Urban grooves star Trevor Dongo is officially off the market after paying lobola for her long time sweetheart Ashley Maumbe last weekend.Trevor D, as he is popularly known in the musical circles, got engaged to Maumbe in April last year. She is a model who was Miss Global International Zimbabwe finalist in 2013.
Dongo paid the bride price at Maumbe’s parents’ home in Zimre Park.
The musician confirmed that he had paid lobola saying he was grateful to God that he has finally married the woman of his dreams.
“I just want to thank God that I managed to pay lobola for someone I really love. She is just the one for me and she makes me complete. I cannot look for anyone else. I am grateful to God for her,” he said.
The two love-birds have never hidden their affection for each other as shown on their social media platforms, especially Facebook, where the two would post their pictures accompanied with love captions.
“Chihera vabata havo shaya, aiwa chikonaz musavatyire, vanokuda zvakadzika kudarika gungwa. (My fiancé is thinking of me, don’t worry, my love for you is deeper than the ocean),” read one of Trevor’s recent post whilst he was on a musical tour in UK.
Dongo also revealed that his hit song “African Girl” from his latest album “Handisi Kumira” was a direct dedication to Ashley.
“She is the African girl that I was talking about on that song and wedding bells are just around the corner,
“Ndikuda kukurovai nesurprise attack . . . (I am going to surprise you). The wedding is going to be sooner than you might think,” he said.
Meanwhile, Dongo has released the video for the song “African Girl” that is expected to be a hit when it hit the big screen soon.
Though he has had a fair share of ups and downs since he shot to fame in the late 2000s, Dongo remains a force in the urban grooves genre.
He was once accused of impregnating an 18-year-old dancer early last year but he denied the allegations and claims Maumbe had already ‘stolen’ his heart.
Vocal-wise, Dongo effortlessly delivers the music to the people and there is no denying the fact that he surely knows how to rock his fans.
Those who have been following his music would attest to the fact that he is not getting enough recognition from the industry although he is talented basing with his performance at the Miss World Zimbabwe finals recently.
