According to the Sunday tabloid, Phelo was assaulted by Moshe Ndiki, and he had to obtain an interim court order, but Moshe Ndiki had another story.

In his court papers, Moshe claimed that over the past few months the relationship had become abusive with Phelo assaulting him on several occasions. He claimed that Phelo had a drinking problem, and always starts fights after he's had too much to booze.

Moshe Ndiki Business

Moshe Ndiki has come a long way from his days as a YouTuber. The actor and TV presenter won many hearts with his authentic and funny YouTube clips and continues to gain thousands of fans across the country.

In 2018, he announced that he was starting his own production where he would be creating his own content.

I’ve started my own production company. And yeah, like I’m working around a cooking show, 13-part drama series, and I’m also going to be launching a ‘something range’ yeah, but it’s got to do with food. It might be a spice range, it might be an apron range,” he revealed on Afternoon Express.

Moshe Ndiki Controversy

Some love him and some hate him, but he really doesn't care because...well...he's Moshe Ndiki and he does and says what he feels.

The #UyangthandaNa presenter and actor had many of his followers rolling on the floor with laughter after he described how one of his ex's fling smelt like and let's just say it got really dirty.

Moshe Ndiki did not mince his words as he described the fling's odour.

On another occassion, Moshe Ndiki took to the Twitter timeline to share some images from his time at initiation school with acute memory about the nickname he had while there. 

Considering the uproar that ensued following the release of the award winning film, Inxeba, it was only a matter of time before the same happened to Moshe Ndiki as it is no secret that everything that happens "in the mountain" is supposed to be a secret.

While many found his post amusing and endearing, there were those who took the same stance as opponents of the film.

However, Moshe Ndiki had a classy response for those that felt offended by his post.

But it was this explicit clapback in which he compared one Twitter user to an uncircumcised penis that shut everything down. Ouch!!!

Moshe Ndiki has crossed  paths with Ntsiki and let's just say it was not pretty. Ntsiki blasted Moshe Ndiki for a tirade he launched against her on an episode of the Morning Flava, Metro FM's breakfast show, where he took a moment to drag the poet for what her body looks like. He seemed to be reacting to some of Ntsiki's nudes and he really had nothing nice to say about her body.

Not only did Moshe Ndiki repeat the tired jokes about Ntsiki not bathing, he continued to suggest that her body was unattractive and many of the listeners who were tuned in were not impressed.

Ntsiki was deeply offended and she wasted no time in getting in touch with Metro FM's station manager. While they apologised to her privately, they went on to "protect" Moshe and Ntsiki was left to pick up the pieces.
