Besides being paid the big bucks for entertaining us on the soccer field, soccer players’ lives often get splashed across tabloid pages for sensationalist reasons- speeding fines, love lives gone wrong and many other reasons.
And just like rappers and DJs, soccer players do not have the squeakiest of reputations — often associated with a string of women in every city they’ve set foot in. All of this while some of them are in serious relationships with partners who continue to be their cheerleaders through all the bad and good publicity.
Very little is known about the girlfriends and wives of these soccer stars; exactly the reason why Mzansi Magic is introducing this brand new reality show that promises to give us insight into the lives of these wags.
The Diski Divas are Mamelodi Sundown’s midfielder Teko Modise’s ex wife Felicia Modise, Tekelo Rantie’s partner Gigi Pule, former Big Brother Mzansi’s Katlego ‘Kat’ Mohoaduba who dated former Kaizer Chiefs player Jimmy Tau, fitness trainer Nonhle Ndala, who is currently dating Andile Jali, a former Orlando Pirates midfielder who now plays for K.V. Oostendeand also in the mix will be Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Bernard Parker’s wife Wendy Parker.
Diski Divas, which starts on Sunday 12 April at 6pm, will show what happens behind closed doors when these wives and girlfriends have to deal with the pros and cons of dating famous men.
“Viewers will also witness what it takes to live in this high stakes world – the drama, the back-stabbing, the fear of losing it all in one quick move. In short, Diski Divas will show what it takes for soccer’s royalty babes to get their hustle on,” said Mzansi Magic in a press statement.
