Unathi Nkayi shows son’s face for the first time

Media personality Unathi Nkayi has finally shown her son’s face after 18 years.

Before her son’s 18th birthday, the mother of two has never shown her children’s faces on social media.

Taking to Instagram, the former Idols SA judge shared a series of photos of her son. The photos included photos of her, her son and his father, her ex-husband Thomas Msengana.





Unathi revealed that she was in labour for four days and had almost lost her son. She thanked God and her ancestors for protecting him. “Sitting here in front of me I can’t believe you’re 18. Daddy and I did it. You’re happy. Beautiful. And ours. I love you up to God Nako.
Four days of labour, we almost lost you but God namanyange said ANEVA ngesizukulo sethu (God and our ancestors said NEVER with our grandchild),” she said.

The former Kaya959 presenter stated that on turning 18 her son requested not to be protected by her anymore. “Moms I’m 18 now. You don’t have to protect me anymore. I can protect myself. You don’t have to hide my face anymore,” he said.

The 44 year old also thanked her son for being an amazing child to raise. “Enkosi Nako wam (Thank you my Nako). Thank you for making me grow up and have a purpose. Thank you for being who you are to Mboshla. Thank you for being a true testimony to Daddy’s and I’s LOVE PS,” the star added.
