POP­U­LARLY known for pre­sent­ing Mzansi Magic’s Our Per­fect Wed­ding (OPW), Them­bisa Mdoda (35) is get­ting mar­ried to a man she met on the show. But a Twit­ter fol­lower up­set Them­bisa when he re­minded her not to cheat again. This comes af­ter she pre­vi­ously claimed her for­mer ex-hus­band, ac­tor Athandwa Kani, was the fa­ther of her twin boys, but pa­ter­nity tests re­vealed other­wise.


For months, the for­mer OPW pre­sen­ter has been spot­ted wear­ing a ring on her ring fin­ger, which has a blue rock.

Every­one as­sumed she is en­gaged as she re­vealed no in­for­ma­tion ex­cept that she is happy. The star, who is usu­ally pri­vate about her af­fairs, has now shared on so­cial me­dia about get­ting mar­ried and how ex­cited she is about it.

The bride-to-be re­cently tweeted that she is spend­ing her day re­lax­ing and writing her vows.


At last year's View­ers' Choice Awards, Them­bisa won the Favourite TV Pre­sen­ter Award.

In her ac­cep­tance speech, she spoke about her ex­pe­ri­ence on OPW, say­ing, “Thank you to the love of my life, whom I met on the show. Thank you baby.”

She later spoke to a daily news­pa­per and said, “It's the most cliché thing you will ever hear. I found love on Our Per­fect Wed­ding. We are happy and plan­ning a fu­ture to­gether. It's a beau­ti­ful thing. He's a great guy. For me to find some­one in the space that I work in and whom I to­tally fell in love with is amaz­ing.”

Last year, Them­bisa teas­ingly posted a pic­ture of her­self kiss­ing a man who had his back to the cam­era. The only thing that peo­ple could no­tice about the man was his thick long dread­locks.


Them­bisa opened up dur­ing a ra­dio show about why she left OPW.

In the in­ter­view, the ac­tress said she is grate­ful for what the show did for her as an artist.

She added that it was time for some­one else to take over the show.

“When we had ne­go­ti­a­tions I felt I needed to go. As some­one who stud­ied drama and ap­pre­ci­ate the work I do, I am not go­ing to lie, I didn’t feel ap­pre­ci­ated,” she said.

She has now moved on to big­ger things. She is cur­rently co-pre­sent­ing a Satur­day break­fast show on Metro FM with Mo G. She also stars on the drama se­ries Un­mar­ried on 1Magic.

When Move! con­tacted Them­bisa, she was un­able to talk and asked that we email her man­ager the ques­tions.

The man­ager later re­sponded and said they are not in­ter­ested in an­swer­ing any ques­tions for the pub­li­ca­tion.
