Sportscaster and reality TV star Andile Ncube’s lavish lifestyle has landed him in hot water with his late stepfather’s family. In an episode of “Young, Famous & Africa” Ncube was seen visiting his stepfather Elliot Magubane’s graveside.
The show also featured scenes from the ceremony of the unveiling of Magubane’s tombstone, leaving the Magubane family enraged.
In the show, Ncube is heard thanking Magubane for being a good father. In his speech, he also alludes to him being the new head of the family as he “steps into” his departed father’s “shoes”.
“My dad was a remarkable man, he was an amazing man to myself, my siblings – he taught me to be the father I am today,” Ncube said. In a recent interview with IOL Lifestyle sister publication Isolezwe, Magubane’s biological son Siphamandla Magubane said Ncube and his mother Nomsa Isabelle Chemane hosted the unveiling ceremony without Magubane’s biological children. Magubane, who died in 2017, was married to Chemane since 2009.
“We are shocked by Andile’s disrespect to go and film our father’s graveside without the family’s consent,” said Siphamandla. Siphamandla said Ncube and his mother were trying to swindle them of their inheritance, including three mansions and seven cars, including a Range Rover, which Ncube flaunts in the ‘Young, Famous & Africa’ series.
“There’s nothing as painful as this thing which has been done by Andile.
“We are still being troubled by the fight over the inheritance because his mother is refusing with some of the properties she was not supposed to take. Siphamandla said there were more secrets that they (family) had been keeping to show that Ncube and his mother were up to no good.
Among Magubane’s assets in contention were seven cars including two Land Rovers, a Mazda 2, a BMW i7 series and two Datsun Go.
His three reported homes are in Birchleigh North, Birch Acres and Blue Gill Estate. IOL Lifestyle reached out to Ncube’s management team for a response on the allegation. No response was received by the time of publishing.
