Still in love after 10 years

Whenever he is on stage worshipping, Andile KaMajola’s powerful voice often leaves many in awe of God’s presence. The star from Greytown in KwaZulu-Natal says he is no angel; he is just a servant of God who understands his calling. The 36-year-old tells Move! that he has made his fair share of mistakes, and does not want to dwell on them, but instead looks to God for help. He says where he lacks, his wife Ntokozo (35) makes up for it.

ALL ABOUT FAMILY

The Majolas have been married for 10 years and the couple recently welcomed a new addition to the family, a bouncing baby boy they named Phakade, who is just over a month old. The couple has two other children, Mpumelelo (10) and Senzelwe (4). Andile tells Move! that God has been good to his family and has given him the secret of how to put the spark back in his marriage.

INVESTING IN HIS WIFE

To strengthen their marriage, Andile says he has prioritised his wife, and this has deepened their bond. The founder of All Nations Cathedral International Church in Durban, says he used to trust people close to him regarding church and business matters, but many have failed him. He adds that he used to underestimate the power of his wife, however, he made a resolution at the beginning of this year to pay attention and support her. In the process, he discovered that she is the best overseer and administrator for his events and entertainment company, Elinda Productions, which is based in Durban.

“I decided to invest in my wife because God instructed me to do so. Recently I discovered the saying, behind every successful man there’s a strong woman. This proves to be true in my life. Our working relationship has rekindled our love for each other. “We are celebrating 10 years in marriage and I now know that I have found gold in her,” says the Ngindlala Indumiso hitmaker. Andile says spending more time with his family has taught him to focus on what matters and has helped him keep his image clean.

ON AVOIDING BAD PUBLICITY

Andile, who has been in the music industry for 16 years, says he knows that he is not immune to bad publicity, but it’s only by the grace of God that he is able to keep his reputation clean. “You cannot take people into the holy of holies if you don’t spend time with God. As a pastor and worshiper, I cannot be like everyone else if my intention is to change the world through music. It is in my quite times that I get to write sermons and lyrics,” says the Ebukhoneni Benkosi singer.

“I live a very quiet life and have no business posting my latest happenings on social media. I enjoy spending time alone and listening to my heart. When I am in my own space, I sit quietly and I am able to jot down my life and family’s plans. If I was found at every event or headline for the wrong reasons, it would mean I have made wrong choices and that I wasn’t where God wanted me to be. I am very careful about who I am with and when. I’ve realised that the enemy (devil) only comes to kill and destroy, especially in this industry,” concludes the gospel star.
