JOHANNESBURG – After two years of marriage, gospel singer Khaya Mthethwa and wife Ntando have decided to divorce.

The couple married in February 2017 in a beautiful traditional wedding in Mpumalanga and have a 10-month-old baby boy together.

Ntando broke the news on Tuesday through a statement on her Instagram account, saying she has returned to her home province of Mpumalanga with her son. Despite this, the former Miss South Africa said her and Khaya would continue to co-parent and he would have “unrestricted access” to their son.

She said they had called a family meeting at the weekend and informed them of their mutual decision to amicably file for divorce.

"In the last few days, my husband and I have had in-depth discussions about our marriage and our young family challenges. On Sunday, we met my in-laws and informed them of our mutual decision for us to amicably file for divorce.

"I also informed my mother and the rest of my Kunene family who were disappointed with the divorce decision but appreciated the fact that I represented them well at the Mthethwas," the statement read.
