Magdalene Lesolebe, the Culture Spears front lady also going by the sobriquet, Charma-Gal in her Ekentolo hits, says she feels she was forced into marriage to be enslaved and trapped, so that she is unable to fight for her rights.

She claims the marriage was arranged  in the backdrop of  a turbulent time at Culture Spears, a time that needed her    to fight the emerging dominance of one family in the group; but that fire was doused when she became a wife who was culturally expected to be submissive to her husband and in-laws. She regrets it.

Charma gal  says   the marriage to  Culture Spears frontman Kabelo Mogwe had been preceded by  a break up for three years, as well as bitter feud over business directions during the heydays of the hit album, Kulenyane, as Mogwe’s family members pushed the founding members into the periphery.
