The saying that the only constant thing in life is change might have held true for the biggest decision of Zodwa Wabantu’s life which she made recently.
The sultry entertainer had in the past assured everyone who cared to listen that she was never going to walk down the aisle.
However, in a complete 360 against her previous assertions, she did the honours of proposing to her bae, Ntobeko Linda with a R61, 000 engagement ring recently.
Well, Zodwa Wabantu whose real name is Zodwa Rebecca Libram insists she meant every bit of her claims of not being the ‘marriage type’ in the past; only that a few factors might have changed her mind now.
In a chat with TshisaLIVE, the pant-skipping entertainer says her outlook and position might have changed now because money has simply given her more options.
“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 Wabantu would go on to describe some of the reasons and factors which made her decide not to get married in the first place, but confirms she has been able to change a lot of those having achieved more financial success in recent times.
“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 continued.
Finally, Zodwa Wabantu says the stage proposal and engagement ring were not stunts to boost her clout and fame as she insists she is just living her best life.
