SELMOR : THIS STILL SHOCKS ME
Selmor Mtukudzi says her dad was happy to see her tie the knot with Tendai Manatsa.
A local paper once claimed at the time that Selmor had said that her father had failed to support her fledgling career. Last year, she revealed again that this was an incident that she regarded as one of her regrets in life.
“The fallout with our dad happened in 2012 when a private conversation I had with someone I considered a friend was leaked to the public.
“I was discussing an article that was written about me which said ‘my career wasn’t going anywhere, I should just give up.’
“This was one of many similar articles that were written about me then. I was really sad and I spoke to this person via our inboxes on Facebook and he copied everything we discussed and put it on his timeline. Imagine my shock,” she told Sunday News
“We take control of what we post on social media and we try by all means to avoid being in the newspapers for the wrong reasons. Some things we cannot avoid being in the public but we feel we have been lucky that that hasn’t happened too often,” she said.
As performers that make their bread and butter in front of excited crowds, some who would be intoxicated, it might be hard for some to see how the two have avoided the entrapment of night life over the years. However, according to Selmor, the two had always felt secure around each other.
“We are always protective of each other. When in public I like to know that my hubby has my back and that I’ve got his. There hasn’t been a scenario where I needed to step in and I’m grateful that it’s been that way,” she said.
As parents, performing at night presents other problems. Although they live their life on the road, Selmor said they tried to spend as much time with their three children as they could.
“We don’t have a formula but we just make sure that when we get time at home with the kids we maximise that time, we try to be as present as possible,” she said.
