Real Housewives of Durban star Nonkanyiso LaConco Conco was the fourth celebrity to be unmasked on the fourth episode of Masked Singer South Africa season two, which aired on S3 (formerly known as SABC 3) on Saturday 27 April.


Reality star LaConco, who shares a child with former President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, was the latest celebrity to be unmasked on Masked Singer South Africa season two. LaConco was hiding under the mask of Star and she had all the detectives scratching their heads! None of the Masked Singer South Africa detectives – J’Something, Somizi Mhlongo, Sithelo Shozi and Skhumba Hlophe – were able to guess the identity of Star.


This week, viewers met the last four of the original 16 masks competing for a spot in the fun-filled show’s upcoming Top 12 round. First, Boombox amped up the competition against the majestic Owl, where after Star tried to outshine the supposedly scary but mega-cute Monster. Following Star’s departure, Owl, Monster and Boombox joined Wildebeest, Giraffe, Blue Crane, Butterfly, Diamond, Gold, Mielie, Ice Cream and Rainbow in their ongoing quest to clinch Season 2’s coveted Masked Singer Golden Trophy.

LaConco is the fourth celebrity to be unmasked on Masked Singer, following:

  •  Nthati Moshesh as Springbok
  • Comedian Celeste Ntuli asTortoise
  • Award-winning Metro FM presenter Khutso Theledi as Cheetah


LaConco expressed that performing and being on stage was new to her, but she enjoyed challenging herself.

“I can’t sing for my life, and being on stage performing like this was all new to me,” said LaConco.

“But I enjoy challenging myself. It was an experience and a half but great fun. I laughed so much inside the mask when my friends, Somizi and Sithelo, got the clues so wrong,” she continued.

So, what the detectives conclude?

J’Something said that Star’s clue package hint about having something in common with Cinderella meant that she was either looking for love or found her noble Prince. He also thought that even though Star had a beautiful voice, singing wasn’t her bread and butter. So, after weighing up Ama Qamata from Blood and Water and Mpoomy Ledwaba, whose Prince is Brendan Praise, J’Something settled on podcast sensation and digital entrepreneur Mpoomy.

When Skhumba heard during Star’s cryptic clue package that she wished to “blast out of speakers in our cars but ended up in our living rooms”, he jumped to the conclusion that she’s an actress. The comedian also learned that Star came from a talented family but stated that “family” didn’t necessarily refer to the family she was born into. This info convinced Skhumba that Sindi Dlathu from Muhvango was The Masked Singer SA’s Star.

Somizi disagreed. He pointed out that it was evident from one of Star’s clues that her father was flamboyant and affluent while her mother humbled her. As she clearly came from a very wealthy family, living a Cinderella fairy-tale life, Star might just be his own beautiful daughter, Bahumi Madisikwane. If not Bahumi, then Dineo “Moeketsi” Langa or DBN Gogo.

This week, Sithelo, who loved Star’s performance, had the honour of asking her one direct question. Sithelo wanted to know if she and Star had something in common. Star’s reply, “Three letters perhaps”, had Somizi shouting “DBN”. With that, Sithelo picked actress Dineo “Moeketsi” Langa, daughter of radio host and Gagazi FM’s first female programme manager, KG Moeketsi.
