Lerato Kganyago has subtly responded to reports that she does not own the pricy hotel called 12 on Hillel Villa and Spa in Northcliff, Johannesburg. According to reports from City Press, Lerato allegedly lied about owning the hotel she claimed was gifted to her by her husband Thami Ndlala for Valentine's Day.

The hotel has a penthouse booking fee of R100 000 a night. Announcing the good news, Lerato said, “Welcome to my hotel and restaurant. Follow us! We are hiring and you are all welcome. So if you are looking for a job in a fancy hotel, Lerato has your back."

But according to sources who approached City Press, Lerato allegedly does not own the hotel. Instead, the sources claim that it is owned by her husband and two other business partners who opt to remain lowkey. Lerato is allegedly only the face of the hotel, nothing more.

"That Valentine’s Day gift noise that she made was just a publicity stunt. Thami did not buy her that hotel. She just featured as a face and used the opportunity because her fans were looking forward to her gift for this year since," the source was quoted as saying.

But now, Lerato has seemingly reacted to the claim and laughed it off saying she is getting free publicity.

Lerato has a lot to celebrate after bagging three nominations at the Basadi In Music awards nominations. She is nominated for DJ Of The Year award alongside DBN Gogo DJ Zinhle, Lamiez, and Lesego M.

Her second nomination is for Entertainment Radio Presenter Of The Year alongside Lebo Jojo Mokoena, Jabulile Vilakazi, Minenhle Masondo and Andele Mdoda.

Her third nod is for Mosadi in Business Achievement Award alongside DJ Zinhle and Dineo Ranaka.

Lerato is feeling grateful for this and so she penned a sweet message to her supporters, "Thank you to everyone that keeps nominating and voting for me, that’s already a BIG WIN for me! Thank YOU A blessed weekend to you ALL. See you at the #IAMWOMANExperience and Delicious Fest."

Lerato was at the center of a social media storm as she threatened to expose Musa Khawula.

Musa kept on referring to her as Bonang Lite but Ntsiki came to her defense.

"But...Lerato Kganyago is much more than a presenter, she also has a skill.... Djing. How can she be a lite version of someone she is doing more than???" she asked.

Lerato has threatened to expose Musa.
