Nigerians react to the heartbreaking news of South African singer’s divorce after 15 years of marriage.
South African musician and member of one of the biggest music teams, Mafikizolo Nhlanla Nciza, has announced split from her husband, TK Nciza, after 15 years of marriage.
The singer's husband is a well-known music producer in South Africa.
The couple, who have been married for over 15 years, have now decided to go their separate ways for reasons best known to them.
In a lengthy Instagram post, which featured snaps of Nhlanhla and her soon-to-be ex-husband TK, whose full name is Thembinkosi, Nhlanhla thanked him for the "support" they had "given each other over the years" while raising their children.
"We shall remain on good terms and continue our endeavour to be great and exemplary parents to our children," the 41-year-old captioned her post.
"We appreciate the support we've received from family and friends. At this stage we would like to appeal for privacy, particularly for the sake of our children."
The pair, who have three sons together, haven’t disclosed the reasons behind their "tough but amicable decision" to bring their union to an end.
Nigerians have reacted to the break up news from the "Kona" musician. Most feel this is the new way to end marriages in the entertainment industry to avoid unnecessary questions from the public, especially if the other partner has proceeded to a new relationship.
Others feel the singer should have kept the divorce away from the public in order to get the privacy she so much longs for and to protect her children from media backlash.
While some others have applauded the singer for maturely and amicably ending her relationship with her soon-to-be ex-husband and compared it to divorce in Nigeria, especially amongst celebrities, which is quite messy and anger-filled.
Nevertheless, Nigerians have taken out time to appreciate the singer for her timeless songs and exquisite fashion sense, especially because she is a mother of three boys.
