One can also tell the businessman is wealthy by the way he lavishes money – as could be seen in the expensive wedding he had with his lover, Faith Nketsi.

Is Nzuzo Njilo Married?
Nzuzo Njilo is a married man since he got hitched to South African model, ‘twerker,’ and media personality Faith Nketsi. As a matter of fact, his relationship with the South African social media personality was what made him a popular figure. His personality went viral after he gifted Faith Nketsi, who was just his lover at the time, with a Range Rover. This kind gesture attracted the media and public attention.
The pair went on to tie the knot on the 10th of April, 2022, in a traditional way, and their wedding was the talk of the town as a result of how flamboyant the event was. Her bestie, Kim Kholiwe, was the first to share videos and reels of the wedding event and how it went down on her IG handle.
There have been rumors that their marriage paradise was beginning to have troubles in it. Fans began to suspect a divorce looming after Faith removed his name from her surname on her IG bio. But ‘Queen Twerk’ has cleared the air, stating that she only did that because her husband’s name is not in her identity documents yet. And promised that when her surname officially changed, she would update her fans.
Nzuzo Njilo’s Fraud
Not too long after Nzuzo Njilo’s beautiful wedding and honeymoon with Faith Nketsi, allegations of fraudulent activities were rained on him and his business. The reports were published on the 7th of June 2022, as he had been taken into police custody on the grounds of fraudulent activities.
It was said that he duped his business partners, Blaine Evans and James Stephens, in a deal that was worth almost R1 million. From the reports received from one of Njilo’s partners Blaine Evans, he claimed that a whooping sum of R978,104 was paid to Nzuzo’s Absa account via Lund Industries for the acquisition of copper concentrate from NN Chrome Mining, which is one of the businesses managed by Nzuzo.
He also added in his statement that Nzuzo promised to deliver the product but failed to keep to his end of the bargain. The case is in court, and on the 29th of July 2022, Bazuka Attorneys, the firm representing Lund industries, was authorized by a high court order to add his movable properties and sell them off to recover their money.
This, however, seems to have rendered the businessman bankrupt as the properties recovered from his house, which included his electronics and furniture, could only amount to about R350,000, which was barely up to his debt of R1 million.
And to add to the drama going on in the life of Nzuzo reports also emerged that the Range Rover he had given his wife, Faith, in 2021 was rented from a car dealer in Sandton.
