- Nandi Madida and her hubby Zakes Bantwini want to change their marriage contract
- They have applied at the Johannesburg High Court to allow them to convert their 'in community of property' contract to that of 'out of community of property'
- Zakes revealed that the songstress doesn't have any assets to her name while he owns two multi-million-Rand mansions in Durban and Joburg
One of Mzansi's fave couple Zakes Bantwini and his wife Nandi Madida have pleaded with the Johannesburg High Court to allow them to convert their union to out of community of property.
The two lovebirds got married on 8 June, 2016 in Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal in community of property. According to court papers, Zakes has revealed that they erroneously entered into in community of property marriage because of their "misunderstanding with the marriage officer".
Zakes and the Skhanda Love hitmaker recently applied for a court order to remove the songstress from their multi-million-Rand joint estate. Their joint estate includes a R3.5 million house in Durban and a R1.5 million property in Joburg.
According to Sunday World, Zakes said before their marriage, he and Nandi - who is the second applicant in the case - had planned to be married out of community of property without the application of the accrual system.
Zakes revealed that Nandi doesn’t have assets to her name, according to the affidavit seen by the publication.
The Yekokwam hitmaker said he owns a R3.4 million house in Morningside, Durban, and a R1.5 million mansion in Thornhill, Modderfontein, in Joburg.
He said they would enter into a post-nuptial notarial contract and would not prefer the accrual system to apply into post-nuptial notarial contract because they individually have successful careers and independent sources of income.
Nandi signed a confirmatory affidavit agreeing to the dissolution of their in community of property marriage, added the publication.

A woman identified as Rakgadi spilled the beans about her late brother's wife's infidelity at the service. Rakgadi was supposed to speak about her brother Lebogang Khitsane's business successes, but she decided to go after his wife in front of the mourners. Khitsane was a known tombstone maker.
Mzansi celebs took to social media to share their views following the sad story. Actress Masasa Mbangeni said:
"When his gorgeous daughter said, 'That's it', I knew it was on! I would have done the same for my mother. Even after years together in-laws treat our mothers in the most vile way when our fathers die. A sad South African story."
