Cape Town - Local actress Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa has released an official statement following reports that her husband DJ Black Coffee (Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumulo) fathered two children out of wedlock.

According to City Press, several sources confirmed that the DJ fathered two children - aged 12 months and 14 months.

The shock revelation, along with claims of emotion abuse, allegedly pushed Enhle to file for divorce in the Johannesburg High Court in October.

Enhle, whose only statement has been an emotionally fueled Instagram video on 11 November, released a second statement on the photo-sharing app on Tuesday.

"I have not gone to the media and will continue on this trend. No comment. I have had to explain the unexplainable to my children which is really unfair. I once again ask for silence in the time. Please. Not for me, but for my children," she wrote.

Enhle's celebrity friends have taken to the comment section of the post to offer messages of support including Lady Skollie, Tumi Morake and Blue Mbombo. 

Black Coffee and Enhle tied the knot during a traditional wedding ceremony in 2011 and celebrated their union with a white wedding in 2018. 

The couple have two children together, and the DJ has two children from a previous relationship. 

City Press first reported in July that the couple were allegedly heading for divorce court, citing the DJs rumoured infidelities and meddling family members as the reason for Enhle serving her husband with divorce papers.
