In a surprising turn of events, the once-happy marriage of media personality Faith Nketsi and her husband, Nzuzo Njilo, has reached its final stages, marked by a divorce announcement on social media. The couple, who tied the knot in a private traditional ceremony featured on Faith’s MTV Base reality TV show “Have Faith” in April 2022, is now navigating the challenging process of separation.
In a statement shared on Thursday, Faith Nketsi expressed the sadness surrounding their decision to part ways. “No one gets married with the intention to get divorced. However, through careful consideration and mediation, we have decided to go our separate ways,” she stated. Despite the impending divorce, Nketsi acknowledged Njilo as an “amazing father” to their daughter, Sky, whom they plan to co-parent.
The couple’s relationship struggles were not hidden from the public eye, as viewers of “Have Faith” witnessed Faith’s move back to her mother’s home in the first episode. The show also featured her consultations with a lawyer regarding divorce and custody arrangements for their daughter.
The mystery surrounding the breakdown of their marriage deepened, with no clear indication of what led to the decision. However, headlines linking Faith Nketsi to her husband’s alleged shady business dealings have been persistent since their union. Reports from Sunday World suggested that Njilo defrauded Nketsi shortly after their wedding, involving the proceeds from the sale of her vehicle.
Faith Nketsi addressed the media speculation on social media, emphasizing her decision to keep her personal life private. “I would never do an interview about my personal life, nor would I ever go to newspapers to justify or ‘tell my side of the story,'” she declared. The TV star distanced herself from public disputes, stating, “I’m also not with the catty fights on social media. There’s more to life, and I respect people.”
Nzuzo Njilo’s legal troubles, including accusations of defrauding a woman and arrest for failing to deliver goods valued at nearly R1 million, have added complexity to the narrative. As the divorce proceedings unfold, the public is left to speculate on the true nature of the challenges that led to the end of Faith Nketsi and Nzuzo Njilo’s once-publicized union.
