Speaking to Drum Magazine Mshoza explained that there may be a lot of miscommunication about her relationship with her mother-in-law – MaKhoza, but she insists that she has nothing but respect for the lady.
“Mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law often don’t get along – it’s a universal thing. But she and I have never argued or exchanged words.”
The kwaito star did admit that she and MaKhoza aren’t always on the same page when it comes to certain things but respects the woman.
“I respect the old lady. She gave birth to the man of my dreams,” she tells the publication.
However, MaKhoza sings a different tune and makes it clear that she does not like Mshoza. Amongst the many things she’s said about her son’s celebrity wife, MaKhoza mentions that Mshoza talks too much, and rubbed her off the wrong way when Mshoza passed a comment about MaKhoza’s daughter’s unemployed situation.
“I like smiling and laughing and uMakoti (Mshoza) talks too much..I don’t want to hurt anyone, I know myself – I can be very cruel when given the chance. Makoti must not test me.”
It is also reported that MaKhoza has never liked Mshoza as she feels that all that Mshoza is doing is chowing her son’s money.
However, Mshoza maintains that she is not the typical rural wife and does things a little different.
“I’m an artist, I grew up in Soweto. I wear wigs and weaves, I have long nails and my husband loves me the way I am.”
Mshoza says she’s tried to compromise with MaKhoza but it does not seem like she’s winning.
“I try to compromise with my in-laws and respect our culture as much as possible but that’s still an issue with her. I try to please her but I don’t know what to do anymore.”
