Unlike other engagement, which are often accompanied by congratulatory messages, Nonku and RD’s has not been well-received by fans — due to RD’s alleged bad name.

Last year, when Nonku introduced RD to fans Instagram blog Maphephandaba revealed that a lady named Cece Jones came forward to allege that she is in a relationship. The woman in question claimed that she shares the same bed as Nonku’s man as she shared receipts in the form of video calls to backup her claims.

Another social media user claimed that the man in question is from their hometown in Richards Bay, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), also labelling him “the biggest crook” — The Tea World reported on YouTube.

These are not the only eyebrow-raising accusation about RD as he is also an alleged rapist. According to a 2014 article by the Zululand Observer, the businessman was accused of raping a 20-year-old woman in Richards Bay. RD, who was described as a community leader at the time, was 35 years old.

A since-delete police statement confirmed Ndlazi’s arrest in 2016.

The South African website also contacted the journalist behind the story, who confirmed that the man in question was indeed Ndlazi. She also revealed that after only a few months behind bars, he was released. However, there was no information about the reason for his release.

Despite all the accusations against Ndlazi, Nonku defended him in an interview with Zimoja last month.

The reality TV star said that there is nothing she does not know about him. She further stated that she will not be leaving him based on social media allegations.

“People do not know the dynamic of our relationship to have an opinion about my personal love life. I am not going leave my man because of what people are saying about us on social media. People can either keep their opinion to themselves or shove it where the sun does not shine,” the publication quoted her as saying.
