Dumi has built this house for his parents to follow tradition so as to stop women going to his rural home claiming to he his God chosen wives.

Ever since award-winning gospel musician Dumi Mkokstad got married to his wife Dr Ziphozenkosi Nzimande (née Mthembu), women have been showing up on his father’s doorstep in Mt Ayliff, Eastern Cape, claiming they are his wives.

This is according to the Mbize hitmaker’s father, Falithenjwa Nzimande.

“Ever since he got married, we’ve been getting unexpected guests, and all of them claim to be Dumi’s wives or fiancés,” Nzimande said.

Mkokstad – real name Mdumiseni Nzimande – married Dr Ziphozenkosi in June 2019. The pair share two children; a daughter born in 2022 and a son born in September this year.

The singer’s father says the first woman – who claimed to be from Sandton in Johannesburg – told him that she received a prophecy from her bishop that she was Mkokstad’s chosen wife. The woman said that artist is married to the wrong woman and that she is the right person for him.
