In this show, “Jiva,” the Durban girl has to survive through tough competition and family issues to excel in the aggressive world of performing art.

It seems like Bontle Modiselle and her sisters were destined to make their way into the entertainment industry. Their dad was a model. Unfortunately, he committed suicide.

Ricardo Moloi, aka Priddy Ugly, had been Bontle Modiselle’s boyfriend since the end of his matric year. They had been friends since she was 16 years old, and used to chat on the platform MXit when it was still “it.” 

Looking back to the time before they started dating, Bontle Modiselle confessed that she didn’t think Priddy Ugly would ever like her because she came from a very humble home and dressed modestly. However, while other girls in her dance group, “the reps,” also had their eye on Priddy Ugly, fate chose to put them together, and their relationship is still going strong 14 years down the line. 

Bontle Modiselle’s wedding to Priddy Ugly was a beautiful African-inspired ceremony. The couple took us all by surprise when they tied the knot three days after sharing their plans to get hitched. 

Does Bontle have any children?

While it is clear that she is doing very well in her professional life, Bontle Modiselle is doing equally well in her personal life. In November 2019, Bontle Modiselle became a mom, the same year she got married. Priddy Ugly and Bontle Modiselle’s child’s name is Afrika. Like a typical mom, her antics are not only showcased on her Instagram page but also Afrika’s very own Instagram page - @afrika_with_love.  

While the media documented Bontle Modiselle’s baby journey, there was one thing she kept to herself. Bontle Modiselle’s road to conceiving her child was not as easy as everyone had previously thought. She had suffered two miscarriages in the past and made her fans aware of this through Instagram.  

She also revealed that although she danced through most of her pregnancy, it took time to fall in love with all the imperfections of her body. This truly body-positive post showed how she valued the time with her child more than being worried about these vain concerns.
