- Ayanda has been battling with the loss of her best friend, who was also her husband
- She says that his memory and soul lives on with her, but that it is still hard that he is not physically here
- Ayanda and Letshego met on a cover shoot and have bonded over the loss of their husbands
The love between Ayanda Ncwane and Sfiso Ncwane was one that all of us would give anything to experience. After his passing, there was so much emptiness, not only the gospel scene but also in the lives of those that loved him, reported ZAlebs.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Ayanda was asked how she was coping since the death of her husband. She answered, that she has looked to the lord for strength.
She also said that she cannot account for exactly what has helped her through and puts it down to the grace of God that she has managed to keep it together.
Ayanda also explained on an interview with SABC 3 talk show, that spiritually you and your husband are connected and when one dies you die too.
As she said, the marriage vow you make ‘till death do us part’ is that there is a part of you that has been separated, but you need to pick yourself up and start a new beginning.
She spoke about how she feels that culture has been twisted in the behaviour of women when they have lost their husbands. She says that it is not a South African thing that women have to lose their identity, her dignity and her attire has to be of a certain colour to indicate that she is a widow.
She made a plea to churches and communities to not treat women that have lost the husbands any differently.
The cover of Essays of Africa magazine was that of Ayanda and Letshego Zulu.
Two Queens both lost their best friends of 15 years and got knocked down hard, but they chose to rise and adjust their crowns to raise their kids as single moms with pride.
Ayanda shared something that is so strange. Her and Letshego were born in the same year, same month with only a few days apart. The two even met their husbands to be in the same year, and sadly they lost their other halves in the same year.
The two women only met each other recently and bonded quickly over their grief. Despite their losses, they have made the decision to continue living, and that, is the most powerful thing you can do.
