Singer/Songwriter and TV presenter Nandi Madida has given birth, according to Destiny magazine. Madida is featured on the cover of the magazine's December 2016 issue. In August, Madida who is married to musician Zakes Bantwini (Zakhele Madida), revealed her pregnancy on the runway at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week where she debuted her first collection from her fashion label Colour in collaboration with designer Inga Madyiba. Madida walked in the show and swung the drapes of her dress back to reveal her baby bump.
In an earlier interview with Destiny magazine, Madida said she was thrilled to be having her baby with the love of her life: "Honestly, it's like a dream come true and also to have a child with someone you really love... My husband is amazing" she told the magazine.
Just this weekend, Madida and close friends joked about her going in to labour at her baby shower - hosted by long-time friend Minnie Dlamini - by posting a mannequin challenge video of Madida's water breaking.
The surprise baby shower was attended by close friends and family at the Marion on Nicol hotel in Johannesburg. Madida took to Instagram to thank everyone for sharing the afternoon with her, as well as her husband and Dlamini for organising the event. Amongst the guests were her day ones Noni Gasa, Nomachule (Norma) Mngoma - wife of Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba - and Zakithi Methembu.
Madida is currently on maternity from her presenting jobs on "Coke Studio" and BET's lifestyle show, "A-List", which she co-hosts with Ayanda Thabethe, and Amanda du Pont has stepped in to take her place on "A-List".Suggest a correction
