Home Celebs US $15k LOBOLA FOR MAI TT




COMEDIENNE and musician Mai TT’s parents received lobola at their Budiriro house yesterday.

Mai TT, real name Felistas Murata, formally introduced her husband Tinashe Maphosa to her family according to custom.

Tinashe paid US$15 000 cash, clothes worth US$1 500 and groceries worth over US$1000.

He promised to clear the rusambo which was pegged at US$18 000.

Mai TT’s mother, Esther Murata, and her sisters then invited Tinashe to the dance floor and a photo shoot.

“Rugwaro rwanga rwakanyorwa rwekutukwa nekuda kwaFelistas nhasi Mwari arudzima,” said Mai Murata.

“Felistas has today wiped my tears.

“I have been laughed at, called names and mocked because of Felistas, but today she has revived my spirit.

“She has healed my bones, may goodness and mercy continue to be upon her.

“Thank you Tinashe for loving my daughter, thank you for the lobola.

“Wandipfekedza, wandinyaradza uye wandidadisa wakudza dzinza,” said Mai Murata.

Mai TT’s father and church elder, Edward Murata, told H-Metro he thought his daughter was joking when she gave them the date for the lobola ceremony.

“To be honest with you, I just learnt about Mai TT’s wedding on social media like any of her fans,” said Elder Murata.

“When she told us about payment of lobola, we were not convinced. Ndakatotya kuudza dzimwe hama nezvemarooro nekuti takafunga kuti atanga drama.

“I believed her when two kombis arrived and I could not phone all the family members.

“Felistas has done us proud, she has taken us to another level.

“I don’t have much to say, but to welcome my son-in-law Tinashe and his family for respecting us,” said Elder Murata.

Murata narrated how Mai TT grew up in a family of five children, attending AFM church, where he is an elder.

Mai TT invited family members to an afterparty at her house.

Prophet Passion Java, musicians Fungisai Zvakavapano, Felly Nandi, Diana Samkange and Mathias Mhere graced the after-party.

Tinashe said the payment of lobola had given him an opportunity to take Mai TT to the United States of America.

“I am happy that I have paid lobola according to custom,” said Tinashe.

“I can’t wait to take my wife to USA since I have done what is needed according to marriage custom.”
