While in most marriages when a woman and a man become joined in marriage, they spend their first few months together thinking about each other only, Gogo Skotheni’s case was different. In a recent interview, the famous sangoma revealed that shortly after her wedding, she started receiving dreams from her ancestors instructing her to take up a second husband.
Gogo Skotheni who revealed that she had never been a believer of polyandrous relationships and believed in one man-one woman relationship was caught by surprise by the ancestors’ instructions but she had to comply with them.
The Moja Love reality star also disclosed that her husband was reluctant about her getting a second husband.

Gogo Skotheni’s wedding to her second husband happened about eight months ago but according to the sangoma, she hasn’t shared photos of the wedding yet because the episode has not been aired on the show yet.
