WHEN Thami Ngiza (31) saw the front page of Daily Sun on Wednesday she got the shock of her life!
Thami is one of Sifiso Simelane’s wives, but she had no idea that her husband wanted to marry South Africa’s Afro-pop queen, Zahara.
Thami, Sifiso’s wife from Daveyton, Ekurhuleni, said she went to the spaza shop to buy bread when she saw her husband’s face on the front page of the newspaper.
She said she couldn’t believe that the father of her two children, aged three and six, wants to pay 15 cows for Zahara when he cannot even look after his own children at home.
Thami said Sifiso had been missing for three months.
“He left without even saying goodbye,” she said.
Thami said she knows Sifiso has another woman in the same area, with whom he also has a child.
Sifiso confirmed to Daily Sun from Swaziland that he has two women in Daveyton. He said that although he loves them, he would make Zahara his first wife.
He insisted that he can have as many wives as he wants, because it is an African custom.
“I have many cows to pay for the woman of my choice,” he said.
He said he was not put off by Zahara’s rejection.
“All women take their time to give a man the right answer,” he said.
He said he will keep on pushing until he gets Zahara’s attention. “I believe that she will love me back,” he said.
Zahara’s manager and TS Records co-owner TK Nciza said he was aware from the beginning that all this guy wanted was just to appear in the newspapers and be famous using Zahara’s name.
“We took it as a joke and took no offence, but right now all our attention is on the Phendula Tour and nothing else,” he said.
