- Gospel artist Ntokozo Mbambo says the love of God as symbolised by Good Friday is the “greatest story of all time”
- She has shared that the greatest love in her life isn’t her husband, fellow musician Nqubeko Mbatha, but rather her deep personal relationship with Jesus
- in Mbambos eyes there is no greater expression of love than what Jesus did on the cross
The love story of gospel power couple, Nqubeko Mbatha and Ntokozo Mbambo, is one of the most beautiful in the South African music industry. However, when Mbambo married Mbatha, whom she met in 2001, he knew he was her second greatest love.
Briefly.co.za learned that the gospel artist shared that the love she has for her husband, and he for her, isn’t not the greatest love story in her eyes. Instead she points to the love of God demonstrated through the symbolism of Easter as being the greatest love story of all time.
"Its what salvation is all about. I truly believe that it is the greatest story ever told. Where God really demonstrated to his children the kind of love he has for them and one that they should have for each other. Where he gave his only begotten son to die in our place for our sins. That for me is the greatest expression of love," said Mbambo who says Jesus is everything to her.
"He's my best friend and he's my saviour. When I met Jesus, my life changed for the better and hence I say he's my everything."
Mbambo said knowing God loved the world so much that he was willing to sacrifice his son just so she could have "life and have it abundantly" was amazing for her.
She and Mbatha have two beautiful daughters together. They met and started dating after joining award-winning gospel group Joyous Celebration. When she first joined the group Mbambo was still in her teens and had no idea Nqubeko would someday be her husband.

In May they will be celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary and both say they are as happy as ever, they each praise God daily for the other.
Easter weekend is a busy one for the family who would be at church enjoying worship the whole weekend, but Mbambo says Good Friday is especially close to her heart as it holds great memories for her. "Church and church all the way. We would dress up and put our swag on. You know, put on our Sunday best. My mom would always cook before we go, so she would pack us lunch boxes (in Tupperware - there was no time for games phela that time) because we knew that we would spend the whole day there. I loved it so much, it's one of my fondest memories of childhood."
