Ex-Wife Furious After Lebo M Changes Dead Son’s Tombstone To Include Second Wife’s Son

Producer Lebo M has been accused of changing his dead son’s tombstone so that he could include his second wife’s son. Ironically, the Lion King producer whose full name is Lebohang Morake has since separated from his second wife, Angela.

These stunning allegations were made by Lebo M’s ex-wife Nandi Ndlovu. A hurt and furious Nandi accused her former husband of scrapping her name from their dead son’s tombstone epitaph and replaced it with the son of his second wife Angela.

Nandi was referring to the couple’s son who drowned in a swimming pool at their Randburg home about two decades ago. He was buried a the Fourways cemetery.

In an interview with the Sunday World, Nandi said,

“My name was there and we unveiled it after the funeral. The tombstone had my son’s favourite poem and read as follows: ‘Twinkle, twinkle little star, Oh how I wonder how you are wherever you are. Even though your light shone the shortest, it sure was the brightest. Love you always, Your mom’,”

The epitaph was changed to read as follows: “Love from your dad, sisters and brothers.

Nandi said: “Lebo has only one son, not sons. He included Angela’s son, I guess, to please her. Imagine going to your son’s graveyard to lay flowers and you get there [and] your name and the tombstone that you picked is removed and replaced with the new wife’s family.”

Nandi who is based in the United States said that she made the unwelcome discovery when she went to lay flowers at the grave after coming back home.

“I live in the US and every time I visit SA I’d go and lay flowers or toys by his tombstone. I went there to visit my late son one day and found that his tombstone had been removed.

“Like that was not enough, instead he put Angela’s family on my son’s tombstone. Then a few months later he and Angela were divorced but her family was still on my son’s tombstone.”

Nandi went on to say that Lebo M never bothered to consult before changing the tombstone of their son.

“I was not informed, nor invited. My Ndlovu family was not invited and I was not there when it was installed.

“I just heard from some of our mutual friends that they told him what he was doing was wrong.

“Until today, he hasn’t said a word about it. One of his relatives told me that he put a padlock at our son’s graveyard. I’m not sure if I now need to call him for permission to get the keys to go and visit my son’s grave.”

Lebo M refused to comment on the matter.
