A year ago Nomsa Buthelezi a.k.a ‘Gomorrah Diva’ and her partner Zandile Shezi tied the knot in an intimate traditional ceremony.
The presenter and her physiotherapist wife posted a video where they went in-depth about their relationship saying it was love at first sight.
Their affair was a long-distance relationship with Zandile having resided in Ladysmith and Nomsa in Johannesburg.
“We got married last year on 28 September. We met in Mpumalanga at Riah and Simphiwe’s wedding and it was my first gay wedding. When I saw Zandile, I told my makeup artist there’s my type. Then Zandile also noticed me. Then her best friend ran towards our bus and started greeting and kissing me on the cheek,” explained Nomsa.
“After the ceremony, Zandile asked us to join them for the reception. I went back to meet her and her friends. Sometimes I become sad because I’ve to leave my kids but I taught them to be strong. I was also going through things and I feel God knew what I wanted and I didn’t pay attention. Things happened as a miracle and my life changed. There was something different about her.” But I was also very scared because of past relationships,” said the presenter.
“I started proposing at the reception. She tried avoiding the subject but I persisted. When I proposed, she didn’t believe me until I told her to ask for a date from her father. A date for lobola negotiations was set and my team left for Joburg. At first, it was difficult, because they were demanding a high price but my chief negotiator convinced them. Eventually, they reached common ground, said Zandile.”
Nomsa continued to reflect on the times’ people have pretended to support her relationship with Zandile.
