Gogo Skhotheni, a well-known figure from Moja Love’s “Dlozi Lam” and Mzansi Magic’s “iZangoma Zodumo,” has candidly shared her thoughts on polyandrous marriage. In a recent interview on “Nkululeko n Cultr,” she shed light on her unconventional relationship choice.
Gogo Skhotheni’s Stance on Polyandry
Gogo Skhotheni, whose real name is Tumi Motsoeneng, revealed that she is open to the idea of a polyandrous marriage but with one significant condition – her husband’s consent. This revelation sparked a social media frenzy as she disclosed that she had embraced a second spouse based on guidance from her ancestors.
An Unconventional Desire
In her interview, Gogo Skhotheni shared her perspective on this unique arrangement. She expressed her genuine interest in having multiple partners but clarified that her husband was not on board with the idea.
“It was a fun experience. If my husband would allow me to have a second husband, I think I would. It was amusing to see his reaction, as we rarely argue about our relationship. Our disagreements usually revolve around more serious matters. So, witnessing his reaction when I broached the topic of a second husband was intriguing,” she admitted.
Gogo Skhotheni acknowledged that while she found the idea appealing, there was currently no second husband in the picture.
The reality show audience witnessed Gogo Skhotheni’s husband and mother expressing their reservations about her unconventional choice. Despite the doubts and concerns, Gogo Skhotheni stood her ground.
“I understand that my mother felt embarrassed in her role as my mother. She has yet to fully accept it. I’ve never disrespected her in any way, so I believe she’ll come to understand with time,” she shared.
Adapting to this new dynamic in her relationship proved to be challenging, especially since she had never encountered a sangoma pursuing polyandry before.
“Nothing like this has ever happened before. I’ve also never seen a sangoma go through it, so it’s new to me as well. However, I’m embracing it, despite the difficulties, and learning something new every day,” Gogo Skhotheni reflected.
Gogo Skhotheni’s story may not be conventional, and she acknowledges the rareness of her situation. Despite the criticisms and disapproval she has faced on social media, she remains eager to face the challenges that come with her unconventional choice.
In a world where relationships take many forms, Gogo Skhotheni’s journey into polyandry stands as a testament to the diversity of human connections and the lengths to which individuals will go to follow their hearts and beliefs.
