Controversial kwaito artist and TV presenter Bonginkosi "Zola 7" Dlamini has been hiding a big secret for the past seven years.

Sunday World learned this week that the artist has allegedly been married to a Soweto woman for almost 10 years but has never lived with her in the same house.

Zola (38) has been traditionally married to Sibongile Nkabinde from Klipspruit in Soweto, and they have two daughters - aged seven and two - together. They are expecting a third child.
