Black Coffee has told people who have been prying into his private life to basically mind their own business. The music veteran, after months of speculation, finally broke his silence on his botched marriage to Enhle Mbali.
The first we heard from Black Coffee, after Sunday World broke the news of the couple’s tumultuous divorce, was a couple of days after Mbali had posted a video on Instagram, confirming the news.
“After much deliberation since the story of our relationship broke in public, I wish to state that we have been trying to sort our problems amicably and in private for almost a year now, and it has been the most heartbreaking and challenging period,” the DJ had wrote at the time.
Black Coffee would have thought that this message would grant him the privacy he’s pleaded for. However,it only exacerbated matters.
Black Coffee speaks out: Here’s what the DJ had to say
The rumour mill soon went into overdrive regarding the nature of Mbali’s relationship with her cleaner, his parents and even their children. This proved to be a lined crossed for the DJ, who in a recent interview, lashed out at the public for prying into the couple’s personal lives.
“With everything that has been going on in my personal life, and even though we have all made statements saying this is a private matter, people will still come because they feel entitled.
“I don’t feel I owe anyone anything. I am not the first person to be in this situation. No-one is dead. No-one is abused. Nothing terrible happened. We just decided this is where we want to be. But the public feel they should have a say, to a point where it is sometimes disrespectful,” he said
Enhle Mbali moves on with her life
Meanwhile, Mbali, weeks after posting the emotional divorce reveal, has apparently moved on to focus on other things in her life, like raising her children and bossing her work in the industry.
She recently attended the Glamour South Africa Women of the Year event, where she, like other female leaders in local entertainment, were honoured.
