“He beat me to a pulp and caused my miscarriage”- Sithelo Shozi. “Not true” – says MamMkhize.
DJ, businesswoman and influencer, Sithelo Shozi almost broke the internet when she took to her Instagram page to shockingly reveal gruesome and disturbing details and allegations about her past and current relationship with RoyalAM president and musician Andile Mpisane, who is the father of two of her children. Andile is son to TV star and businesswoman Shauwn Mkhize, popularly known as “MamMkhize”.
Sharing these details through a Q&A session on her Instagram Stories, Sithelo posted recordings in which a voice she alleges to be Andile’s can be heard making several, shocking threats about keeping her child away from her as well as what sounded like a threat to her life.
“Yaz’yini, zokubone imihlolo. Angeke uyithole leyo ngane. Ngizokuquma mina manje,” says the voice heard on the recording. Loosely translated to, “you’ll never see that baby. I can find you now … Let me end this call and go arrange this hit. You ‘ll never be anything, you’ll always be beneath me until you die. You have nothing and will never have anything,” the voice says while a female voice, sounding like Sithelo’s, can be heard pleading with him to calm down and clarify himself.
She further went on to allege that Andile had physically assaulted her to a point where she suffered a miscarriage.
“I’m not one to speak out about ANYTHING concerning my private life, more especially where my kids are involved, but everyone has a breaking point and this narrative has gone too far. I’ve been silent for far too long and hid my truth for the sake of peace but today I will NOT be silenced,” she began to explain before alleging that Andile’s family was aware of the abuse she had allegedly been subjected to by him.
“Let’s start with when I was beaten into a pulp and had a miscarriage at the hands of my so called ‘victim’ in a room full of his family and friends, rushed to the nearest hospital and treated like nothing ever happened,” she continued before posting images of her bruised face and arm.
Sithelo also revealed that after allegedly being beaten by Andile – who surprised everyone when he got married in January this year, leaving her with a three month old baby – would shower her with gifts such as flowers to keep her silent.
Following Sithelo’s claims, TRUELOVE reached out to her but our messages went unanswered. We also reached out to Shauwn Mkhize’s publicity manager, who told us that MamMkhize will be releasing a statement rather.
Shauwn posted a statement strongly denying Sithelo’s allegations.
“I have been made aware of the allegations made against my family by Sithelo Shozi on her Instagram account, which have since been deleted. Given my history and strong stance against Gender Based Violence, I do not take these accusations lightly. I do not and will never condone violence in any form or nature,” the statement begins to read.
“I would like to categorically state that neither myself nor my family have been witness to any alleged abuse against Sithelo and further like to highlight that these allegations are false and defamatory,” the statement continues before ending with Shauwn saying that she will not be commenting further on the matter but will be handing it over to her legal team.
“Given the nature, severity and extent of these allegations the matter has been referred to my attorneys and from now henceforth they will be handling everything in relation to this matter. It is of utmost importance that we let the law take its course,” she continues.
