Jessica Nkosi and TK tie the knot in the absence of her paternal family – report

The ceremony was not picture-perfect as Jessica Nkosi's family were reportedly not aware of their nuptials.

Media personality Jessica Nkosi and Uzalo actor Ntokozo ‘TK’ Dlamini are officially off the market.

However, there was drama surrounding their nuptials.


Jessica and TK had their Umembeso – a traditional Zulu wedding ceremony – on Friday, 23 December, donned in Zulu traditional attires.

It seems the newlyweds rekindled their love following reports the two split due to Dlamini’s infidelity in 2019.

Though the couple has not yet shared the news of their nuptials, Instagram gossip blog Maphepha Ndaba shared pictures and videos from the couple’s ceremony.

In the videos, the couple can be seen taking part in traditional activities.

Jessica’s paternal family not invited

Though the ceremony was picture-perfect, Jessica’s father’s family were not in attendance as they were not aware of their nuptials.

According to The South African, various sources – who did not want to be named – from Jessica’s paternal family, were shocked when they saw the wedding photos on social media.

A source apparently close to Jessica Nkosi’s paternal side, told the publication: “We saw it coming that she would not inform us about her wedding. Her maternal family probably accepted the lobola. We haven’t heard from her since the family asked about their relationship. Jessica shares the same clan surname ‘Dlamini’ with TK and the family wasn’t happy about that.

“According to our tradition, you cannot marry someone that you share the same clan surname with. When they asked her about this, she distanced herself from everyone.

“Ayanda is bitter, she was not like this before. She used to be a sweet girl who used to visit us when her father was still alive, but fame got into her head and she abandoned us,” said the source.

The Citizen’s attempt to reach Jessica Nkosi was unsuccessful at the time of publishing.
