Even though the divorce of music promoter Prosper Mkwaiwa and actress Tina Jaxa is dragging

on, Prosper’s new wife Tina Dlangwana is making moves to finalise the deal.

She’s been using his surname because the singer says she can’t wait any longer, particularly

since Prosper’s already paid lobola.

But even though she may call herself Mkwaiwa, she still has to meet several traditional requirements. First, she has to change her name from Dlangwana to her father’s surname, Hlongwane.

Only then can she officially take her husband’s name. “My dad descends from Zulu royalty, so I have to

change my surname to Hlongwane before i can get married,” Tina explains. she must also go to the mountain

and slaughter cows to acknowledge her new surname.

“I don’t have time right now. I have so many shows to do and I released my new album this week,” she says. Meanwhile, on the cover of her new CD sleeve she uses the surname Mkwaiwa.

Tina adds that Prosper’s drawn-out divorce is delaying the much anticipated wedding.
