Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa got separated and divorced from Black Coffee not too long ago. After a long time out of the spotlight, relationship-wise, she has finally hinted that she is ready for some real love.
The actress recently took to Instagram to share a video she thinks of as an inspiration. It depicts the kind of love that she wants from her next relationship.
In the video, an old couple is seen napping while holding hands. The caption describes that the couple has been married for 53 years, and yet they still hold hands when they watch TV and fall asleep. They also have matching blankets.
Enhle reshared the video, which was initially posted by another page on Instagram, @majicallynews. She reshared it, simply captioning it “What I Want”. It couldn’t be more direct than that.
The actress has been single for a while now, at least that we know of. This is since she got divorced from the international award winning DJ, Black Coffee.
We can all remember the mess that was the divorce between the once power couple. They had so much drama in public, from shading each other in the tabloids, to Enhle being rumoured to have gone too broke to pay her electricity bills, that her family was living in darkness.
At one point, the two dragged each other to court, on the matter of spousal support. Black Coffee was reported to have rudely said to Enhle that she should work and pay her own bills, rather than wait for his money to support her. Ouch!

The saga was so messy that Enhle still considers it a thing she needs to heal from. And by that, we don’t just mean the gnarly divorce, but the marriage itself as well.
Speaking to The South African, she opened up on how toxic and abusive her marriage to Black Coffee was. She said the justice system failed her terribly, as they bought a lie that the DJ told them about not abusing her.
“This man lied in the court of law. Saying he went under my arm, as tall as he is when he knows very well that he hit me. He struck my hand twice and pushed me into our marital property. I don’t feel safe as he is also psychologically messing with my children. Which is why I had to stand up and fight for myself. He called my children, telling them to stop this whole case. And my child was crying. My child told me that he doesn’t feel like a child anymore. Because of the divorce, because he's got new siblings and so many other things,” she said.
We are glad that she finally sees some light at the end of the tunnel, and sees now that love doesn’t have to be painful and toxic. We hope she finds what she wants.
