“She moved out about three weeks ago. She left Njilo and has gone back to hosting in clubs again with her friend Kim Kholiwe and making money. Just a few days ago, she was hosting at Booth Night Club, and she has put herself out there once again for the work that she used to do before she got married,” said the friend.

Another friend alleged that the couple was going through financial trouble. Njilo is reportedly entangled in a legal battle with two of his business partners and he owns them close to R1 million.
