The relationship has, however, irked Roki who at one point manhandled Manzul at Pauline’s birthday party.
While Pauline was evasive about the relationship, Manzul said he was prepared to settle down with Pauline.
“We are more than just fellow musicians. Pauline has gone through a lot in life. She deserved a real man who will look after her. Love is a special thing and I am very happy,” said Manzul.
The musician, who is popularly known as Fuzzy L, said the relationship has created problems with Roki who is said to be not happy that Pauline has moved on.
“We were good friends with Roki, but we are no longer in good books. He wanted to cause a big scene at Pauline’s birthday party, questioning why I had organised the bash,” he said.
Pauline said she will only comment when she gets a wedding ring.
“I will only say much about my relationship when I have a wedding ring,” she said.
Pauline sent tongues wagging in showbiz two years ago after sending an SOS for eligible bachelors to come and hitch her on social media.
She posted on her Facebook account, “single and searching’’.
Quizzed to comment at the time, Pauline said: “This is a new year and I expect new beginnings. My love life has been affected because many people think I am still married to Roki, but we are divorced now and I am ready to move on,” she said.
Pauline and Roki were the urban grooves poster couple in the founding days of the music genre; the two married in 2004.
They had met a few years back when Pauline was just 17 years old, fresh from completing her O’ Levels at Dominican Convent High School.
They shocked fans when they decided to get married. After they got married, Roki did not want her to continue performing and she disappeared from the entertainment scene for a while.
Her first child with Roki, daughter Skye, was born in 2005. The two divorced a year later.
They reunited in 2009 and a second child, Minana, was born.
Things have not been well for the former Mafriq lead vocalist who had to suffer the ignominy of sharing the same roof with Roki’s ex-wife Melody Musekiwa at one point.
