Kwaito singing sensation Nomasonto Maswanganyi, popularly known as Mshoza, got a very interesting new year present: she has been elevated to first wife by Witbank businessman Jacob Mnisi.
Last month, our sister newspaper Sunday World reported that Mshoza had accepted to be a second wife to Mnisi, who was already married to Funeka Yolanda Rampisa, 22.
Posing heavily pregnant Mshoza at the time, said she was happy to be Mnisi's second wife.
But in a bizarre twist, Mnisi told Sowetan yesterday that he had not registered his marriage to Rampisa.
He claimed he was to have completed the ilobolo proceedings for Rampisa but cancelled them when he discovered she was cheating on him.
"She brought her boyfriend into my house and after that I instructed my parents to inform her parents that I was not interested anymore," he said.
Mnisi also claimed Rampisa had married him fraudulently.
"I was called by someone close to her who told me that I have been married to her. When I went to the Home Affairs offices I discovered that I was indeed married to her without my knowledge," said Mnisi.
He has since opened a case of fraud with the police.
Mnisi said he had intended to marry Rampisa but after discovering she was cheating on him did not want to have anything to do with her.
Yesterday, Mshoza said although she was happy about being elevated to being the first wife, she was unhappy with the turn of events.
"I'm very sad about how it happened. I mean, she had everything she wanted," said the singer of Kortez fame.
"I'm the only one now. I'm happy as long as my husband is safe. We are going ahead with our plans," the excited musician said.
Mshoza, who turns 25 on Monday, will know then if she is carrying a boy or girl. She is six months pregnant. Meanwhile, Rampisa said she wanted to have nothing to do with Mnisi and Mshoza.
She claimed she had never accepted Mshoza as the second wife. She was adamant that Mnisi knew about the registration of their marriage.
"No one in his family liked me. They all thought I was after his money. He knew about the registration of the marriage.
