The muso be­hind the Idibala dance craze, King Monada, is al­legedly faint­ing be­tween two women in his bed­room.

King Monada, real name Khutso Kgatla, has al­legedly found com­fort in the arms of a yel­low bone beauty Cyn­thia Nthe­batse Lion.

Lion, who works at the Greater Letaba mu­nic­i­pal­ity in Lim­popo, hails from Mod­jad­jiskloof, for­merly known as Dui­wel­skloof, in Bolobedu dis­trict. Monada has al­legedly in­tro­duced Lion to his wife Ler­ato Ra­mawela from Tick­y­line vil­lage near Lenyenye town.

Monada, 27, flaunted Ra­mawela on his Face­book page last year af­ter buy­ing her a grey VW Polo as a gift for be­ing a dot­ing wife and a car­ing mother.

News of Monada’s ap­par­ent polygamy came to the fore last week when he posted a selfie with Ra­mawela and Lion on his Face­book page with a cap­tion “King and Queens” with a love emoji.

The picture, which was taken at the Tza­neen Life­style Cross­ing, trig­gered happy wishes from his le­gions of fans.

In an­other selfie, the Oska bhora Moreki hit­maker is with both women in a car and a young boy be­lieved to be his son, with a cap­tion “fam­ily” ac­com­pa­nied by a love emoji.

Although Monada pa­raded Lion on his Face­book page, many did not know she was his sec­ond part­ner. His fans also didn’t know that Ra­mawela was in fact his first wife whom he met long be­fore his me­te­oric rise to fame in 2016.

Lion de­clined to com­ment. “I can’t com­ment on that mat­ter now be­cause it’s pri­vate and I’m at work. I will phone you back later,” she said.

But she didn’t call back, in­stead the in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed artist phoned Sun­day World and threw a tantrum.

“Why did you phone her? You were sup­posed to have phoned me first. I don’t want my pri­vate life to be in the news­pa­pers. What will you do if I do the same with your kids and wife?

“I’m the one who knows these peo­ple, I know what is hap­pen­ing. Why don’t you write about the R160,000 that I do­nated to a needy com­mu­nity in­stead of this story?” he asked an­grily.

Ra­mawela couldn’t be reached for com­ment as her phone was off at the time of go­ing to press.

Two in­de­pen­dent sources, one a mu­si­cian and the artist’s friend, and an­other who is Lion’s col­league, con­firmed the re­la­tion­ship and that Monada was har­vest­ing the for­bid­den fruits of both women.

The mu­si­cian, who is close to the artist, said Monada met Lion af­ter she broke up with an­other Kh­elobedu mu­sic artist whose name is known to Sun­day World.

“She has a child with DJ [name with­held]. Monada met her last year and they started dat­ing. The re­la­tion­ship was so se­ri­ous that he even lent her his lux­ury VW Golf with the reg­is­tra­tion num­ber writ­ten ‘Osk­ab­hora Moreki’ to drive around.”

The mu­si­cian al­leged Lion started vis­it­ing Monada’s home in Ga-Mok­goloboto where he in­tro­duced her to Ra­mawela.

Lion’s col­league, who didn’t want to be named, con­firmed that Lion was Monada’s sec­ond sig­nif­i­cant other.

“Yes, we work with her, she is King Monada’s woman,” she said.
