Sharon Macheso, the daughter of Zimbabwean Sungura star Alick Macheso and his wife Nyadzisai, has had her life marked by both joyous occasions and tumultuous moments. In this biography, we delve into the details of her marriage, wedding, and the challenges she faced.
2014 Sharon embarked on a new chapter in her life as she tied the knot with Kudakwashe Munetsi. Their union made headlines across Zimbabwe, as they celebrated their love with a traditional Lobola ceremony, where Munetsi paid a bride price to the Macheso family.
The Bride Price
The bride price, a topic of much discussion, reportedly amounted to $12,000, but Munetsi managed to negotiate it down to $6,000. This negotiation became a point of interest among the public.
Regrettably, the love story between Sharon and Munetsi took an unexpected turn. Just three months after their grand wedding, Sharon initiated divorce proceedings, and their marriage came to an end.
The divorce was finalized in the High Court of Harare, with the judge granting their separation because the couple had lived apart for four years. The legal closure marked the end of their once-promising relationship.
During their brief marriage, reports of domestic disputes and allegations of domestic violence surfaced. These issues cast a shadow over their relationship, contributing to their eventual separation and divorce.
A Grand Affair
On Monday, August 11, 2014, Sharon Macheso and Kudakwashe Munetsi celebrated their love with a lavish wedding ceremony at Oliver Mtukudzi’s Pakare Paye Arts Centre in Norton, Zimbabwe.
A Blessed Beginning
The day commenced with a morning church service at St Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church in Waterfalls, Harare, officiated by Father Xavier Mukupo. Sharon’s father, Alick Macheso, walked her down the aisle, marking a special and emotional moment.
Dressed for Elegance
Guests adhered to a black and red dress code, with men wearing stylish black ties, adding a touch of sophistication to the event.
Entertainment and Generosity
The wedding featured a performance by Sulumani Chimbetu, a renowned artist known for his hit song “Batai Munhu,” enhancing the celebratory atmosphere.
One of the most memorable highlights of the wedding was the generous gifts bestowed upon the couple. Alick Macheso, Sharon’s father, presented the newlyweds with their matrimonial house in Chitungwiza as a heartfelt gesture of appreciation and happiness for their marriage.
Additionally, Walter Magaya, the leader of PHD Ministries, contributed to the joyous occasion by presenting Sharon and Kudakwashe with a generous gift of USD 2,000, symbolizing blessings for their future together.
Challenges and Separation
Despite the grandeur of their wedding, Sharon Macheso and Kudakwashe Munetsi faced challenges in their marriage. Only two months after the wedding, Munetsi faced domestic violence charges, and witnesses testified about conflicts and disagreements between the couple. These issues ultimately led to their separation and subsequent divorce.
