Owami and Olwethu: And the two become wives of one
Owami and Olwethu: And the two become wives of one

One year ago, twins Owami and Olwethu Mzazi made national headlines when they married the same man in a colorful ceremony. the twins who share everything together could not fathom being separated by a man so they gave him a condition to ‘take us all or none’. The man, 52 year old Mzukiseni Mzazi was more than happy to get two wives at that time.

But now one year down the line, things are no longer rosey for the twins as they are reported to be at loggerheads. Sources close to the twins say one of the twins, Olwethu has been unhappy with Owami because of her insatiable s-ex drive and Mzukiseni is making things worse by ‘favoring’ Owami.

It is believed that the twins initially set a duty roaster for conjugal rights but Owami kept breaking it thus leaving Olwethu yearning for some bedroom gymnastics. The source said , ‘Owami would demand so much from old madala that he would not give Olwethu anything the following day’. It is also reported that Mzukiseni was in a habit of buying expensive gifts for Owami and forget he has two wives. This infuriated Olwethu who in turn confronted her sister over it but Owami professed ignorance.

The situation is said to be so dire that Olwethu is said to be plotting to leave the union and find happiness elsewhere. (Source:

Identical twins Owami and Olwethu Mzazi are from Vosloorus in South Africa. The pair used to share everything without envy or jealousy dividing them.
Owami and Olwethu even took a step further when they married the same man – a man twice their age. They say their life-long dream was to marry the same man.

Growing up, the girls washed the dishes, played, went to school and even bathed side by side. They were brought up by their grandmother. Owami and Olwethu, explained to South African Broadcasting Corporation’s Mapaseka Mokwele how the union works for them; how they sleep in separate bedrooms and how their husband alternated his nights and how sometimes they all share the same bed.

Owami and Olwethu got married to their man on the same day after he paid their dowry.

“We have always done everything together” Owami had told South Africa’s Drum Magazine in February, 2016. “That is how our grandmother raised us.”
With this upbringing, they knew that nothing would separate them, not even a man.

Owami and Olwethu each have a 3-year-old daughter who are so fond of each other they share a bedroom. They have even christened their mothers ‘Mama One’ and ‘Mama Two’.

Owami and Olwethu say they aren’t jealous of each other because their ‘wise’ husband has a sense of equality.
“When he is about to come home, he will send an SMS to both of us. He is coming to the same house but he separates the SMSs,” said the twins during the interview as translated on Ms Mokwele’s SABC show.

As to why they married a man way older than them, Owami and Olwethu said they were looking for a mature man who would use his wisdom to maintain the unity they cultivated since childhood – an argument that was firmly supported by their uncle and their grandmother.

“Our husband was our acting teacher and after a while, we developed a bond. He told us that he loved both of us from the beginning. Back then he didn’t know that we wanted to marry one person,” said the twins.

Owami and Olwethu are both theatre arts students at City Varsity and frankly speaking, all of this story still looks to HAMILTONSTYLE like a script playing out on stage. What do you think?[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
