Durban Gen actress Nelisiwe Sibiya

Durban Gen actress Nelisiwe Sibiya is facing accusations of lying about being a virgin, leading to trouble on social media. The rumors intensified when she was linked to sports commentator Robert Marawa. Despite claiming to be a virgin, Twitter users have criticized her and called out the inconsistency in her statements.

The drama unfolded after gossip columnist Musa Khawula wrote a blog post criticizing Nelisiwe Sibiya’s acting abilities. Twitter users used this opportunity to dispute her claims of virginity. They questioned why she is always seen with virgins but lacks the white dot on her forehead that signifies virginity, as her friends do. Doubts have arisen about her authenticity, with some accusing her of jumping from one man to another.

Nelisiwe’s absence from the recent Reed Dance, an event where proud virgins gather annually to display their purity, further fueled the skepticism. As a devout believer in religion, her non-participation surprised many and prompted them to question her claims of virginity.
