Gospel singer Winnie Mashaba has not given up her dream of having children but says she is leaving it in God’s hands. The musician and her husband of 14 years Peter Mashaba would love to have children but have had to deal with loss on their road to parenthood. Winnie suffered two miscarriages in the past. Speaking to Drum magazine, Winnie says she trust’s God’s timing.
“After two miscarriages, I gave everything to God. Sometimes I joke and say maybe Modimo (God) knows if He gives me children now, I’m going to neglect the other responsibilities I have,” she told the publication. Winnie is currently looking after her two younger siblings. Helen and Karabo, who are in their early twenties, are living with Winnie and Peter while they complete their studies.
“Only God knows if I will have biological children or continue to take care of the children I have now,” she told Drum. Like many married couples, Winnie has had to deal with people constantly asking her when she will be having children, with some reminding the 37-year-old that her biological clock is ticking.
I just laugh at them because I know everything will happen at the right time. Her faith and her music keep her going through the difficult moments. Winnie is celebrating 20 years in the music industry. She released her album, The Journey with Winnie Mashaba (Live at the Emperors Palace), earlier this year to coincide with her anniversary.
“Anyone who doesn’t know Winnie Mashaba must get this album. You will understand where I’m coming from and what I’ve gone through in this industry. You’ll know more about me,” she told the publication.
