When Minnie Dlamini and her husband Quinton Jones filed for divorce in February, the hashtag #UnbecomingMrsJones quickly trended.
After four years of marriage, the couple announced their divorce in a joint statement.
“After months of separation and consultations with our family and a counselor, we have taken the decision to officially file for divorce,” the couple said.
Minnie has remained silent since then, despite several theories about why their marriage ended. In September, the media personality opened The Mansion in Centurion, a luxurious bar lounge.
“I’m excited to be putting the biggest names in music in this place, but also emerging new talent, which is very important, and to be a part of the culture of growing this industry in the way that actually puts money in artists’ pockets,” Minnie said.
Minnie purchased a portion of the luxury venue, which seats over 300 people, and has been planning the venture for nearly a year.
“After the lockdown, business was horrible for people who were gigging, hosting events and all that … so now that the country is open … the more establishments we have, the more artists we’re able to book and we’re able to get our industry back on its feet again.”
Minnie spoke with YouTuber Nono D about her series InShot and revealed that she wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty when she was first learning the craft.
Her company, she explained, does digital campaigns for brands such as Jaguar in addition to TV broadcasts.
“I’m excited to be creating groundbreaking content that involves everyday people, how do we put ourselves on screen, celebrate who we are, and those are the things always at the back of my mind.”
