Skolopad is on cloud nine after her boyfriend of six months popped the question and unlike most people the socialite welcomes being in a polygamous relationship.
She told TshisaLIVE that the engagement was unexpected but welcomed surprise.
“Like I said‚ he saw me as Nonhlanhla not as Skolopad. In fact‚ he was surprised when he eventually found out about Skolopad but he said he loved my personality and was not willing to let me go. I really haven’t said much about our love because I was afraid I would ruin it if I announced it.
“I feel like I’m really happy and the less people know the more happiness I’ll have but of course I also won’t hide my happiness. I love that he’s a businessman and not in the entertainment space‚ it gives me peace of mind.”
The entertainer said that she believes her previous relationships didn’t work because men fell in love with a “temporary” Skolopad and not Nonhlanhla Qwabe.
“He was so surprised when he finally realised he asked me‚ ‘Hao? Are you a singer?’ I said yes I am but that’s not all that I am’. I enjoy his company and he enjoys mine. The ring I am wearing simply means he plans on paying lobola and properly adding me to his family. I am yet to meet the first wife but I’m sure we’ll get along and even if he wants to take number three‚ four and five‚ I’ll be okay. This is what I’ve always wanted.”
The mother of a teenage girl said she was confident that her daughter and hubby-to-be would get along and that he would be welcomed into the family.
“Being polygamous gives you peace‚ you don’t have to be giving all your time to your man because you know there are sisters to help you. You have time to the things you wanna do.”
While the entertainer is positively certain that her new married boyfriend will satisfy her in all aspects – sexually, emotionally and possibly financially, however, what worries us the most is the total number of times they have met. The total number of times you have bathed in the last 7 days is more than the number of times they have met, yet wedding plans are already at an advanced stage.
“He hasn’t met my daughter or my family, but I told my mother about him. The thing is we’ve only met up, like we’ve seen each other about six times. He plans on paying lobola soon and next year we’ll begin proper wedding plans,” said Skolopad.
“We’ve been dating for six months. And despite what people might think, I don’t think it’s too soon. In fact, I have been ready since May. We met in Pretoria and he fell in love with Nonhlanhla, not Skolopad, which made me very happy. I’m in love with him. He’s a Swati man and he’s married, so I am going to be wife number two. I’ve said before that I am willing to be a second wife, so it’s a dream come true.”
When asked if she’s met the first wife, Skolopad said no and her hubby-to-be also hasn’t been introduced to her family officially.
