Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Bon­gani Ndlovu Show­biz Cor­re­spon­dent

LAST year’s StarBrite win­ner — Novuyo Sea­girl Dube - gave birth to a baby boy at Mpilo Cen­tral Hospi­tal in Bu­l­awayo on Mon­day. Her man­ager, Michelle Madau, said the afro-pop mu­si­cian, who gave birth to her first child through a cae­sarean op­er­a­tion, was ex­pected out of hospi­tal next week.

“Sea­girl and her son are do­ing well and we’re so ex­cited. I don’t know the sur­name of the fa­ther but she has named the baby Than­dol­wethu, which means our love,” said Madau.

She said Than­dol­wethu’s fa­ther (who she claimed not to know) is per­ma­nently resident in the United King­dom and could not make it to Zim­babwe when the baby was born.

“Other than the fa­ther of the baby, Sea­girl is be­ing sup­ported by her mother and band mem­bers who in­clude her twin sis­ter, Ntombiy­ol­wan­dle Dube.” Madau said she could not wait for Sea­girl to re­cover. “I want her back on stage and also in stu­dio. With the new baby, this might be a chal­lenge, but I know she’s a strong per­son who’ll soon bounce back on the show­biz scene.”

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