Celebrity couple Nandi Madida and Zakes Bantwini have been married for a whole five years and Nandi took to social media to celebrate. Nandi wrote a heartwarming post about her husband on Instagram and is totally feeling all the love. She captioned her post:
"Do you know what today is? Happy 5th Anniversary my love @Zakesbantwini."
How the couple met and started their relationship
In 2017, the singer confessed to Anele Mdoda on Real Talk with Anele that she met her spouse at the South African Music Awards (SAMAs) nominee reception.
She explained that in the beginning, it was more about their careers than romance. She looked up to him for advice about music and he always gladly gave it to her.
"He was the guy who was helping me. If you've noticed actually, my career went on a trajectory once I met him because he was guiding me," she said according to SowetanLIVE.

Their unconventional route of dissolving their initial marriage contract
Zakes adores his wife, but he also treasures his personal belongings. This is why, after realizing they were married in community of property by mistake, Zakes Bantwini began legal action to amend their marriage contract according to News24.
"We understood incorrectly as it now appears that he would be in a position to ensure that our marriage would be out of community of property without the application of the accrual system,” Zakes explained in an affidavit.
Happy anniversary you two!
