Zodwa Wabantu is breaking all the rules and her fiancé, Ntobeko Linda, is only too happy to join her. Their latest escapade involves him taking her surname after they marry.
The controversial dancer shot to fame years ago for her preference of ditching her underwear and has since been labelled somewhat of a feminist icon by her supporters. She loves to go against the grain.
Zodwa surprised everyone earlier this month when she got down on a knee and proposed to her Ben 10, Ntobeko Linda. She even purchased the rings for both of them at her cost and has expressed that she will be sending representatives from her family to Ntobeko’s family to negotiate lobola.
She is going against African tradition where the bride price is observed, it is a man’s duty that he pay his bride’s family in a heterosexual relationship. Payment is determined different in a gay or lesbian relationship.
According to TshisaLive, Zodwa and Linda spoke to the Daily Sun recently where he revealed he will be taking on his future wife’s surname when they officially marry.
“We have talked about it and we agree,” said Zodwa before she explained that culture had nothing to do with the way they choose to live their lives.
“But culture has nothing to do with us. We were not there when old people decided to do things their way. We will decide things ourselves,” said Zodwa.
She added: “We are different and we want to do things differently. Some people may not like the way we do things but we don’t care. I love my fans but this is a personal issue.”
Earlier today, Briefly.co.za reported that Zodwa Wabantu took to social media to squash the rumours about her and her mother-in-law being at loggerheads.
Zodwa Wabantu and her fiancé Ntobeko Linda are going to tie the knot soon. But before Zodwa could do that, she had to let her fans know that there wasn’t any trouble in paradise or with her future in-laws.
The dancer’s relationship with Ntobeko has been criticised a lot due to the large age difference between them. There was also rumours that Ntobeko’s family was against Zodwa being part of their family. The trio, Zodwa, her fiancé Ntobeko and his mom took to Instagram to end all speculation once and for all.
