Former The River actress Anele Zondo, popularly known as Ney The Bae, has hit back at claims that she and Ciza are in a romantic relationship.


At the weekend, the alleged couple set tongues wagging on X (formerly Twitter) after blogger Musa Khawula claimed that Ciza is cheating on the 30-year-old rapper – who is currently pregnant with her first child.

Ciza, real name Nkululeko Nciza, is an Afropop musician. He is also the son of Gauteng ANC provincial secretary Thembinkosi “TK” Nciza and Mafikizolo songstress Nhlanhla Mafu (formerly Nhlanhla Nciza).

In a post on Sunday, Musa shared a video of the Adje singer walking out of The Leonardo Hotel in Sandton with a woman he is alleged to be cheating with.

Another blogger, Sanele Nkosi, further alleged that Ciza, 22, and Anele started dating in 2020.


Responding to the claims on her X account, Anele said that they are false. The TV presenter denied that Ciza is the father of her unborn baby, or that they are romantically involved.

“Y’all r throwing stones at the wrong glass house [sic].”

In another post, he said: “Asijoli [We’re not dating] and he is NOT my BD [baby daddy]!”


Last month, Anele announced that she was expecting her first baby. Sharing images from her pregnancy photoshoot, the Ingwe hitmaker said she knew when she found out she was pregnant that her life would change.

“Finding out I was expecting was the most shocking and unexpected news of my entire existence. I felt I couldn’t breathe. I knew my whole life would change. I didn’t know what to do.

“As soon as I heard my bae’bie’s heartbeat, I knew it was meant to be. This is what I’m meant to do. Plans are changing and life is changing.

“More tears were shed everyday because my life is changing. And I also was planning on telling my team but did not know how to. My family supported me from day one. They were like ‘you are getting into your 30s, perfect timing’.”
