DJ Zinhle and AKA’s break-up was the biggest scandal of the year, see Top 5 celeb scandals of 2020


The year 2020 has been one most of the people never want to repeat, including a number of our celebs who found themselves the topics of dialogue on these social media streets.

In a year crammed with an epidemic leading many of us to self-isolate, many Mzansi celebs including AKA and DJ Zinhle made headlines for “unexpected” and scandalous spilts.

They weren’t the couple who found themselves within the midst of a scandal. Zodwa Wabantu caused a stir on social media when she split from her Ben 10 lover Vusi Buthelezi, and Lerato Kganyago and Thami Ndala’s scandalous “divorce” left the media personality hitting back at those that are always prying into her private life.

AKA confirms spilt from DJ Zinhle survive air

After a video of him kissing a “mysterious” woman at a restaurant nearly pack up the web in February, AKA found himself spilling tea on his split from baby mama DJ Zinhle.

Though initially silent when the “TMZ-style” video surfaced, the rapper later broke his silence. News that the couple’s relationship was on the rocks first surfaced earlier this year when City Press and Sunday World reported that they had choppy .

After weeks of speculation, AKA spilled the tea on their break-up in an interview on Metro FM in January.

The Baddest hitmaker told DJs Sphectacula and Naves: “It’s been a crazy start to the year. I had to travel away. I went on holiday. i used to be just speaking off air that I went on a really cold holiday. As people may need noticed, it’s my first holiday being one man for several , a few years .”

When contacted by TshisaLIVE at the time, AKA’s manager Phumza Nohashe, said: “I don’t discuss his personal life. inquire from me about his business life and that i can discuss that. At now I won’t be giving comment.”

In March Zinhle revealed she was fine after her public break-up with the rapper, saying she is doing well, but is slightly overworked.

The star told Drum magazine the rationale behind her relative silence about the split was thanks to being booked and busy.

Family and work are important to Zinhle, who said: “I am fine, I’m genuinely fine. I even have just been overworked.”

She said as far as her relationship together with her baby daddy was concerned, they were civil towards one another and “one big happy family”.

“Kiernan, my mom and that i , most are just getting along. Our break-up hasn’t choppy the family. It doesn’t need to be a romantic relationship to form a family work which is what we try to try to to now.”

Zodwa Wabantu & Vusi Buthelezi caused chaos on these social streets with their split

Socialite Zodwa, who was fresh from a break-up, found herself within the arms of much younger lover Vusi .

The pair reportedly split in June, and therefore the circumstances resulting in the autumn out are still sketchy.

The socialite threw herself into work, launching new beauty products and endorsing clinical procedures, but told TshisaLIVE she was hopeful Vusi would come .

“As someone who lives her life within the spotlight, my relationships are very public. When people ask if we’ve choppy , I tell them that it’s over but we are still trying to figure things out,” she said.

“I love him and hope we will make things better .”

The pair broke up in May after an opportunity in at their home, which put strain on their relationship.

“We are browsing the foremost since the break in. We both skilled it differently and it had been difficult for us. We decided to require an opportunity but we could revisit together once the initial trauma has passed.”

Vusi didn’t come as Zodwa expected, and in August the socialite found herself opening a “fraud case” against him.

Zodwa claimed Vusi was allegedly using her name during a deal , a claim his legal team has denied.

Approached for comment, Zodwa said she had opened a case of fraud against Vusi and would serve him with a letter of demand.

“The police said I shouldn’t discuss the matter. I even have a letter of demand for defrauding me,” she said.

Vusi’s lawyer, Howard Felix, told TshisaLIVE he wasn’t conscious of a fraud case opened against his client.


“To our knowledge, because it stands, there’s no confirmation of a fraud case being brought against our client.”

Lerato Kganyago and Thami Ndala;s bizarre ‘divorce’

While people kept meddling in her sexual love , Lerato took to social media confirming she and Thami had split.

The star shocked many when she issued a public statement on social media last month confirming that she and Thami had split two months after they got married.

The statement confirming the split has since been removed.

A Sunday Sun report claims the split was “bogus” and therefore the couple are still together.

Approached by TshisaLIVE for discuss the report, Lerato asked if she had ever discussed her private life with the media and refused to comment further.

However, taking to social media, she appeared to laugh away the rumours and slammed those that were gossiping about her marriage.

In a statement on Instagram Stories, Lerato claimed “those involved haven’t uttered a word”, but the rumours were still being presented as fact.

“I’m getting to keep dribbling them,” she added.

LootLove and Reason’s ‘unexpected’ split

Another celebrity scandal that took Mzansi by storm this year was Luthando “LootLove” Shosha’s separation from long-time bae Sizwe “Reason” Moeketsi.

LootLove broke the news on her official social media account in May, but didn’t reveal the explanations why she and baby daddy decided to travel separate ways.

In a statement released on her Instagram page, LootLove said: “Sizwe and that i have separated. However, we still partner gracefully in raising our beautiful kids. i feel anyone browsing something this complex and painful would understand why I wouldn’t want anyone to possess a front row seat to my grieving and healing.”

She said they need separated but will still co-parent together.

Speaking to Sunday Sun, Reason confirmed the separation and asked for privacy for the sake of their children and families.

However, the rapper took to Instagram to wish his baby mama a cheerful Mother’s Day , saying their twins were lucky to possess her as a mother.

“Happy Mother’s Day Mommy Love. Never let yesterday’s storm steal today’s sunshine. S & Z are lucky to possess LootLove as a mommy! Enjoy.”

Enhle Mbali lambastes tweeps for mocking Black Coffee’s disability

In October, actress Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa was fuming over insensitive hand jokes leveled against her ex Black Coffee after she posted a video featuring a prosthetic hand while on set for an upcoming show, Blood Psalms.

This came after Enhle posed with the prosthetic hand on her Instagram stories and jokingly told fans she was chilling together with her “new man” before revealing the hand was a prosthetic made by the show’s makeup department.

While Enhle thought it had been a harmless “joke”, she was left with having to call her social media followers to order, calling their behaviour “stupid, disgusting and embarrassing” for creating fun of her ex-husband, who injured his hand years ago.

In a video she shared on Twitter, Enhle expressed how disappointed she was that folks were using her post as a snub towards the daddy of her children.

“I’m disgusted with what you guys did with the previous post. the maximum amount as Black Coffee and that i aren’t together, his still the daddy of my children. you can’t do what you’re doing with this hand situation. i feel it’s insensitive and outright stupid. Stop it!

“I’m getting to be a mother immediately because I feel i want to. you’ll sometimes be very insensitive with sensitive matters. The post I made was from set. Stop it, stop being stupid. Behave! As a black people, it’s embarrassing how you constantly pull one another down. Stop!”
