What is Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa’s Age Now?
Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa is 35 years old presently. The actress, fashion designer, and businesswoman was born Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa, on March 3, 1988, in Johannesburg, South Africa. She is the only child of award-winning celebrity makeup artist and gender equality activist Bongi Mlotshwa.
There is no information on who her father is or what he does for a living, but we know she has a step-sister named Tidimalo Sehlako from her father’s side. Enhle is a South African woman of Black African ethnicity.
For her tertiary studies, Enhle attended the University of Johannesburg, where she studied and obtained a degree in Fashion Design. She later went to the United States to study Film and Theater Performance at the renowned Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in Boston, New York.
Enhle Mbali was DJ Black Coffee’s Wife from 2011 to 2019
One of the highlights of Enhle’s fame was her brief but controversial marriage to New York-based South African DJ, Black Coffee. Nobody knows how the duo met, but it was likely in the course of work as they are both entertainers that move in the same industry.
They met sometime in early 2010 and dated from that time until the late part of the year. They then got engaged and had their traditional wedding in 2011. The lobola ceremony took place in Soweto, Enhle’s hometown.
Enhle and her husband didn’t do a white wedding ceremony until 6 years later, in 2017. At the wedding, Enhle was walked down the aisle by her young sons, aged 5 and 2. Their marriage was fruitful, and she birthed two boys—Anesu and Asante, born in 2012 and 2015, respectively. The marriage was relatively peaceful for its first few years, but a few years later, the relationship began to generate a lot of friction.
After Roughly 8 Years of Marriage, Enhle and DJ Black Coffee Called it Quits Amid Intense Controversy
In 2019, Enhle Mbali went on a deleting spree, removing all pictures of her then-husband from her social media pages. The rumored reason for the divorce was DJ Black Coffee’s incessant infidelity. The reports stated that he had been cheating on his wife for almost the entire duration of their marriage and fathered several children with other women.
While DJ Black Coffee never denied nor confirmed the allegations, it didn’t stop Enhle from moving out of their home with the kids. The divorce was finalized later that year. At first, it was suspected that Black Coffee was in a romantic relationship with a woman named Cathy Guetta, the ex-wife of American DJ David Guetta.
However, Black Coffee came out to deny that specific rumor, saying they were only business partners and would continue to remain so. Add to this a sex tape scandal and the emergence of two baby mamas, and Enhle was decidedly fed up. Both of them later headed to court to settle their custody dispute.
According to the information available on the internet, Mbali initially wanted a sum of R100k for child support and maintenance, in addition to other demands. At the end of the case, the court awarded her R60k monthly. So far, it looks like both parties have been keeping to their end of the deal.
Enhle Mbali is a Successful Actress and Entrepreneur
The mother of two was only 17 years old when she landed her first-ever television role. She appeared in a SABC 1 series titled Mtunzini.com. She starred as the lead in another TV drama titled Tshisa, also produced by the SABC. By this time, she was already getting popular and had plenty of greenlight from movie producers.
Other screen productions that have featured Enhle include Moferefere Lenyalong, Rhythm City, Soul City, iNkaba, Rockville, Those Who Can’t Teach, My Family, and 7 de Laan. In 2009, she made a crucial career switch and dabbled into television presenting. She famously hosted the Channel-O’s Award ceremony.
She did this again with the ANN7’s show called StarBiz. Her successful foray into TV presenting solidified her status as a multi-talented and versatile entertainer. Currently, Enhle is a businesswoman. In 2020, she bought shares in a popular cosmetics company called Labello Beauty.
Before this, she launched a maternity clothes line, SE Preggoz, in New York and South Africa. If there is no other evidence to show that Enhle knows what she is doing, then take her $20 million net worth as proof.
