ProVerb, whose real name is Tebogo Sidney Thapelo Thekisho, revealed in his book entitled “The Book of ProVerb” that his late mother, Dr. Nomonde Thekisho, fought against his decision to tie the knot with Onalerona. As a result, she was absent on his wedding day. Onalerona Moreo walked down the aisle with her high school boyfriend in 2005.
Soon after the wedding, the couple welcomed their first child. Some years later, they further expanded their family with the arrival of their second child. Onalerona Moreo and ProVerb were one of Mzansi’s cutest couples, as they seemed happy in love. Following her marriage to a celebrity, the businesswoman was quite popular in the country.
Sadly, the beautiful couple’s love story ended ten years after becoming man and wife. In 2014, it was reported that there was trouble in the couple’s paradise and that their marriage was on the verge of hitting rock bottom. The two reportedly attended counseling sessions in order to save their union. Eventually, in 2015, Onalerona and ProVerb got separated.
Why Did Onalerona Moreo Divorce ProVerb?
Onalerona and ProVerb jointly agreed to go for a divorce in 2015 after efforts to work things out in their marriage seemed unproductive. It was reported in mid-2015 that the Parktown native was cheating on her husband with the business tycoon Edwin Sodi, the founder of the Blackhead Group. Based on the report, the two started the illicit affair in 2013 after meeting at a car wash in Ruimsig, west of Johannesburg.
Soon after their meeting, they started spending time together, dining at different restaurants where they showed affection for one another in public. It was alleged that Sodi lured Moreo into the affair by purchasing her expensive gifts as her husband wasn’t financially well off then. The businessman even took ProVerb’s wife to Dubai in June 2014, where they celebrated her birthday.
@JustMla Its all been verified I'm afraid and this time it's all true. I learnt on Friday and at least had a day to prepare for the blow.

Edwin Sodi reportedly bragged to his friends about sleeping with Onalerona Moreo and claimed to have introduced her to a good life. Even though Moreo introduced Edwin Sodi to her husband as a friend she met at a car wash, the media personality sensed that something was up between them as she was acting somewhat strange.
He eventually learned about Onalerona’s cheating after a journalist called him in 2014 to inform him about his wife’s trip to Dubai with Sodi. He was devastated as his wife lied to him that the overseas visit was just a business trip. He then confronted Onalerona Moreo afterward about her extramarital affair with Edwin Sodi. Even though she denied it initially, ProVerb could tell that the cheating rumor was true from her body language.
@boikgositheword Lets spare her the judgement nobody is perfect I certainly I am not. My wish now is to try and shield the children.

Onalerona eventually opened up to her husband about the affair, and the two tried to work things out in their marriage. They went for counseling, hoping for things to go back the same. Sadly, they realized that they couldn’t be together anymore and decided to call it quits in 2015.
ProVerb attested to his wife’s cheating in a social media post and pleaded with his fans not to judge her in order to protect his children. The former couple’s divorce was later finalized in the next year.

Onarelona Moreo and her ex-husband went through a rough period after their divorce. The rap artist even tried to take his life when he found out about his wife’s cheating, but his suicide attempt failed. Onalerona, on the other hand, decided to give herself time to heal. She faced public humiliation, but she devoted herself to prayer and meditation.
Eight months after her divorce, ProVerb’s ex-wife decided to share her ordeal with the public. She wrote a lengthy post on Instagram about being devasted when the story about her extramarital affair hit the internet and how she would face judgment from her family and South Africa as a whole. Thankfully, she recovered from the dark moment after handing everything over to God and is now enjoying marital bliss with her new husband.
