Published

on

 

Nomzamo Mbatha’s fairly discreet residence in Los Angeles has proven to be a massive success. The South African actress has been announced as part of the cast on Coming 2 America! 

She joins Garcelle Beauvais as one of the new characters on the sequel, which will find Prince Akeem return to the States to find a son he didn’t know about.

The 29 year old actress, who’s spent the past year globetrotting in between her activist duties as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and her pursuit of a big Hollywood break, will be portraying a role whose details are yet to be revealed.

The film will be starring Eddie Murphy, returning as the spoilt African Prince of fictional African nation of Zamunda, as well as a slew of Hollywood A-listers, including Wesley Snipes, Tracy Morgan, Leslie Jones and Kiki Layne.

The original movie came out in 1988

Mbatha recently opened up about her time in Los Angeles, California – revealing that she’s bought herself a nice little apartment. She’s also been getting accent coaching while there.

The future of her role on Mzansi Magic’s Isibaya as Thandeka remains uncertain, but there’s been no definite word on whether or not she will be returning to the arms of her fictional hubby, S’bu.

Nomzamo Mbatha has also previously starred on e.tv’s Umlilo, where she tackled a different side of her craft as a villian. Her first big cinema debut was on the South Africa romantic film Tell Me Sweet Something.

Black Coffee Asks For Privacy During Divorce From Enhle

Black Coffee and Enhle have asked for privacy during “heartbreaking” and “challenging” divorce.

Black Coffee and Enhle Divorce

South African DJ Black Coffee has asked the public to afford his family some privacy during his highly publicised divorce from Enhle.

The 43 year old House music DJ and producer, who recently made headlines when he hung out with Drake during one of his resident shows in Ibiza, in the process sparking speculation of a collaboration, on Wednesday took to social media to share a heartfelt statement about his ongoing divorce.

“I wish to state that we have been trying to sort out our problems amicably and in private for a year”, he revealed in the statement. Adding, “It has been the most heartbreaking period and challenging period.”

“As Mbali has stated, our priority are to protect our children at this point [sic]. This is now a court matter. We ask for privacy.”

The statement comes a few days after the actress confirmed that the couple is officially going their separate. Prior to this, Black Coffee had maintained silence on the divorce.

Responding to an article confirming the divorce in the Sunday papers, Enhle took to Instagram to share a heartfelt video about the situation.

“I’ve been getting called by journalists a lot lately, and I’ve stuck by my ‘no comment’. It works for me”, she said in the video, barely able to hold back tears.

“I would like a bit of space with regards to questions and so forth. “I do believe the system will do what is due and what is fair.”

“It has been a long couple of years for me, and it all of that, all I ask is for silence. Not for me, or anyone else, but for my children. Everything I’ve done, to this day, is to protect my children.”

“All I’ve ever tried to do was to be a great wife, a supportive wife, one that is respectful. Not only to my partner, but also to everyone around him.”

“It has been a very rough year, but I still stand tall and proud. It is indeed a situation no one ever wants to see themselves in, but here we are.”

Black Coffee and Enhle have two children together.
