Macheso's divorce scandal

Tafadzwa's marriage to the musician was her third failed marriage. She demanded $7,130 monthly to cater for her children, Maneesha and Alick Junior, but the court sliced the divorce settlement to $1,030 per month.

He denied Tafadwa's accusations that he would ejaculate into a child's mouth to cure nhova, a child's fontanelle. In this traditional practice, a father slides his manhood all over the child's face, ears, and head.

Tafadzwa's second claim was that her husband's small manhood did not satisfy her. Therefore, she refused to get intimate with him after giving birth to their second child. Silva demanded a DNA test on Tafadwa's children, and it proved he was their father.
