Since then, he’s become a mainstay in the SA entertainment scene.

He’s accomplished a lot at such a young age. What do you know about this popular and talented singer? Let’s find out.

He was keen to get his name out there and make a career for himself. His breakthrough eventually came in 2016. King Monada’s song, “Ska Bhora Moreki,” was his claim to fame. Since then, he’s worked with top SA artists and producers, such as Tshego, Gigi Lamayne, Blaq Diamond, Kabze de Small.

  • Relationships

    King Monada was the talk of the town for having two beautiful women in his life. King Monada’s first wife and baby mama is Lerato Ramawela. You can find YouTube videos of King Monada’s wedding with Ramawela. He’s also in another relationship with Cynthia Ntebatse Lion, who’s rumoured to be his fiancé. In addition, he’s a proud father of three – eight-year-old Temoso, a baby boy named Junior and an 11-year-old (his child with his ex-girlfriend Sharon Masia. Sharon filed a court case against Monada for lack of child support).

  • News and Controversy

    King Monada’s household setup is a rather interesting one. His wife and baby mama live under the same roof. Even before she moved in, it was common knowledge that Cynthia Ntebatse Lion was his girlfriend. She worked at the Greater Letaba Municipality in Limpopo. She is from Modjadjiskloof, formerly known as Duiwelskloof, in Bolobedu district. He not only introduced Lion to his wife Lerato Ramawela from Lenyenye town’s Tickyline village but married her too. 

    At the same time, King has made it clear that he loves his first wife. He has flaunted her on his social media page. He even bought her a grey VW Polo as a gift! She is a doting wife and the mother of his children. 

    News of this polygamous relationship became public knowledge after he posted a selfie on his Facebook page. The picture had him, his wife Ramawela and Lion, and he captioned it with ‘King and Queens’. He ended that note with a love emoji!

    He uploaded another selfie with both women in a car, along with a young boy. We think that’s his son. It would make sense, as King Monada captioned it with ‘family’, along with a love emoji. 

    King Monada married Ramawela first. She met him a long time ago before he became famous in 2016. In September 2020, news filtered through that King Monada left his second wife, Lion.

    Cars

    Here’s a man who rides in style! He owns a fleet of German cars, including a CLK 350 Merc, Viano Marc, C63 AMG Merc, and a BMW M4 sedan.
