Controversial entertainment blogger Musa Khawula shared a screenshot of Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) star Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco sporting the engagement ring former President Jacob Zuma got her, in a recent Instagram Live – via a tweet on 2 May. 


LaConco is known for being the “baby mama” of former President Jacob Zuma. The RHOD star was previously engaged to Zuma and he was said to have paid lobola for her in 2018 but little was known about their relationship. 

This was until LaConco revealed that she is raising their son alone in the first episode of the second season of RHOD. 

“The position I am in… I found love and I stayed true to that love. But unfortunately, there were people who had an interest in that love and made it a public thing when it was not my intention,” she said to Sorisha Naidoo.

“I never knew I would be at a stage where I am raising my son with my mom. I never fell in love… to be at this situation I am at today. I don’t think the scars will ever heal,” she added.

Many were interested in the reality star’s love life, including the cast of RHOD but LaConco insisted on maintaining her privacy. However, she was sent flowers from “Petal” at an event held at Jojo Robinson’s home. “Petal” was believed to be LaConco’s “bae,” but many also accused her of being a “pathological liar.”

The reality star shocked her fans and Tweeps when she posted a sweet birthday tribute to Zuma in April. Now, controversial entertainment blogger Musa Khawula claims LaConco was wearing the same ring Zuma got her, in an Instagram Live video. Take a look…

This led many to believe that LaConco and Zuma were still together. Take a look…

“They are still together, she was there at Baba’s Birthday Celebration. Saw her on IG of Uzalo producer, Gugu Zuma. She was also on Duduzile Zuma’s story standing with Duduzane who was holding her son – Asakhe,” wrote @Lwazii_RSA.

Others thought “Petal” is actually Zuma.
