Retirement from Music

Bucie revealed in a 20174 interview with True Love magazine that she would retire from music to focus on being a wife and a mother.

A year after her retirement, she did an interview with Power FM's Mpumi Mlambo and revealed that she no longer enjoyed fame, "I grew up wanting to be famous. I think what I wanted was to be famous and everyone to know me. All I wanted was to be famous then. Now it is different. Now I want nothing to do with fame. I just want to sing and have no one know the face behind the voice. It is so exhausting".

In an interview with a now defunct Destiny Magazine, Bucie described the music industry as "cruel", "If someone is not your blood relative, they aren’t your family, she says. It’s a cruel industry and you realise that those who have made it and who you look up to are the very same people who oppress you".

She later told the Sowetan that her 2018 album, Rebirth was her last. "This is my final album, I’m out, I also just want to take some time off and spend it with my family. I’m a mom again. I have my sons, and need to spend time with them."

Personal Life

Bucie is married to Zimbabwean Chartered Accountant, Nhlanhla Nkomo. "He came into my life unexpectedly. I had just broken up with someone I dated for three and a half years. and told myself I wouldn't allow myself to," Bucie told True Love magazine.

"I was resentful because my ex and I were together for so long and in the end he wasn't 'The One'. I was angry at myself for not seeing the signs sooner. I put so much energy into that relationship only for it to not work," Bucie said in an interview with True Love magazine.

Domestic Violence

Bucie was a victim of Domestic Violence, this is according to an article published by ZAlebs.

"Victim Busisiwe Nqwiliso alleged that on 25 September at about 9.40pm she was at her house in Helderkruin, Roodepoort, and was with her husband, Nhlanhla.

"He came to the other bedroom and grabbed her cellphone from her hand. He went through her cellphone and then went out of the bedroom. She followed him and asked for her cellphone. He then slapped her on the face and she pushed him down the stairs.

He came back and continued to assault her with an open hand. He hit her with a fist on her face and on the head. The victim has no visible injuries," ZAlebs quoted a police statement.
