SA celebrity breakups of 2020
When it comes to long-term relationships, Mzansi’s celebville doesn’t seem to have the best track record. We’ve barely gone past the second quarter of the year and we have already witnessed some jaw-dropping celebrity breakups.
So far, we have seen Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali breaking up, although it was late year, their breakup is still sending shockwaves on social media, such that it still seems fresh. We’ve also seen, Zodwa Wabantu’s split from her Ben 10 lover Vusi Buthelezi and Lerato Kganyago and Thami Ndala’s divorce.
Some couples seem to go the distance- Zakes Bantwini and Nandi Madida seem to be going strong, Siya Kholisi and Rachel also seem to be doing well- but not everyone in Mzansiville is so lucky to enjoy a lasting relationship. Whilst, not every celebrity couple is destined for disaster, dating in the limelight can be difficult.
As for this year, these are the breakups that have left Mzansi shook.
1. Zodwa Wabantu & Vusi Buthelezi
First on the list is still fresh. Zodwa Wabantu’s breakup with her much younger lover Vusi Buthelezi. The pair reportedly split earlier this month and the circumstances leading to the fall-out are still sketchy.
What we know so far is that Vusi walked out on Zodwa without even giving an explanation. Zodwa recently poured out her heart and revealed that she was forced to beg him for an explanation. This was after Vusi had confronted the vivacious entertainer why she splashed details of their breakup on social media. In an interview with a local publication, the raunchy dancer said that she was still in love with Vusi and would do anything it takes to get him back. Good luck with that Zodwa!
2. Lerato Kganyago And Thami Ndala Divorce
Second on the list is one of Mzansi’s shortest celebrity marriages. Metro FM presenter Lerato Kganyago and entrepreneur husband Thami Ndala’s divorce. Just like Zodwa and Vusi’s split, it’s still fresh. The couple broke the news of their amicable separation two weeks ago. Their separation comes barely two months after they got married. News of their breakup broke the internet as Mzansi reacted to stunning development.
In a social media post confirming the split, Lerato explained why the couple decided to call it quits, “We have come to realise that our different priorities and workloads have not afforded us the time to invest in our relationship.”
3. Mona Monyane and Khulu Skenjana
In early March, seasoned actress Mona Monyane left many of her fans shell-shocked after announcing that she was divorcing her actor husband Khuli Skejana. When Monyane let the cat out of the bag, she went on to ask her fans not to give up on love and to continue believing in companionship and family. In a post she made on social media, she said,
“My husband and I have parted ways. I know this will come as a shock to many and I ask that you continue to believe in love and family. The battles we have met have been difficult to overcome together and I ask that you respect us by not sensationalizing our separation.”
4. LootLove and Reason split
Another celebrity split that took Mzansi by storm is Luthando ‘LootLove’ Shosha’s separation from long time husband Sizwe ‘Reason’ Moeketsi. LootLove broke the news on her official social media account earlier this month but did not reveal why the two have decided to go separate ways.
In a statement which she released on her Instagram page, Lootlove said, “Sizwe and I have separated, however, we continue to partner gracefully in raising our beautiful kids. I think anyone going through something this complex and painful, would understand why I wouldn’t want anyone to have a front-row seat to my grieving & healing.”
5. Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali
It would be impossible to talk about celebrity breakups that left Mzansi shook without talking about Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali’s divorce. They were the ultimate power couple. Whenever you’d think of couple goals, they were the first to come to mind. That is why we have included their separation in the 2020 celebrity breakup list although they split late last year. I guess we are all still in disbelief.
Enhle confirmed the breakup in November last year after the divorce was detailed in a court application filed by her. Black Coffee also spoke on the matter citing that the couple had “tried everything, such as seeing a therapist and a life coach, but nothing worked.”
