Joyous Celebration Brought Ntokozo Mbambo and Nqubeko Mbatha Together
The love story of Ntokozo and Nqubeko began in the South African musical group, Joyous Celebration which they were both members of since their budding days as singers. Apart from the founders of the group, they were the first to join the group in 2001. At the time, the songstress was only 15 while the man who would later become her husband was 24 years old.
Ntokozo joined the group as a choir member before she rose to become a lead singer among other things while her husband started as a third keyboard player before he later became a producer for Joyous Celebration and also did the same for Ntokozo as a solo act.
When they first met in 2001, the singer did not know that Nqubeko was the man she was going to spend the rest of her life with. But along the way, the two moved from colleagues to friends and then lovers. They continued to have a genuine love for each other, something they have not abandoned more than a decade after they got married. According to her husband, what first attracted him to her was the genuineness of her love for God and the way she related with people. On her part, her attraction to him was the way he treated her differently and with respect.
Inside Their Extravagant Wedding
After dating for a while, Nqubeko Mbatha went on a knee to pop the question in a grand style with a ring, matching necklace, and earrings. Ntokozo was more than happy to accept the proposal.
All she wanted for her wedding was to arrive in a classy Rolls Royce but her father and husband decided she should have something even better. They made a provision for a chopper which conveyed her. To make the day even more glamorous for a queen that she is, Ntokozo’s wedding dress was imported from France.
The beautiful couple had a lavish western wedding on April 26, 2008, which was attended by family, friends, and other celebrities from the music industry. It was then followed by a traditional wedding event the next day.
The Couple Had A Hard Time When They Started As A Newly Wedded Couple
After they got married, Ntokozo Mbambo and her husband did not have smooth sailing because she did not settle easily as a married woman. According to her, she was raised as a conservative Christain Zulu girl whose parents did not allow her to get close to guys.
She was taught the need to stay away from men and because of this, she did not know how to expose herself to a man. This was a problem earlier in her marriage but she gradually learned and was soon comfortable undressing in front of her husband.
Ntokozo Mbambo and Nqubeko Mbatha Are Blessed With Two Children
Even with so much fame surrounding them, Ntokozo Mbambo and Nqubeko Mbatha have been very private about their family life. They show public affection for each other on social media and reveal the secrets of their successful marriage, but they make sure to keep all other details away from the public domain, including information about their children.
However, we know that thus far, their marriage has been blessed with two beautiful daughters. One of their daughters was born on May 14, 2011, which means she arrived a few weeks after the marriage anniversary of her parents. The second daughter was born on June 12, 2013.
Ntokozo has always praised her husband for the love he has for their daughters and the way he tries to always give them hugs and kisses. She has described him as a super dad. For now, the kids are still too young to decide a career path, and their parents have not revealed whether they are showing any musical talents, something that seems to be in the family.
Friendship And Similar Value Systems Are The Things That Have Kept Them Together
It is no small feat for a young couple as Ntokozo Mbambo and Nqubeko Mbatha to be together for up to a decade, but the gospel power couple has moved even beyond that, and they are not willing to walk out on each other.
According to them, the reason their relationship and marriage continue to flourish is because of the similar value systems and beliefs that they share and the fact that they both love God. More so, they stated that the true friendship that they have with each other is also the backbone of their relationship. Ntokozo revealed that even before they see themselves as man and wife, they were best of friends who do everything together.
Another thing that has helped their marriage according to Nqubeko is that they both understand their different roles in the family, and realize that they are both humans who cannot be perfect.
Ntokozo Mbambo and Nqubeko Mbatha Never Fail To Celebrate Each Milestone
The happily married couple has ensured that they take the time to celebrate each milestone in their relationship. They have made it a habit to celebrate not just their birthdays, but also each of their wedding anniversaries.
What is more fascinating is the way they always take to their social media on each of their anniversaries to display their love for each other. They did not hold back while celebrating their 11th anniversary in 2019 when the singer took to his social media to celebrate his wife and let the world know he is the man he is today thanks to the kind of woman he is married to.
They also celebrated each other during their 12th anniversary in 2020. While celebrating her man, Ntokozo revealed that if he were to ask her again, she was always going to say yes to marrying him.
