Popular afro soul song bird Victoria Mhone, a.k.a Wezi and folk singer Mumba Yachi has split a year after going public about their relationship.
Rumours of the breakup have been circulating on the local entertainment scene but Mumba Yachi took to social media to confirm the break up in an emotional post on his Facebook page.
“Every Era has got an END. It is that time in our-story we have to take a bow and continue with our separate ways. I am proud of knowing you and the ART we produced together. Those who insulted me because I was with you, can now have their champagne. Like PRINCE I can say;” I never meant to cause you any sorrow…baby I can never steal you from another” … I will always respect you Wezi. God bless you. UMUNG’O.”
And Wezi responded by wishing Mumba long life.
Posting on her Facebook page hours after Mumba had broken the news, the soulful singer said, “Gravity happened. Life at its full display, the downward pull… what goes up must surely come down.”
She added, “As the haters celebrate and bloggers start to blog. The audience that demanded their truth, there you have it. I hope it’s everything you wanted & so much more. Remember that the end of an error is the beginning of a new one. We will always be the thieves that stole from each other, Umungo. Long live the king Mumba Yachi.”
Rumours surfaced early this year that Wezi was cheating on Mumba with her Producer Zondiwe Kekero Mutanula.
It is reported that Kekero who is the original composer of the famous track ‘Anajaila’ by Tiye-P which was remade by a three some of Zambian musicians including Wezi has been hitting on Wezi in the absence of Mumba.
In March 2016, Wezi admitted that Mumba Yachi is 100 per cent her soul mate.
She said she will not argue but agree openly that she is in a stable relationship with the music star and that he is her soul mate.
Wezi was responding to comments that had been pouring in on social media that the two make an unattractive couple.
Mumba had pronounced his love for Wezi on International Women’s day in 2016 as a way of appreciating his woman, but it seemed not to have worked for the music star.
One Facebook blogger, Brian Ngoma wrote that the couple was the real definition of ‘ugly’.
In response to this comment, Wezi said “if we are a real definition of ugly to some people, then my mind is set for him because his heart is beautiful, which is more important to me.”
She explained that originally, she did not want to put tags on her relationship but this is blowing out of proportion because she is an artiste and dating a fellow artiste.
The talented soulful singer, who hit the music scene with her incredible amazing voice, said regardless of the current situation about her relationship with Mumba, she still loves him and is going ahead with the relationship.
“I do not believe that am at the stage where am dating for fun, if am in a relationship then it means am ready to see it all the way,” she said.
She said she could not be bruised easily and that the comments would not in any way change things for her.
“The way I grew up in Ndola I can assure you that few things make me cry and this one is not special to change me now,” she said.
