A few years ago, Black Coffee was in a high-profile marriage with one of the most beautiful women in South Africa’s entertainment scene. Unfortunately, like most celebrity marriages, theirs too ended in tears.

Here is a look at who Black Coffee’s wife was, their grand wedding, their bitter divorce and a quick look at the couple’s children.

Black Coffee’s wife, now ex-wife, and the mother of his children, is actress Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa. She is a renowned actress, television presenter, and fashion designer.

Enhle studied Fashion at the University of Johannesburg before moving to the USA where she pursued a course in Filming at a university in Boston and another course in Performance at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, New York.

She has appeared in several television series including Scandal, Rhythm City, Soul City, and Tshisa just to name a few. She has also hosted some of the biggest shows in the country including Young, Gifted, and Black.

Besides her work in front of the camera, the multi-talented media personality has also made a mark in the fashion industry. She launched her maternity fashion line called SE Preggoz in 2015 with branches in South Africa and New York, USA.

According to sources, Enhle and Black Coffee first started dating in 2010. It is unclear when and how they met, but it appears that Black Coffee popped the question to Enhle in 2010 and she said yes.

After going public in 2010, the lovebirds wasted no time in proving to the world that they were serious about each other and the following year, Enhle Mbali officially became Black Coffee’s wife after the couple had their traditional wedding at Enhle’s home in Soweto.

Years after their traditional wedding, Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali held a one-of-a-kind white wedding on the 8th of January 2017. 

The bride who was walked down the aisle by her mother who is the famous make-up artist- Bongi Mlotshwa, was dressed in a gorgeous gown that was designed by Gert-Johan Coetzee while the dashing groom wore a black suit with a white blazer.

The wedding reception was held at Sun City and it was organized by Sophie Ndabaa’s events company called Sophia events. It was attended by the couple’s family and famous friends in the entertainment industry.


Black Coffee’s divorce


Even though Black Coffee and Enhle were seen as one of the top power couples in Mzansi who were loved and admired by many and envied by a few, like all relationships, theirs too wasn’t immune to challenges.

After unsuccessfully trying to patch things up, Black Coffee and his wife called quits and filed for divorce in 2019.

While their two weddings had been all rosy and beautiful, their divorce was certainly not as the two aired their dirty laundry for all to see.

Black Coffee’s wife accused the deejay of causing her physical, emotional, and financial abuse during their marriage and she further accused him of having extramarital affairs. Black Coffee denied all these allegations.

Although the two were reported to have gotten back together in 2021, Enhle denied the speculations but despite their ugly breakup, it appears that Black Coffee and Enhle are now in a better place. When Black Coffee won his first Grammy award, Enhle Mbali took to social media to congratulate him on his big win.

The gifted deejay also has two other sons from previous relationships called Lilitha Maphumulo and Esona Maphumulo. He allegedly has two other unnamed children who were born out of wedlock during his marriage with Enhle.
