It has been confirmed that the wedding between Zodwa Wabantu and former flame Ntobeko Linda has been called off. It wasn’t the first time marriage between the pair had been reportedly called off, though.
Back last month, they were said to be preparing for marriage, but then the whole thing was called off. In fact, they had reportedly broken up several times in their relationship. They made up each time but have only just broken up again.
For those who have been routing for the couple and suggesting they take the relationship thing to “permanent site,” the news of the split will be shocking indeed, especially given that Zodwa Wabntu has proposed to her bae with a R61k engagement ring in May.
Zodwa Wabantu confirmed to TshisaLIVE that the cancelling of the wedding was her prerogative. “I cancelled the wedding. I am no longer getting married. Me and Ntobeko are finished. We have split.” She also added that calling of the wedding was “for good.“
Going further on why she called the whole thing off, she said she thought he would fight for her when she took a temporary break from him.
“I took a break from him and thought he would fight for me. But he was just quiet. I took that as a sign and so it’s off now.”
Until they split publicly, Zowa Wabantu and Ntobeko Linda were one of the most talked about couples in South Africa. There’s about 10 years gap in their ages, with Zodwa Wabantu as older of the two. It dowsn’t appear age was and is the issue between them.
Ntobeko Linda had stated back then that so long as Zodwa Wababntu doesn’t call him Ben 10, he is fine. Apparently she never called him the name.
Where Zodwa Wabantu had offered some words about their split, Notobeko Linda has been somewhat circumspect. Contacted he merely stated, to TshisaLIVE, that Zowa Wabantu knew what happened.
