Reality star and businesswoman Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco shared a Women’s Day message to the ladies via an Instagram post on Wednesday 10 August.


LaConco shared a message to her 259 000 Instagram followers in celebration of Women’s Day. She said that women should be embraced and celebrated everywhere and everyday. So, take a look…

“I’m not fragile like a flower, I’m fragile but like a bomb! A beautiful day I had yesterday, hope you enjoyed it too. A woman should be embraced and celebrated everywhere and everyday,” she captioned the post.

The reality star is former President Jacob Zuma’s “baby mama” and a star of Showmax’s The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD). However, she is revealed she is no longer in a relationship with Zuma on an episode of RHOD.

“No one gets into a relationship, especially if you are young, to face circumstances that I went through. I had to come to a point where I had to accept the situation and these are the circumstances. Okay this is it,” she said to co-star 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 continued.
