Unathi is looking better than ever these days but she is in no hurry to find ‘Mr Right’

The singer announced in October last year that she was calling time on her relationship with Thomas Msengana

While she was adamant that they were separating and not divorcing, their marriage appears to be over for good.

Speaking to SowetanLIVE, Unathi says she is enjoying the single life

“I feel like that 22-year-old who first moved to Johannesburg in 2001. Being single is fantastic because I am getting to know myself and what I genuinely like and it’s a wonderful place to be. I’m going to stay single for a very long time.”

The Idols SA judge is focusing on her career and taking care of her family.

She is embarking on her first music tour, ‘Brave, True and Strong’, which celebrates “women, perseverance and the beauty of life”.

Her five-city tour kicked off in August and will be heading to Port Elizabeth this week.

She performed to a sold-out crowd in Polokwane last month, which might not have been possible a few years ago.

Unathi, who has lost over 28 kilograms, says she struggled to book gigs when she was at her heaviest

“When I weighed 98kg I wasn’t getting any gigs to MC, perform or do public speaking but as soon as I started losing the weight and started on my transformation, things changed,” she told the publication.

2017 was a tough year for the star, but things are looking up for Unathi. She looks better than ever, her career is flourishing and she is enjoying life to the fullest.

Unathi is also using her star power to give back, being part of the line-up for this week’s Rhodes University Benefit Show.

“I am giving EVERY SINGLE Rand made through ticket sales back to Rhodes University for Bursaries/Scholarships. Hope to see you there (sic),” she wrote on Instagram.
