Ngizwe Mchunu Wedding
The DJ is currently married to his third wife, Florida Mthimkhumulu, and even paid the bridewealth or lobola in October 2014. However, their wedding met several challenges when the first two wives prosecuted him to the Durban High Court to nullify the civil marriage and to stop them from getting married traditionally. Sphelele and Lindi complained that the DJ paid Florida’s lobola while he was still traditionally married to the first two wives.
The court ruled in favor of the first two wives and nullified the marriage. Nonetheless, the DJ and Florida tied knots in 2016 in the absence of the first two wives who said that they did not know of the wedding. Florida believes that the issues with her matrimony only happened because she had rejected her calling of being a sangoma. She went to Empangeni and trained to become one.
