Death is the single constant in life, and it can strike anyone, regardless of wealth or social standing, at any time. Here are five South African celebrities who have become widows after losing loved ones.
1. Tsholo Matshaba.
Tsholofelo Matshaba is well known for her role in the SABC2 soapie Muvhango as conniving gold-digger Meme. On Saturday, December 27, 2014, the actress married Chris Matshaba, a former radio host. Sadly, the marriage only lasted four years. Tsholo became a widow after Chris died in February 2018 after a long fight with cancer.
2. Simphiwe Ngema.
She rose to prominence after portraying Thuli on Muvhango, became a widow at the young age of 27. Simz married Dumi Masilela, a musician and Rhythm City celebrity, in a stunning small wedding ceremony in May 2017. Unfortunately, their relationship was cut short when Dumi Masilela was tragically slain in a failed hijacking.
3. Lerato Sengandi.
Lerato Singandi, a former Big Brother Africa participant and publicist, married late rap musician Jabulani Tsambo, better known as HHP, in 2016. Unfortunately, HHP committed suicide in 2018. He had been diagnosed with depression, according to reports.
After HHP's death, his family announced that Lerato was not their daughter-in-law, claiming that the marriage was not legally recognized because not all customary rites had been completed by the time HHP died.
Lerato sued the Tsambo family in court, and both the High Court and the Supreme Court declared her Tsambo's widow.
4. Ayanda Ncwane.
Sfiso Ncwane, a talented gospel artist, married model and actress Ayanda Ncwane. Sifiso and Ayanda married in 2002, and their marriage lasted until Sifiso died of kidney disease in 2016, leaving Ayanda widowed.
5. Kayise Ngqula.
Kayise Ngqula, the actress and television personality best known for hosting Mzansi Magic's Our Perfect Wedding, married Zimbabwean Farai Sibanda in 2018. In 2019, only two months before the couple's first anniversary, they were engaged in a horrific vehicle accident, and Sibanda died as a result of his injuries. The couple only had one child throughout their brief union.
In this time of loneliness, may God comfort and strengthen them, Amen.
