NOT all of
us are lucky enough to be given a second chance at love. But the same cannot be
said for Zambianborn media personality, Masechaba Ndlovu, who found love again

first marriage to her babydaddy and her current one to her husband, Vusi. “It’s

parents, until they both had to branch out into the world for further military
training and to pursue their studies. I was smuggled into South Africa at age
five and left for the US at age six, where I spent my formative childhood
years. I have a sister who is five years younger than me.”
