AfroSoul lead singer and actress, Thandeka ‘MaZulu’ Zulu is expecting her first child with fellow band member and founder of AfroSoul, Sabelo ‘Muji’ Ngema! Plus they have confirm that they are engaged.

“We are expecting a baby boy or girl in the middle of the year, it is exciting news that we have been keeping it a secret for a while now but can no longer keep it that way because it’s soon going to be very obvious,” says an enthusiastic Thandeka Zulu.

The couple, who have not confirmed whether they will be having a boy or girl, started the lobola negotiations in 2016 and recently completed the entire process last year, in 2017.

“Our relationship has been somewhat of a mystery over the year or two, and we can officially say that we are soon to be engaged and will soon be getting married in the coming year.” says Sabelo Ngema.


Whilst awaiting the arrival of their first child, both Thandeka and Sabelo have not slowed down their busy lives in music, with their band AfroSoul, soon to release their fourth studio album in the first half of 2018, as a follow up to the single ‘iNkomo Yami’ released in 2017.


Apart from her music, Thandeka used to also act on Uzalo. She played the role of Nombuso on the show.

Congratulations to the lovely couple on their engagement and their bundle of joy who is on the way.
