Mihlali Ndamase shows off her engagement ring..
Mihlali is showing off a stunning ring on her finger! Recent rumors said that Mihlali Ndamase and her lover Leeroy Sidambe had already legally wed.
The rumors were strengthened when a few pictures from what appeared to be lobola discussions appeared on social media. Mihlali and Leeroy, however, didn’t confirm or deny the rumors.
Mihlali released a video on her Instagram stories on Friday afternoon while in the elevator, looking just as pretty as always and wearing a stunning ring.
Was this Mihlali’s confirmation that she got married? What are your thoughts?
Since it was revealed that Mihlali Ndamase and entrepreneur Leeroy Sidambe were seeing one other, the beauty influencer has drawn criticism from the public; some have even dubbed her a “homewrecker.”
Mihlali addressed the criticism she has been receiving in an exclusive conversation with Kaya FM.
“There’s just been a lot of talk and I’m like since I’m the hot topic let me own it,” she told Dineo Ranaka and Sol Phenduka.
Mihlali went on to say that “everyone is entitled to having their own opinions. That’s what you sign up for when you are in the public space. They are allowed to share and talk. “
The beauty influencer believes her work speaks for itself.
“I’m glad that I came into this space at a point where I was just about sharing my craft and that’s what it’s always been about. My personal life has nothing to do with my business.
“I don’t seek validation from people. Especially in that aspect. I really try and not let their opinions get to me and also, I feel like I’ve built a successful business at this point. Outside of all the noise and I’m just going to keep on going.”
Sol Phenduka also asked Mihlali about the negative PR she has received and how has it affected her brand.
“I do believe that there is to an extent. Because at the end of the day things that are said can have a bit of harm to your brand. But at the same time, it all depends on what you have established your brand on. Especially if your work speaks for itself and whatever it is that people are trying has nothing to do with how you’ve established your brand. Then it’s just going to be PR at the end.”
Since there has been no misconduct on her part, Mihlali has discussed this with the brands she collaborates with.
“I’ve had conversations with my brands and I haven’t done anything harmful at the end spoken ill of anything.
“Treat women better. Stop killing and stop abusing women, and stop raping women. There’s nothing wrong with consensual sex – you guys shame women for having consensual sex but at the same time you guys want to strip that away from women when it suits you. And I think respect women. Women are nurturers. They empower people and they give so much love so can you do the same for us.”
