Iam not bothered by those criticising me for having four baby daddies – Gogo Maweni

Gogo Maweni announced that she is expecting her fourth child and the first with her husband, Sabelo Magube. Though a lot of people have come out to criticise her for having four children with four different fathers, Maweni, real name Lee Ann Mokopo, could not be bothered and says a child is a gift from God.

Gogo Maweni had her first child with an unknown man from the US, her second child with actor Sthembiso ‘SK’ Khoza, and her third child with fallen footballer, Siyabonga Zulu. At first, she didn’t want to have another baby. “I felt the three boys I have were enough. The fact that I have them with different fathers is an issue for some people but not for me.” She is not bothered by people criticising her for having four baby daddies. “People will always have something to say, it doesn’t bother me.



I know that the baby will bring unity and joy to both families. I look forward to being a new mom again. At least this time it will be different because I will be giving birth to a child that will be in a home with both mom and dad. It is not what has happened to me in the past. Like many who spent Mother’s Day treating their loved ones, she spent the day with her mom, stepmom, children and husband. She gifted her mother with a new BMW.

“I love seeing her happy,” she says. “On Mother’s Day, I usually start the day with my mom, spend time with her, then I move on to my stepmom and spend time with her as I did yesterday and I do this with all my kids as I am with them most of the time,” she says. “I’m very family oriented. I don’t have a lot of friends but I have a lot of family members and my immediate family and I are very close.” She takes her job as a mom very seriously and it is what encourages her to wake up every morning.

My boys are the reason I work so hard, they are the reason why I push and unfortunately they don’t have supportive fathers, so I have no choice but to do everything on my own and I have to show up for them,” she adds. “I will never ask my parents to help me with my kids financially but they will always be when it comes to raising them, protecting them and instilling values. I have to work hard and make sure they have everything they need. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be strong and passionate about what I do. They came into my life and changed everything
