IN a dramatic turn of events, Sir Wicknell Chivayo has dismissed the whole story of him marrying a Zulu chick as a mare prank.
His response come amid widespread criticism and attacks from the women community who believed his post was demeaning and undermining local Zimbabwean women.
The B.I.G look alike self proclaimed millionaire took to his Facebook page to water down claims that he had been swept by some hot descendant of King Shaka and emphasized that he was still single and searching.
” I’m flabbergasted to see how this silly story went viral. It’s a shame Zimbabwe has no news hence newspapers , online publications and radio stations are all going on about Wicknell getting married.
“This false news has caused instability on the market and I wish to make it clear to all those prospective candidates who had lost hope that I’M VERY SINGLE and still searching. Do not despair I do not even know that girl on the picture neither do I even know her name. As a tourist I was having lunch at LESEDI cultural Village in South Africa and I just asked my driver and body guard to take some pictures. For the record when I get married i will never ever post my wife on social media,” said Sir Wicknell.
The reports of sir Wicknell getting married had been generated by his Facebook post in which he posted pictures of him and a tattooed Zulu girl which appeared under the post “WICKNELL THE ZULU…….TI ITEI MAKOROKOTO TAPINDA TAPINDA MACHENA KUNO…….I’ve finally decided to marry this SOUTH AFRICAN girl from the village. We had a good discussion but she asked why can’t you marry back home ?I said I think most of our ZIMBABWEAN girls are very disrespectful and stubborn.”
It appears the whole Facebook post was just a prank after all if what Wicknell is saying on his page is anything to go by.
“Do not despair I do not even know that girl on the picture neither do I even know her name. As a tourist I was having lunch at LESEDI cultural Village in South Africa and I just asked my driver and body guard to take some pictures. For the record when I get married i will never ever post my wife on social media. You need to understand sometimes I just wake up and feel like saying something crazy and you all know I LOVE YOUR REACTION CONTROVERSY IS MY COMFORT ZONE.
“Having said that i wish to acknowledge i feel so loved and I’m happy to note Zimbabwean girls don’t want me to marry a foreigner. I believe in BLACK EMPOWERMENT and support of locals so indeed the same principle applies. I will not let a girl from no where come and spend all my money instead I will make sure it continues to circulate locally,” he said.
Wicknell’s post in which he is believed to have insulted Zimbabwean women generated more than 200 000 comments withing a space of 24 hours.
Venomous tongue lady of the cloth Amai Gunguwo, also took to social media to insult Wicknell over his fleshy looks claiming no Zimbabwean woman would want to bed him.
