It’s usually assumed that celebs live a highlife which is problem free. But that sometimes isn’t the case and in this article we will look at 5 South African celebrities who are in trouble.
1. Phindile Gwala
The Johannesburg High Court has reportedly demanded that “Imbewu: The Seed“ star Phindile Gwala Ngandu pay her electricity bill. Last year, the actress was taken to court for defaulting on the payments, which had grown to R100 000. After Gwala failed to settle the bill, Bramley Mews Body Corporate decided to take matters to the High Court, per City Press. The High Court has finally rendered its decision in the case of Phindile Gwala. A close source reports that the court has demanded that she pay the outstanding bill or face being cut off from the service indefinitely. 
2. Ayanda Thabethe
It appears that Peter Matsimbeh, the baby daddy of Ayanda Thabethe, has been in legal trouble for the past four years. According to City Press, Matsimbe has been accused of not returning and explaining the whereabouts of 10 luxury cars that belong to the Standard Bank.
Court documents obtained by a publication reveal that Matsimbe allegedly used fraudulent documents to purchase several vehicles, including a Mclaren MP4 coupé, a BMW X5 SUV, a Can–Am Maverick, an Audi Q3, a Nissan Navara, a Toyota Hilux, a Toyota Land Cruiser, a Lexus SUV, a Volvo mechanical horse, and a Lexus LX.
3. Faith Nketsi
South African socialite and reality TV star Faith Nketzi has been through a lot on social media over the last few days. The Have Faith star has been dealing with trolls ever since a local publication alleged that she had moved out of her marital home and is back to making money by hosting events to make money because her husband Nzuzo Njilo is broke. The news resulted in thousands of South Africans – mainly men – calling Nketzi names and degrading her as “non-marriage material”.
On Thursday this week, Faith tweeted about how South African men hate women but seemingly deactivated her Twitter account shortly after sharing the tweet. 
4. Thulani Motshweni
Bongani’s age comes under scrutiny due to his appearance and stature, representing the beard gang well; Twolaniey has been in his beard for the previous two decades. On 16 March, South African Black Twitter president @ChrisExcel sent shockwaves through Mzansi when he revealed that Thulani Mtshweni, the actor who plays the role of Ntokozo on Gomora, is 30 years old, according to Google. This revelation was met with disbelief by fans of the former Isidingo star, as the actor looks much older than 30 in real life.
However, according to SavannaNews, Thulani Mtshweni is aged 55. Born on 31 July 1968 in Tsakane, East Rand, Thulani was a late bloomer; unlike other soapie stars, he found his breakthrough late and first appeared on our television in 2015 at the age of 47. And that will be all for today thank you for watching.
