Lebo M’s current wife

The famous composer’s current wife is Pretty Samuels, a South African businesswoman and current president of the Lebo M Foundation. The news about their relationship surfaced in 2021, and they tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony the following year.

However, Morake is calling it quits after a year of being married to Samuels. According to Independent Online, he released a media statement in which he said,

“I will not be drawn into salacious allegations and innuendos about my business and personal life. I will be going ahead with the divorce and have already instructed my attorneys.”

Lebo M’s ex-wives

The altar is no stranger to Morake after being married more than three times. Who was Lebo M married to? Below is a brief list of the producer’s ex-wives:

Viveca Gipson

Lebo M’s first wife was Viveca Gipson, whom he met before his rise to fame. In this regard, details about their relationship and marriage are not public knowledge, but the former couple was married for five years and had two children, Zakiya and Nthabiseng.

Nandi Ndlovu

Following his divorce from Gipson, he met Nandi Ndlovu, a South African singer and actress who would be his second wife. The pair met during the production of Sarafina and exchanged wedding vows after a few years of dating. They were blessed with three children during their marriage: Refilwe, Tshepiso and Thembalethu.

Furthermore, things took a wrong turn when Ndlovu was accused of having extra-marital affairs with her husband’s colleague, which led him to file for divorce. Morake and Ndlovu were together for 11 years.

Angela Ngani-Casara

He then met his third wife, Angela Ngani-Casara, whom he married in 2008. His marriage to Ngani-Casara is explained to have been toxic due to arguments that characterised their relationship. In a media interview, he said she was violent and had a troubled background, which was sufficient for him to file for divorce. They were married for five years.

“I don’t know anything about the separation. I am busy running errands with the kids. These are news to me.”

How many times was Lebo M married?

He has been married four times and refuted claims from reports stating that he has been married seven times. Morake says he was never bothered about the number of times he is said to have been married.

“This was coming from a decade-long well-orchestrated smear campaign,” the award-winning composer explained.
