Unathi Nkayi’s relationship history

Unathi Nkayi with her ex Thomas Msengana

Unathi Nkayi was once married to Kaya FM radio presenter- Thomas Msengana aka Bad Boy T and the couple had two children- Sinako and Imbo Msengana.

After dating for some time, the two powerful media personalities exchanged vows in 2009 and although we thought that theirs was a marriage of wedded bliss and contentment, there was trouble in paradise and in 2017, news about their divorce came to light.

The SA Idols revealed that their marriage had come to its inevitable end after she found n*de photos and explicit chats of her husband with another woman on his phone.

Unathi Nkayi and Thomas Msengana’s divorce was finalized in 2019 and the two went their separate ways but they reportedly share custody of their children and they continue to co-parent. In one of her past Instagram posts, Unathi Nkayi declared that there was no bad blood between Bad Boy T and herself and that Bad Boy T remained the love of her life.

It is not clear if Thomas Msengana has moved on as he has kept a low profile since then, but it appears that Unathi Nkayi has been focusing on her career, her fitness, and her friendships- all of which are thriving.
