Nomfundo Ngcobo Controversy
Dumi Mkokstad was accused by a woman named Nomfundo Ngcobo of forcing her to have an abortion. An article was written on the Independent Online's Isolezwe in Zulu and later translated to English by the gossip website, ZAlebs. Nomfundo Ngcobo claimed that she briefly dated Dumi Mkokstad and had never had sex before him.
"We hooked up and then he took me to his place in Musgrave. In the house we found his brother sitting with his girlfriend. We chilled with them for a bit then they left us. That’s when Dumi took me to his room, pushed me onto his bed, began undressing me and had sex with me," Nomfundo Ngcobo told Isolezwe.
Nomfundo Ngcobo revealed that upon learning that she was pregnant Dumi Mkokstad insisted that she must terminate it and went as far as paying for the operation.

Dumi Mkokstad later wrote on Instagram, "He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favour from the Lord. Proverbs 18:22 NIV what shall I render to the Lord…. for He has done so very much for me. I have committed my Love and my Life to one woman.
"Ziphozenkosi Mthembu has made me the happiest Man on Earth right now. She accepted my love and cared not about everything that was said… cause She knows and Trusts the God in me. What a Woman!!! Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers Him out of all."
