Congratulatory messages are in order for veteran actor Sello Maake ka-Ncube, who has shared the news that he asked for his partner Pearl Mbewe’s hand in marriage and she said “yes”. Taking to his different social media accounts, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, Sello revealed that he is now engaged to the love of his life. “She said yes! Meet my wife Pearl Mbewe,” an overjoyed Sello shared.
The actor said he had made peace with being a bachelor after his last marriage failed but love wouldn’t let him. “I made her the one and I never longed to find anyone any more. I had made peace with being single but now I know I’m ready to tell my story. Being happy is the way and she holds her own,” Sello wrote.
Pearl is a well-known brand specialist and has worked with people like Sakhumzi Makhubela and gospel singer Dr Winnie Mashaba. Posting on her Facebook page, Pearl confirmed the engagement to be married to Sello. “My person this one! I thank God daily for you @SelloMKN #OpenUpWithSello #40YearsIntheindustry #MrandMrs MaakeKa-Ncube,” she wrote.
Sello married Palesa Mboweni in 2013 but their marriage fell out after a few months. Speaking to Sunday World earlier this year, a relative who did not want to be named opened up about Sello’s new relationship, saying the actor is head over heels in love, and content with the love of his life. This is the first time The Queen actor has felt free to share his love story with the public. #ladi_jaja?
