Zodwa Wabantu: ‘Money changed my mind about marriage’
Zodwa Wabantu explains the main reason make her to change her mind on marriage after she was declared not never get married.
Speaking with TshisaLIVE, Zodwa said she’s about to get marriage with her Ben 10 but under her conditions.
“I was sure I would never get married and when I said it, I meant it. But things changed for me. Money changed my mind, it gave me options,” she said.
Zodwa admitted that her initial reasoning behind saying she would never get hitched was the thought that no man would ever be able to handle her. But as the money kept rolling in and she was able to tick off the big items on her to-do list, marriage began to look more appealing.
“In the beginning, I thought no man would ask me out … with plans to stay with me. I know who I am and I am a strong woman – not many men can deal with that. But more than that, I had more important sh*t to do. Like I have a son, whose future I had to ensure was secure,” she said.
“I had a house to build and other things, so marriage wasn’t appealing. It looked like a task, I wasn’t ready for – or wanted.”
Now, having proposed to the man of her dreams, bought herself an expensive ring and started preparing for the big do in June, Zodwa says she’s ready to be a wife – but on her own terms, of course.
But we just had to ask: is this all simply for added clout or to boost her reality show’s ratings?
“No sweety,” answered Zodwa. “it has nothing to do with fame. I am just living my best life!”
