Singer Edith Masakona and her husband, Obedience, celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary in style

Songbird Edith Masakona has collaborated with well-known crowd-pleasers such as Selaelo Selota, Sello Chicco Twala and Kelly Khumalo

She’s also worked on a play with Muvhango creator Duma Ndlovu. And she’s plied her trade in shows such as The Lion King when she lived and worked in Europe, North America and Asia.

But it was when she got married that she really lucked out, finding a husband who dotes on her every moment that they’re together.

Edith’s husband, Obedience Masakona, recently hosted a bash to mark his and Edith’s fourth anniversary. To honour their vows, he teamed up with Judith Mudau, Edith’s twin sister and backing vocalist for former gospel star Sfiso Ncwane.

The black-tie event took place at Pigalle Restaurant in Bedfordview, Johannesburg, and the guest list was full of celebrities including gospel crooner Takie Ndou, songbird-cum-businesswoman Rabe Nevhutalu and Pastor Thivha Lidzhade of Bethesda Bible Church, to name a few.

“It takes two willing people to make a marriage work,” Edith said. “Our love story gets more beautiful and stronger by the day. I’m blessed.” Edith’s music career is on the rise, too.

Two months ago, she won an Independent National Gospel Music Award (Ingoma) for Best CD Sleeve for her debut album, Na Zwothe Zwine Ndavha.

And she recently had a sell-out performance at the popular Winnie’s Soul & Jazz Restaurant in Johannesburg.

DRUM was invited – and trust us, it was a great concert.
