CA­SU­AL­TIES OF THE MU­SIC IN­DUS­TRY’S SPOT­LIGHT

True Love - - Relationships -

Some­times is­sues that the in­dus­try brings – lack of per­sonal space, jeal­ousy and cre­ative dif­fer­ences – end a re­la­tion­ship, even if both stars re­main suc­cess­ful. Stoan Seete and Than­diswa Mazwai of Bongo Maf­fin fame had a short-lived fling re­sult­ing in a daugh­ter, who’s now 17. “When the me­dia got hold of the fact that Than­diswa was preg­nant with my child, they just came down on us like a ton of bricks. It was just too much,” he says.

Singers Brian Themba and Lungi Naidoo’s re­la­tion­ship didn’t end well even af­ter they col­lab­o­rated on their Lim­it­less sin­gle. “We’ve hap­pily con­quered that bridge” she says. Lau­ryn Hill’s tu­mul­tuous re­la­tion­ships with for­mer Fugees band­mate Wy­clef Jean, and fa­ther of her five chil­dren Ro­han Mar­ley, have played out pub­licly, with Jean writ­ing a tell-all book re­veal­ing the group split as a re­sult of his jeal­ousy over her re­la­tion­ship with Mar­ley.
