Popular Lesedi FM presenter Nkunyana Nkunyana – affectionately known as Skuzabell, is trending after he was nabbed for allegedly assaulting his estranged wife.

The radio host was released on R1 000 bail after appearing before the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court last week.


Sunday World reports that Nkunyana’s arrest came against his alleged fallout with his wife. After their alleged separation, the bubbly radio host reportedly vacated their marital home in Arkata.

However, the radio host went on to stay around Arkata in Raceway, which is not far away from his marital home. Against this arrangement, the radio host allegedly drove back to his marital home to repossess some of their possessions, including expensive couches.

An argument ensued, which later saw the radio host allegedly assaulting his wife over couches. However, reports have it that the wife refused with the couches because their two children were using them. The argument later ended up in the courts.

The mole said, “Nkunyana insisted on removing the couches, and when his estranged wife tried to stop him, he allegedly slapped her several times in the face.” The source added, “They loaded them and left afterwards.”

However, Nkunyana’s next court appearance is on 2 May. No doubt the story has since thrust the radio host into top trends. However, the Lesedi FM’s presenter was unavailable for comment at the time of writing.

On the other hand, NPA Free State confirmed the reports. Speaking to the media, NPA Free State spokesperson Mojalefa Senokoatsane confirmed the arrest.


Rumour mill has it that their fallout came against the backdrop of a string of infidelity and cheating allegations. The two have been together for years. However, their marriage has been marred with abuse.

Close sources to the couple have it that Nkunyana’s wife has often engaged several people to help them, but nothing materialised until their alleged fallout. Rumour mill has it that she even approached Lesedi FM complaining about Nkunyana’s alleged behaviour, but nothing changed.

Addressing the incident that has since thrust the public broadcaster into top trends, SABC made it known that Lesedi FM management was unaware of the allegations against the host.

However, Nkunyana hasn’t appeared on air since his arrest. The station is yet to issue a press release addressing the allegations.
