Briefly reported that the Lockdown actress and radio presenter has resorted to going back to using Ndaba. If you go through her social media pages, those being Twitter and Instagram, she has also changed her surname to Ndaba.

Rumours of their split started when Sophie Ndaba apparently caught Max Lichaba, her husband, cheating on her. The two have been married for three years but when Sophie confronted Max's alleged side chick, she reveals that he said they are getting a divorce.

He had initially denied knowing the woman but Sophie's instinct did not allow her to take his word for it. She also allegedly threw him out of their rental home and she moved back to her estate in Johannesburg,  “She said she discovered that he was cheating on her with that woman and when she confronted him, he denied knowing this woman. But she felt that the man was making a fool of her,” a source told Surge Entertainement

According to Sunday World, the couple split last year March, a month after renewing their vows. When the couple was contacted by the publication, they both denied the rumours. “I don’t know what you are talking about,” said Sophie. Max said, “There’s no such thing.”

Last week, Sophie announced her radio gig which was with Radio Bop SA and she goes on air from 12 to 3PM. In the poster she shared, Sophie highlights that she would like to be addressed as Sophie Ndaba. This indicates that Sophie has dropped her marital surname.
Just after they had tied the know, Max reveals that he was warned not to put a ring on it. Speaking to Move, the businessman said, “someone even called my grandmother to tell her that my wife is bad for me, but I told my grandmother that all those people who are saying things about me live miserable lives.”

Sunday World revealed how the couple met, "when she [Ndaba] arrived there [at the Lichaba family business], she met Max and it was love at first sight. Max phoned her after a few days and expressed his undying love for her but she told him that she was seeing somebody else. He told her that he too was involved but was unhappy in his relationship and would end it to be with her."
