3 Successful Celebrity Marriages In Mzansi
Kgomotso and Calvin Christopher
Award-winning actress Kgomotso Christopher and her husband Calvin Christopher have been happily married for 16 years this year and they’re still going strong.
The actress took to social media last year and posted a heartfelt message and video for her hubby Calvin with a caption: “15 Years on…I still choose “UK’hamba Nawe Bhuti”…our wedding song played by sheer coincidence at that moment, at my birthday soiree!
If life were a song, a dance, I would consistently choose you as my dance partner…to stumble through the steps (given that I have two left feet…well, so do you), to falter, to get up and dance the dance of life.”
Kgomotso who currently plays the role of Dineo Price on Mnet’s The Legacy got a SAFTA award for her devious role of Yvonne Langa on Scandal. She’s also been on Isidingo as Katlego Sibeko and many more…
