He is married to Nandi Madida, formerly known as Nandi Mngoma. She is a South African Media personality, and has been in the industry way before she got married. Nandi is also a singer, and is well known for a hit song that she did with K.O “gangster love”.
The couple has two kids together, a boy and a girl. They recently trended for changing their marriage contract, which most people confused for a divorce. The two are still happily married, and they see to be more in love with each other.
During an interview with MacG on his podcast, when he was asked what he loves/likes about his wife. He said he loves the fact that she’s selfless, and she stands her ground. Zakes said Nandi is only found in Platforms that she wants to be in. He said she doesn’t mind losing money if the thing that she’s being paid for doesn’t represent Africanism or who she is. He said she can leave a gig that is paying, and go do something for free just because it doesn’t represent who she is.
This means she can never be an ambassador, or the face of something that doesn’t represent her. She doesn’t do things just for money. This is something that most people were not aware of when it comes to Nandi.
