What is Phindile Gwala’s Husband’s Nationality?

Phindile Gwala’s husband, Armando Ngandu, is a citizen of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). He was in the Central African country on June 28, 1988. Not much is known about his family, background, and upbringing.

It, however, appears he was born into a low-income family, which probably necessitated his relocation to South Africa in search of greener pastures. He once mentioned that when he initially came to South Africa, things were so tough for him.

Armando completed his basic education levels in his home country before moving to South Africa. He studied IT in Congo and has some experience in the restaurant business. He previously worked as a waiter, barman, and host for clubs back home. That was how he was able to gather his knowledge about food and running a club.

Armando Ngandu is a Fashion Model, DJ, and Businessman

Phindile’s husband launched the first phase of his multifaceted career as a fashion model upon arriving in South Africa. His brother Jason Ngandu introduced him to the modeling business, sparking his intense interest in the field.

It was initially difficult for Ngandu to climb the ladder of success in the modeling profession because it is a naturally competitive field. However, after many years of commitment to the trade and consistency, he finally began to see results.

He has worked with numerous businesses ever since he first achieved popular success as a fashion model. Boss Models is one of the well-known modeling agencies he has worked with.

Phindile’s husband is currently in charge of one of their family’s businesses – Lotha’s Vehicle Wash and Shinsa Nyama. The duo established the business before they got married and it’s been doing well since.

Armando and his wife coined the name of the business from their kids’ names Lola and Thato. Some of the services offered by the brand include car wash, food, grills, music, and other fun activities.

He has achieved so much success since he branched out from modeling into other endeavors. He may not be as famous as his wife, but there’s no denying the fact that he is an accomplished model and businessman. 

Phindile Gwala and Her Husband Armand, Met for the First Time in 2016 

Phindile and her husband met for the first time in 2016 at a parking lot of one of the nightlife centers in Rosebank, Johannesburg. The model was blown away by her beauty that he couldn’t resist the urge to ask for her contacts that same night.

Despite Armando’s attempts to have his way, Phindile refused to oblige because she was not certain if the model came after her because of her fame. Unknown to her, Ngandu was not aware of her celebrity status and so decided to let Phindile be after she still refused to give him his contact.

An unfazed Armando subsequently found out that Gwala is a prominent actress. He would slide to her DM and the rest became history. The actress mentioned in an interview that she declined to give her now husband her contact on that fateful day because she was not sure if he had genuine feelings for her.
