Nyan Nyan host Luyanda Potwana blames pastor for spoiling wedding plan
Potwana was laying all the blame for his failed engagement to Busisiwe Majavu at the door of pastor Julio Portela, who is a senior clergy at the UCKG branch in Spruitview on the East Rand where his then financée was a servant.
Potwana (33) and Majavu (24) got engaged in 2013 after meeting in church in early 2012.
This week Potwana, who advises viewers of his Nyan Nyan show about love, poured his heart out to Sunday World about the reasons for his failed engagement.
“I’ve been protecting my church like most people do but now I can’t live with a lie that I have cheated on Busi. Sometimes I hate myself for telling couples on TV how to stay faithful while I’m known as a cheat and liar,” said Potwana.
The church denied the allegations, pointing out that pastor Portela blessed their relationship when asked to do so by Potwana.
“… There is no truth in the allegation that the pastor did anything to influence the relationship or the breakdown of it. The pastor reports that some time later Busisiwe told him that they had broken up.
