Ex Big Brother Africa contestant, Munya Chidzonga finally married his long time love, singer Adiona Maboreke, at a private ceremony held at Rivertree Pungano in Harare's Chisipite suburb on Saturday, September 1, 2012, the Zimbo Jam reported.

Munya paid lobola for Adiona earlier this year, in January, and the running joke was that he had finally done in real life what he had done in the movie, Lobola, where he starred with Dalma Chiwereva.

On Saturday morning an ecstatic Adiona posted on Facebook; "Mercy said no! Today is my wedding day! The devil has been put to shame! My God rules! Ladies... fairytales exist! I'm walking down the aisle with my prince charming today! Thank you lord...you are a God of answered prayer!"

Munya, making his first status update in over a month, had this to say, "Getting married in three hours...its show time thanks for the love people."

As Adiona walked down the aisle three hours later, she was the image of resplendence in her flowing white gown. The groomsmen responded by getting onto their knees and clapping in a traditional gesture to thank their in-laws for the gift of a new wife.

The marital ceremony was overseen by Reverend Father Fenga of the Anglican Church and witnessed by a small gathering of family and friends. After exchanging their vows the couple signed the register, but not before they had sealed the union with a passionate kiss .

The traditional Anglican ceremony was brief and emotional and there were tears as the couple strolled out arm in arm.

After the usual photos, the reception kicked off with the Bridal party performing the traditional "steps" for the gathering but with a funked up modern and youthful feel to them.

Adiona's parents, who could not be at the ceremony, sent video messages congratulating the newly-weds on their union. Elizabeth Karonga spoke on behalf of Munya's maternal side. And Mr Finhai Maboreke spoke on behalf of the Maboreke family.

A highlight of the ceremony was when Adiona sang a song, titled I Love You, which she penned for Munya.

The groom responded with an impromptu dance for his new bride as guests broke into applause.

Munya and Adiona have been going out for several years now and were dating as far back as 2009. They have a two-year old son, Pfumai.

Both are former reality TV stars. Adiona took part in Idols East Africa in 2008 where she came out in the top four and was one of five Zimbabweans in the top ten (the others were Eric Moyo, who won the competition, Trinah Chisanga, 3rd, Amara Brown, 5th, Mkhululi Bhebhe, 6th and Samantha Tirivacho, 8th).

Munya came second to Nigeria's Uti Nwachukwu in Big Brother All Stars in 2010 in a highly disputed ruling where his fellow countrymen and thousands of other viewers across Africa thought he should have won the US$200 000 first prize. He was subsequently given US$300 000, raised by Zimbabwean businessmen and handed to him by President Robert Mugabe.

Speaking to Zimbo Jam a thrilled Munya said, "I am no longer Diamond Boy, I am now officially Mr Diamond."

There were tithis day would never come. In June last year, Munya and Adiona parted ways and Munya was quoted by the Sunday Mail as saying "It is true that we separated. It was not working and there is no specific reason for the separation. It happens with any other break-up when you both realise that this is not going the way it is supposed to be.




Even at that time though he thought that Adiona was; "still a great person."

Apparently she thought the very same thing...
