Not so long ago Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa were considered one of the best power couples in South Africa that half of Mzansi loved and admired and the other half were a little envious of their union.
And while we all thought that their union would last forever, it turns out that the universe had other plans for the couple as, after a few years of what we thought was wedded bliss, the two announced that they had parted ways.
Here is everything you need to know about Black Coffee and Enhle’s relationship highs and lows that will give you a perspective of where the relationship of these famous personalities currently stands.
Black Coffee and Enhle’s marriage
Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali got engaged in 2010 after dating for three months. The following year they made their marriage official in a traditional wedding ceremony and in 2017, they walked down the aisle and exchanged vows in a glamorous white wedding.
Even the couple seemed perfect for each other, like every marriage- theirs had issues too which were amplified given their celebrity status.
On several occasions, Black Coffee was accused of having extramarital affairs. The first cheating allegation came in 2013 when he was reported to be with an aspiring model.
Around this time, a woman identified as Lerato Motseke came up and demanded a ransom of R100,000 to keep her from releasing a s*x tape of the deejay. Lerato was arrested for blackmail but later confessed that the s*x tape she had been talking about didn’t actually exist.
In 2019, a fresh cheating accusation surfaced when Black Coffee was seen hanging out with David Guetta’s ex-wife, Cathy Guetta. Black Coffee dismissed the allegations saying that Cathy Guetta was nothing more than a business partner to him.

After unsuccessfully trying to make their marriage work, Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali called quits on their marriage of eight years and filed for divorce with Enhle citing infidelity on Black Coffee’s part for the divorce and she also claimed that Black Coffee had physically assaulted her.
The couple’s bitter divorce was highly publicized and as usual Mzansi keyboard warriors were quick to take sides and act as judges for the proceedings. The couple’s separation came to light after netizens noticed that Enhle had deleted all Black Coffee’s photos from her Instagram.

On 10th November 2019, Enhle broke the silence about her divorce through a video she shared on Instagram where she revealed that all she ever did in her marriage was try to be a great wife.
