Former Isibaya actress Asavela Mngqithi-Mqokiyana has called out her father, Manqoba Mngqithi, who is the head coach of Mamelodi Sundowns for being a deadbeat dad.
Sultry South African actress and model, Asavela Mngqithi comes from a family of high achievers. Asavela, who is best known for her role as Ntwenhle and Amogelang in the television serials Isibaya and Abomama, is the daughter of Mamelodi Sundowns Coach, Manqoba Mngqithi.
She’s never cool with her dad. That is not always the case though, more so when the father is absent, or hasn’t really contributed much to the up bringing of their daughter. Asavela Mqokiyana, née Mngqithi, who recently got married can attest to this. The talented actress is the daughter of the lead trainer and director of football giants, Mamelodi Sundowns, Manqoba Mngqithi.
When so many kids with famous parents are living large, that is not the case for Asavela. She took to Twitter to drop a bombshell that her success has nothing to do with her father’s money. Asavela put it out there that Mngqithi should not be credited for her hard work and any achievement because she made it without his input.
“Whatever I have/will still achieve never credit all my hard work to manqoba mngqithi and his money. Ngihluphekile ngaphumelela engekho. If you have an opinion or inkinga Cela uyidle,” Asavela said.
Asavela’s tweet was met with lots of negativity from tweeps who called her disrespectful. Others told her not to speak negatively about her fathers and rather forgive him.
Asavela and her husband Mqokiyana, are doing amazing things since they got married back in April. The couple recently showed off their mansion which they built together. She took to Instagram to state that she is proud to tell the world that they have now built themselves a home.
