They were a perfect pair, so it seemed. On social media, their relationship was like a fairytale. Holidays to Cape Town, matching outfits and she called him ‘Xhosa king.’
They even called themselves #TakkienoSlamba (Sneakers and jacket) because he paints portraits on denim jackets for a living and her hobby is to paint and sell sneakers.
But the love affair between painter Andile Leeroy Cana nd Zoleka Mandela has come to an end. The East London-born artist is sad about the breakup.
“I’m devastated to say the least. But, what can I say?” he says. Not giving too much details of what led to the breakup, he says, All good things come to an end.”
“I still love her and hope we reunite soon.” Andile did not wish t comment on whether or not he is the father of Zoleka’s unborn child.
“I still love and respect her. I don’t wish to speak about that. I am a very private person, even this is not right,” he say before hanging up the call.
Zoleka has since moved into a new home wit her children and is living her best life.
The author and mom recently had her Instagram timeline in stitches when she dished the dirt on dating “broke” men, asking why she has to constantly take care of them?
“There are two things my therapist insinuates about me that I can’t say are not true — 1. I’ll probably be in therapy for the rest of my life and 2. In relationships, I’m usually the common denominator,” she says.
“What must happen if I continuously date men who never make more money than I do and who I’m always taking care of? Why can’t they do the synchronised swimming, car pooling and crocheting if I’m paying for everything?” she asked.
Looking back to a post 11 years, she said her biggest problem was now dating broke men.
“Relationships with broke men that can’t take care of me financially and they’re expensive penises (that make my vagina make poor life decisions for me that result in parting with so much money) are my biggest problem. Just show me the money! Why does Zoleka Mandela think she deserves the very little the men she often chooses offer her? Why?”
Zoleka revealed that she is pregnant with her sixth child, and laughed about throwing her own baby shower just to afford things.
“I should probably start planning a baby shower, although I despise those so very much. The speeches, the games, the spotlight, the surprises, the opening of gifts in front of everyone: It’s all just gross, man! I need the gifts though, so I don’t have to buy everything else myself. According to my baby budget: things, as per usual, are going to be even more expensive as a single parent but certainly manageable!”
