Nandi Madida is a well-know singer, actress and television presenter. She gained fandom when she released the hit Tonight in 2011.
The singer is happily married to fellow musician Zakes Bantwini. She is deeply in love with her husband and appreciates what he adds to her life.
Nandi recently shared on social media how lucky she felt to be married to Zakes, whom she married in 2016. They have an adorable little boy together named Shaka.
But Nandi did not expect to get married at all. She never really gave marriage much thought.
It's so funny because I was never the wedding type of girl, whether we talking white wedding or traditional.
That was until she met Zakes, who knocked her off her feet.
But I met someone who I knew I wanted to get married to, if that makes sense.
Nandi has always been a fan of Zakes' music but she never would have thought she'd marry the musician.
In fact, she'd never would have wanted to marry into the musical industry. She said that when she met Zakes, though, she knew.
She knew by knowing him for a few years that he was someone she could be married to and make it work.
She added that her husband is a sweet guy and a great human being.
The couple prefers to keep their private life private and would rather make the news because of their careers.
Nandi advises couples to keep their relationship between themselves. She says that no one should have power over a couple's relationship.
She added that people will always try to break something that is beautiful, but couples should stay focused on each other.
Little Shaka has been a highlight for Nandi and Zakes.
The happy mom bought Shaka an unconventional present for his first birthday - land.
She hopes for Shaka hand down his piece of land to his children and keep it in the family.
Nandi considers this kind of gift to be worth more than games or toys. She wanted to give her son something that would not decrease in value over time.
Nandi is contend with what she has been blessed with, but she is still working on her goals.
