Wema Sepetu emerged onto the celebrity scene when she won the 2006 Miss Tanzania title. Her win instantly made her the toast of the town and saw her leverage her fame for acting roles where she met movie-star Steven Kanumba.
While many might associate the petite beauty with Diamond Platnumz’s, her first major relationship was with the late Kanumba.
The two made for the perfect celebrity couple at the time-a sort of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston comparison (I know I exaggerate).
During their relationship, Wema got pregnant twice with Steven’s kids, which she always aborted, something that has haunted her to this day as she believes that he cursed her.
Her theory was confirmed by the late Kanumba’s mom when she was a guest on her show, Cook With Wema. During the interview, Kanumba’s mum openly admitted she knew about Wema’s abortion because it really hurt her son.
Kanumba’s mum disclosed her son had revealed to her that he was hurt by Wema’s actions, and because of that had laid a curse on her.
”Whatever you have been saying, my son told me the same. He even said you may look for the richest man and maybe try to get a kid but it will never be possible, unless you went back to him, you could never get a kid. He told me that unfortunately, you would have gone back to him when he is poor and broke.” Kanumba’s mum told Wema.
This information comes barely a year after Miss Sepetu publicly confessed to doing away with the late legendary actor’s pregnancy.
She revealed this while answering a question on whether she thinks Kanumba left her with a curse. ”I feel like Kanumba cursed me. This is because he really wanted to see me, he would call everyday two weeks before his death. We were to meet but we were super busy we could not. He called for like four times but we could not meet. We finally met at Bilcanas, he told me, see where we get to meet,” Wema said.
‘He told me I owe him, he told me I will not get babies with anyone else because he was the father of my babies. He told me I owe him two babies. This is because I had terminated two of his pregnancies. Every time we used to meet he would remind me that I owe him. I saw him on Wednesday and I heard he was dead on Thursday,” she added.
