… ‘we dated for 13 months’
Trust Khosa, Assistant News Editor
Jah Prayzah’s most trusted lieutenant Keen Mushapaidze is over the moon after quitting bachelorhood.
The 30-year-old, who over the weekend paid lobola for his celebrity better half Panashe Peters, told H-Metro Entertainment & Lifestyle he was ready to start a family with his new wife.
Although he could not be drawn to reveal the number of “cows” he paid to get the 24-year-old model turned multi-media practitioner’s hand in marriage, Keen said both families had blessed their union.
“We dated for the past 13 months and decided to pay lobola over the weekend.
“After paying lobola, we were then introduced to the in-laws who welcomed us,” he said.
The affable manager has vowed to work hard for his new wife as they begin a new chapter together.
“It feels good getting married since it shows that I am growing up which comes up with more responsibilities.
“It will be tough since we are always travelling but I am glad that I have married someone who understands the nature of my job.
“She is still a student at UZ doing her four year and she was on recently on attachment,” he said.
Keen, who is the eldest son in their family of three boys, said his parents were equally ecstatic after his marriage.
“I come from a family of three boys and the news of Panashe joining us makes her the only ‘girl child’ at the moment.
“My parents are so excited that they now have a daughter-in-law they had waited for so long and they have since blessed this marriage,” he said.
In another interview, Panashe could not hide her elation describing Keen as a loving husband and soul.
“I’m happy to be part of Keen’s life after he paid lobola last weekend.
“He is someone that I understand better, which has led us to this point.
“I will always be there for him and hope to support him as my husband,” she said.
Meanwhile, Keen and Panashe are set to tie the note later this year, according to insiders.
