Many of us met Gogo Maweni when she took her alleged baby daddy to Moja Love’s Papgeld a couple of years ago and since then, the traditional healer has been making headlines.
The traditional healer whose real name is Makgotso Lee-Anne Makgopo has managed to build a fan base for herself. in 2019, she bagged a reality show on Mzansi Magic that follows the lives of modern traditional practitioners.
The reality show which is titled Izangoma Zodumo became an instant hit and naturally, Gogo Maweni became the breakout star of the show.
A couple of weeks ago, Gogo Maweni made headlines when it was revealed that she was allegedly SK Khoza’s baby mama after videos of the actor acting erratically surfaced online.
Upon seeing the videos, social media users took a deep dive into her personal life and found old posts that made them believe that she allegedly might somewhat be responsible for his bad behavior, a claim which she vehemently denied. In one of her older social media posts, she wrote, “I don’t have baby daddy issues. All issues were settled in my nduma! The outcome was to leave them with nothing…if my kids don’t “eat” no one eats – do the math!”

In an interview on Gagasi FM, Gogo Maweni cleared her name and denied any involvement, “For those who don’t know, I supported him financially and emotionally. I have never seen this side of him and I cannot comment on his behavior because there are things that I cannot speak about regarding him.”
In the same interview, the sangoma said that she would be willing to help him even though they are no longer a couple, “I will be willing to assist. Sthembiso is the father of my child. I don’t hate him and I don’t like seeing him do all these things and to be honest, I was hurt. To be honest he was one of the people who pushed me to accept my ancestral calling. I don’t want to and he said you need to go through this and I will support you.”
Shortly after that, we found out that Gogo Maweni has pet snakes and that left the whole country intrigued.

This is not the first time a castmate of the popular show has made headlines, last year, former castmate Baba Ngwemabala released a statement after being involved in drama with her initiates who accused her of ill-treating them. In the statement, she said, “If at all, I mistreated you as you mention with hard allegations, take me to court or ngibophiseni (get me arrested) otherwise going to to help people who wanna destroy me will not bring justice. It’s sad that my initiates dragged me here. Why didn’t you find someone else. It’s sad seeing you fall into these traps. Use the right channels,” she said at the time.
