Popular South African Socialite and dancer Zodwa Wabantu, 33, is obviously not here to conform to everybody else’s definition of normal.
Recently she proposed to her 24-year old ‘Ben 10’ boyfriend,Ntobeko, stating that she’s paying lobola (bride price) for him and has now revealed he’s going to take her surname after their wedding.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Zodwa explained that it was something they were still discussing, but made it clear that it’s not that she doesn’t want to take Ntobeko‘s surname. In fact she was thinking she may have double-barrelled surname.
“We haven’t actually spoken about this matter properly, so it may change as we sort out out life before the wedding. Yes, he will take my surname if he wants and I will take his or add his but it actually doesn’t really matter because all that matters is that we are getting married. People just need to accept that we won’t follow (societal) rules, we are doing this our own way,” she said.
Zodwa said she wasn’t worried about what people have to say about any part of her relationship and she wasn’t planning on starting now as she’s headed to the altar.
