Nonhle is a popular for being a fitness enthusiast. She was born on 23 May 1983 in Heidleberg, making her 40 years old this year.

Her age, throughout her relationship with Jali, was always a talking factor as she is seven years old than the footballer who was born in 1990.

The media personality is said to have started her career in sales and marketing. She later established her own print and design company, which later expanded into event management. She’s also been a cast member on a defunct reality series about South African football WAGS (wives and girlfriends) called Diski Divas.

Nonhle’s love for health and fitness also earned her a spot as another defunct fitness trainer in the celebrity edition of Bootcamp Mzansi.

Jali and Nonhle’s relationship was often riddled with controversy.

In November 2018, SowetanLIVE reported that Jali had allegedly choked Nonhle after accusing her of not sleeping at home in a domestic violence argument. In a police statement, Nonhle alleged that the soccer player threatened to kill her during a fight allegedly witnessed by their estate’s security guard. Jali also accused his ex-wife of assaulting him, subsequently opening a case of common assault against her.

In 2020, Nonhle went on a rant on Instagram Live claiming that Jali’s Mamelodi Sundowns salary was not enough to maintain her lifestyle. This was two years after he had returned from playing for Netherlands side, K.V. Oostende. Nonhle later apologised to Jali and her family.

Meanwhile, Jali was reported to have moved on with fellow footballer Thembinkosi Lorch’s ex-girlfriend, Nokuphiwa Mathithibala. Last year, there were rumours Jali had paid lobolo for Mathithibala. However, it isn’t clear if they are still together.
