Ncebakazi Nkantsu and Musa Msomi

By Sino Majangaza
It was a joyous celebration for one member of South Africa’s most famous gospel choir, Joyous Celebration, when she tied the knot at the weekend.
Ncebakazi Nkantsu, of Mdantsane in Eastern Cape, married Musa Msomi at a ceremony held at Orient Beach in East London on Saturday.

Like any other bride, Nkantsu kept her guests waiting, but it was not in vain. She appeared on the other side of the beach, accompanied by her mother Nontuthuzelo and her eldest brother, Mziwethemba, while former group member Ntokozo Mbatha sang her popular song In the Shadow of Your Wings. Women ululated to welcome her, while some used their cellphones to takepictures as Nkantsu walked towards her groom.

Her morning gown was designed by Mthatha-born fashion designer Asanda Madyibi, who has designed garments for celebrities like Unathi Msengana and Minenhle Dlamini. “She (Asanda) showed me three dresses to choose from, but I did not really like them, and she designed another one and I loved it,” she said. The afternoon dress was designed by popular New York City designer Vera Wang.

“She is the same designer who designed the wedding dress for Kim Kardashian. It was just perfect,” she said. Nkantsu and Msomi go to the same church, Assemblies of God, and that is where they met. “I used to see him and I never thought he would be my husband one day.

I am a career-oriented woman and my focus at church was on God, and nothing else,” she said. The reception, which was held at the Burning Bush Ministries, turned into a mini gospel show when Joyous Celebration took to the stage. The bride joined in.

  5. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Msomi.

    Lovely wedding, your main dress is very pretty, very princess like. I also like the head peice it makes you look so innocent. Your hubby’s suit is spot on. Makoti I know less is more but if you wore subtle earings it would have completed your look.

    Would have loved to see the decor and cake as your wedding seems like it was classy. I take it you had no bridal party.

    Nonetheless wishing you and your hubby God’s abundant blessings.
