Cheating Allegations

Wicknell Chivayo and Sonja Madzikanda Divorce

Controversial businessman Wicknell Chivayo and Sonja Madzikanda have decided to part ways after seven years of marriage, marking the end of their tumultuous union.

Rumors surrounding Chivayo’s alleged involvement with South African influencer Mihlali Ndamase have surfaced, which he has vehemently denied. However, amidst these speculations, Madzikanda took to Instagram to address their separation, stating that Chivayo is free to pursue whatever he desires as they are no longer together.

Madzikanda revealed that although they had initially planned to make their divorce public in May, they were prompted to announce it earlier due to the mounting concerns over infidelity rumors. Despite some unresolved matters, she emphasized that they are moving forward with their decision to end their marriage.

Their relationship, which began with an intimate ceremony in 2017 accompanied by a reported bride price of US$50k, has been marred by public disputes aired on social media. However, Madzikanda’s recent statement serves as a final confirmation of their separation, urging people to respect their individual paths moving forward.

Black Magic Allegations

Paternity Test

Madzikanda also revealed why she had a paternity test done on her son with Chivayo when he was born. In response to a question from an Instagram follower, she explained that her son was born in the United States, and Chivayo could only stay for two weeks because of business. As a result, it was all left up to her to file paperwork for John’s passport and NI number. Sonja explained that because the name on the birth certificate was John Chivayo and her legal name was still Sonja Madzikanda, a paternity test was required to prove that Wicknell was indeed the father of John.
