Danny K’s wife of ten years is Lisa Gundelfinger, the daughter of one of South Africa’s most prominent divorce and criminal lawyers, Billy Gundelfinger. 

She is a former swimsuit model and a lawyer like her father and holds an LLB from the University of South Africa (UNISA). She reportedly works for Billy Gundelfinger Attorneys. 

The couple who started dating in early 2010 got married in April 2012, a few months after they got engaged during a candlelight dinner at the Londolozi game reserve, near the Kruger National Park.

Their wedding was a beautiful private wedding ceremony that was held at the Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West, Western Cape.

Danny K and his wife are parents to three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter. 

Their first son, Jayden was born in 2014, their second born in 2017, and the couple welcomed their daughter in 2022.

Danny K’s past relationships

Before his marriage to Lisa Gundelfinger, Danny K had been in a relationship with model  Lee-Ann Liebenberg for over six years and the two were even engaged but as fate would dictate, they never made it to the altar.

After their break up, Danny K went on to start a relationship with Lisa Gundelfinger while Lee-Ann Liebenberg went on to date businessman/ polo player Nicky van der Walt. Interestingly, Lisa Gundelfinger was Nicky van der Walt’s ex and tabloids were quick to pick on the swapping of partners.

Danny K attended the University of Witwatersrand from 1996 to 2000 where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Law and Political Science.

He attended Wits Business School from 2010 to 2011, where he earned a postgraduate degree in Business Management. He worked in an investment bank after graduating from Wits Business School.

His music career started at a low pace and he faced rejections by label records when he was only 17 years old.

Despite the initial rejection, Danny K did not give up on his music career and continued to try. A small independent label decided to give him a shot after hearing his demo Hurt So Bad. Hurt So Bad went on to become his first single, propelling him to overnight success.

Later, while in South Africa, Ladysmith Black Mambazo's British manager saw Danny K's video and decided to pitch him. The label signed him and Danny K went to London for two years to record his album. The rest, as they say, is history.
