Bheki and Linah Ngcobo open up about their beautiful love story

Ihashi Elimhlophe was a household name in South African maskandi traditional Zulu music for many year with its leader being Bheki Ngcobo - the brains behind the group. Bheki and Elinah Ngcobo spent time with Phemelo on the weekend Breakfast talking about their time in the music industry.

The couple shared how their family is deeply rooted in religion and that every Sunday, its a norm at home that everyone goes to church.

The most important thing when we were raising our children, we never taught them to fear us, we taught them to fear God. When they fear God we believe that they will do things the right way, but when they fear us, they will always do the wrong things and make sure that we don't see them.

Linah 'Ebony' Ngcobo - Musician

Ebony reminisced how she met her husband - Bheki Ngcobo, and how tough life was when they had their first son. The couple shared some colourful career highlights that include being awarded a lifetime achievement award in 2007.

When I met my wife before she was Linah and we fell in love. It happened that she got more successful before I was. In the process when I was still trying to build my career, she was my pillar. I got my diving license through her assistance and she bought me my first car.

Bheki Ngcobo - Musician

After recording a successful album 'Icala', Bheki decided to pursue a career as solo artist. That is when he gave himself the name ‘Ihashi Elimhlophe’. He became known as a guitar maestro on his rare 14-string guitar. His first album 'Hololo' was soon followed by a long string of successful releases. To date he has recorded 28 studio albums as Ihashi Elimhlophe.
