Caiphus Semenya and Letta Mbulu: a love story

At a time when celebrity marriages rarely last, the magazine thought it be appropriate to celebrate the beautiful union between legendary musical director and composer Caiphus Semenya and his equally iconic wife, singer Letta Mbulu. This year Caiphus bows out of the music industry, while Letta is releasing her first album in five years. 

The two lovebirds met in their teens and were honoured at DRUM’s 60th birthday celebration last year with the Couple to Look Up To award. In the latest issue, they share what strenghened their bond over the years and reveal the things they enjoy most in life – apart from their love for one another. They also reflect on the past and on how living in exile affected their family, telling readers what it meant to them to return home.

Readers can also enjoy articles on Spikiri – the founder of kwaito – and wild-child turned calm mom and wife Pushie, who shows us her family. 

Caiphus Semenye and Letta Mbulu have always been examples of how good marriage lasts.
