HIP HOP star, Kwesta, is rumoured to be off the market.

This comes after it emerged that the Ngud’ hitmaker will be performing a traditional ritual known as Umembeso for his baby mama and girlfriend of seven years, Yolanda Mvelase.

Umembeso is allegedly expected to take place on 8 March.

The rapper, whose real name is Mfundo Vilakazi, is said to be very eager for the ceremony, which is seen as a stepping stone to marrying his long-time girlfriend.

A source told Sunday Sun: “They enjoy each other’s company and nothing means more to Kwesta than being a proud family man.

“He has proven time and time again that he’s a responsible dad.

“He loves his daughter, Khai, and Yolanda too. You can even see the way he blushes every time he’s asked about his relationship or when he talks about them.”

Another source said the Mvelases, who are based in Westville outside Durban, in KZN, are excited about the event.

“Yolanda’s dad is so excited. He told one of his friends he can’t wait for “Ngud” (referring to Kwesta) to make it official.

“When Kwesta is off, he spends most of his time in Durban to be with his girlfriend and daughter.

“When he’s not with Yolanda and Khai, he visits his old friend, Zakwe.

“We can’t wait to go there and have a good time, since we’ve already received our invites,” the second source said.

Yolanda’s dad, Vusi Mvelase, said: “I don’t want to get involved in children’s business. Speak to those who are involved first, then call me afterwards.”

Kwesta was not available for comment, but his manager, Leroy Khoza, promised to respond within 10 minutes but failed to do so.

Yolanda could not be reached for comment.
