Minnie Dlamini is set to take the hot seat in her upcoming TV roast on Showmax in April. And nothing is off limits for the media personality, including her alleged link to billionaire businessman Edwin Sodi.

The ANC-affiliated “tenderpreneur” is known for allegations of both his controversial business deals and his long “hit list” of beautiful women.

Just days after hosting his 50th birthday at his R85 million Bryanston mansion last year, Sodi was linked to a R250 million tender probe ordered by President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Earlier this year, Sodi – who has been previously arrested on charges of corruption, fraud, and money laundering – was slapped with a R400 million tax bill.

Just months after Minnie Dlamini announced her split from husband Quinton Jones, she became the topic of rumours linking her to Edwin Sodi. This, after she posted pictures of her reportedly using his private jet for a luxury holiday trip.

According to celebrity blogger Musa Khawula, Sodi was allegedly the reason for Minnie and Quinton’s split.

In a social media statement, Minnie also denied the “false, damaging, and malicious” claims.
