Ayanda Ncwane spoke to All4Women about her exciting role on Real Housewives of Durban as well as the truth behind the drama with Nonku Williams.

If there’s one person who has captured the hearts and minds of viewers on Real Housewives of Durban, it’s definitely Ayanda Ncwane. The outspoken music industry star has been one of the highlights on the new show so far and every episode she gives us something to look forward to, whether its a quirky one-liner, some juicy drama or another one of her fabulous dresses (can we talk about her wardrobe another time please?). 

This week we had the pleasure of speaking to Ayanda Ncwane, who took a moment from running the music industry and running her home to answer a few of our most burning questions. 

Ayanda Ncwane is well on her way to establishing herself as one of Showmax’s biggest stars, but according to the first lady of Gospel, this is all nothing new to her!

Ayanda Ncwane: Tales of a Real Housewife

Q: Real Housewives of Durban has already broken streaming records on Showmax! Did you expect it to be such a hit?

Absolutely! Not bragging or anything. I’ve been anointed with favour of attracting  masses . Even in my business. People have an enormous appetite for Ayanda Ncwane, which I have come to embrace. 

Q: How did the opportunity to star in RHOD come about?  

After months of the casting director begging me to join the show, I decided to give it a shot. 

Q: Were you nervous about starring in a reality show for the first time?  

Absolutely not. I told the casting director that, if they are desperate to have me on the show, I won’t filter my true values, my true personality and my character. If it’s not what they want, I’ll be out in a second. 


Q: Everybody saw the drama playing out with Nonku… were you comfortable sharing this story with the country?  

It was not a new thing. We’ve always known my husband’s daughter. And had met her before. They disappeared because her mother was married to someone else. Reuniting with her was such a God moment as I was worried that she never got to come to her father’s funeral and get some closure.  

Q: You were both so mature about everything though, is everyone at peace with what happened in the past?  

Before we got married , Bab’Ncwane and I went on a separation for 8 months, that’s where they met. I think that the child was God’s plan. He told me when we decided to get back together that he met a lady and she got pregnant. But our love was strong, I accepted the situation from the beginning.


Look out for part 2 of our interview with Ayanda Ncwane where she will open up about the lighter side of her life, including her favourite fashion items, a few makeup tips and her favourite colour for toenails (p.s. Any toenails that are not this colour “freak her out”!)



Nonku Williams

RHOD: Drama in the Cape! Maybe Nonku shouldn’t have invited the ladies

Luckily things didn’t end as badly as they did with RHOJ, with our beloved Christall Kay allegedly being beaten to a pulp…

The Real Housewives of Durban are establishing their pecking order, and it is a really ugly business…


#RHOD Ayanda’s brother clears the air: Ayanda did not fake cry when her mother died

Although Ayanda and her family grieved mostly in private, the show did share some of the aftermaths of Ayanda’s grief including a moment where viewers say Ayanda faked tears and gave an unconvincing performance of grief on air…
