many know this, but singer Nathi Mankayi who usually keeps his personal life off the limelight is a happily married man.
The singer known for his hit love song Nomvula where he poured his heart out surprised everyone when he revealed in an interview that he has been married for a year to a businesswoman who hails from Kimberley in the Northern Cape.
After the two were spotted by DRUM earlier this year, there were speculations that Nathi Mankayi was in a relationship.
According to the local publication, they were dressed in matching outfits (white shirts and navy fitted pants) outside a grocery store in Auckland Park, Johannesburg. In addition, she was present when they interviewed Nathi at his house a few months earlier. They reportedly met some years ago before Nathi’s fame and fortune and they have been going strong ever since.
Anyway, it appears the relationship overcame all the odds as the love birds have already tied the knot.
Apparently, we weren’t invited to the wedding as the pair opted for a secret wedding ceremony at Nathi’s hometown in the Eastern Cape.
Nevertheless, the most important thing is that the singer is having the time of his life as a married man. He confessed that married life has been good to him and he and his partner are growing together.
“Married life is good. We’re learning and growing together,” he confessed.
The Nomvula hit-maker decided to keep his love life from public eye for fear of jeopardizing the sales of his debut album Buyelekhaya.
Nathi’s album Buyelekhaya went platinum within six weeks of its release, making him one of a few artists in South Africa whose album went platinum in a matter of weeks after its release.
