The rapper-turned-actor has apparently gotten over his widespread emotional breakdown and landed in Johannesburg on Tuesday with his wife Samantha Lee Gibson. Taking to Instagram, the 38-year-old wrote: “I can’t believe I’m here,” sharing a video of their exquisite penthouse suite.
Subsequently, Gibson shared a photo of him and his wife in the car on their way to meet the former First Lady as part of his visit to the country.
“As long as I have you and Shayla …….. I have everything I need….. Capricorn Scorpio season!!! First Lady of South Africa Winnie Mandela I can’t wait for you to meet my First Lady….. She wore pink just for you!!! Were on our way…….. We love You!!!”, he captioned the post.
Upon meeting Ma Winnie, the actor flooded the platform with several pictures and videos of his time with the struggle icon. Clearly, this is one of the highlights of his trip and even though he’s seeing her for the third time, Gibson just couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful the 80-year-old former first lady is.

It has been some difficult few weeks for Tyrese Gibson who sparked concerns for his mental health when he posted a video of him crying and in fits of rage over his custody battle with ex-wife, Norma Gibson. After all the public breakdowns, the father of one got joint custody of his 10-year-old daughter, Shayla. This follows a long, drawn-out court battle with Norma, who also claimed he was abusive towards their daughter.
To blow off steam and lighten up his mood, the Gibsons are here in Mzansi and wish them the best holidays.
