Starbrite win­ner Novuyo preg­nant

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Nkosile­sisa Ncube Show­biz Re­porter

LAST year’s Starbrite win­ner — Novuyo Sea­gal Dube has not been in the lime­light since her vic­tory as she is preg­nant.

Through her man­ager — Michelle Madau - Dube said she has been nurs­ing a grow­ing baby bump for the past few months.

“Novuyo and her part­ner of two years are ex­pect­ing a bun­dle of joy,” said Madau as she re­vealed that Dube wears a prom­ise ring which she was given by the father of her un­born child as a prom­ise of loy­alty and sup­port.

“When the right time comes, their com­mit­ment will be made of­fi­cial.”

Although Dube’s part­ner is per­ma­nently res­i­dent in the United King­dom, Madau said par­ent­ing would not be a prob­lem for Dube since her part­ner comes home reg­u­larly. Moreso, Dube will re­ceive help and sup­port from her mother and band mem­bers who in­clude her twin sis­ter, Ntombiy­ol­wan­dle Dube.

“This is the first baby in the band and we’re ex­cited for Novuyo. We wish her the best and will help and sup­port her the best way we can. Novuyo’s mother is also very ex­cited about the baby.”

De­spite be­ing preg­nant, Dube has been work­ing hard, com­pos­ing songs. She hopes to bounce back onto the show­biz scene once her child is born.

Her ma­ter­nity leave will not af­fect her band, ac­cord­ing to Madau, who says they have found a strong vo­cal­ist to stand in for Dube while she nurses her baby.

Apart from win­ning Starbrite in 2015, Dube is the lead vo­cal­ist for One Stand. She has worked with San­dra Nde­bele’s In­tombi Zomqan­gala, Umoja CFC, BaShupi and other renowned per­form­ers.
