South African dancer Zodwa Wabantu has called off her wedding to Ntobeko Linda, stating that she needs her spark back.
This is sure not a good one for her fans and lovers who have been longing to see her tie the knot with her bae.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Zodwa Wabantu shocked her followers at the weekend after announcing on social media that she had called off her wedding.
She wrote: “I’m Loosing myself (sic). I need my spark back. I’m not happy anymore. Free Ntobeko, he’s still growing. No wedding.”
The fears of her fans were put to rest though, when she verified that the wedding would still take place, but not now.
Speaking to The Juice on Monday, she stated that the plans have only been put on hold.
She said: “I’m just tired from the relationship. I’m hurt so I’m taking time off from him. Not from the relationship or the wedding. So, it’s just a break.”
When asked if the decision was a mutual one between her and Ntobeko, the star said “no.” Surely taking similar pattern to her proposing to him, buying the ring, and also revealing that he is going to take her surname.
According to Zodwa, her decision to take a break from the relationship comes at a time where she feels like she is struggling to find “balance” in her life.
She said: “It’s up to me. I’ll see how I feel. Or if I’m okay. Or how I can fix our relationship.”
“I’m just feeling emotionally drained. I think it’s everything. So, I just need time off for myself then I will see.”
As we all know, the entertainer proposed to Ntobeko last month at Eyadini Lounge and said she was breaking tradition. She said instead of giving Ntobeko money to pay lobola, she would pay lobola to Ntobeko’s family.
She said: “We as women we give our men money to marry us. Hard working women hide that they marry themselves by giving their boyfriends money to go to their families to pay lobola. Some women get desperate to have that ring on their fingers But I don’t mind showing reality cause everything that has to do with Zodwa Wabantu is real. Mine is real, I will marry him. Thank you.”
