Many of their followers were taken aback when the couple announced they were getting divorced shortly after getting married.

“It is with great sadness that I have to announce that Nzuzo Njilo and I are in the final stages of our divorce proceedings. No one gets married with the intention to get divorced. However through careful consideration and mediation, we have decided to go our separate ways. Nzuzo Njilo continues to be an amazing father to our beautiful daughter, whom we are co-parenting. As a public figure I do understand that my life is a matter of public interest, however at this sensitive time, I would appreciate some privacy.”
