Kefilwe Mabote has been sucked into the drama surrounding her bae, Edwin Sodi. The businessman has reportedly been linked to tainted multimillion Rand asbestos audit contract, advanced by the Free State’s Department of Human Settlements in 2014, which projected an audit of 36000 low-cost homes within the province.
After some major corruption, Sodi was stripped off the majority of his assets which amounted to approximately R300 million. This comprised more than 25 vehicles including a Ferrari FF which is priced at approximately R3 million. Amongst the many things seized from the man in question, was gifts given to Kefilwe from her man. According to public speculation, Kefilwe had to hand over bags worth hundreds of thousands of Rands in compliance with the Asset Forfeiture Unit (AFU).
The social media influencer is no stranger to loving the finer things in life and has built her brand around her luxury assets and designer labels. With the introduction of Sodi into her life, her fans believed that he was the perfect guy for her seeing as though he was capable of living up to that lifestyle. Now that he is left without anything, many are questioning what impact that will have on Kefilwe.
Reality star, Inno Matijane, has plenty to say on the subject matter, tweeting, “Kefilwe was an influencer before influencing was a thing. People buy homes, cars, travel with social media money. Don’t undermine an industry because you don’t know much about it. Lol not you guys making Kefilwe look weak without a man. You guys are always ready to disapprove black women and really undermine their potential. I’m not Kefilwe but I’ve made so much money off social media, I can only imagine what Kefilwe makes working with luxurious brands.”
As her name topped the Twitter trends, the influencer continued to show off exactly who she is, as she drove around in her Porsche, unfazed by the pandemonium that was going on in the social media streets.

Kefilwe is from Soweto and she managed to flourish. She is top tier hence she caught the attention of Sodi whom judging by the looks of things likes the finer things in life. Izoba right la girl with or without a man.

Yes kefilwe works hard for her bag but that doesn’t disregard that fact that she’s been flashing cars bought from corruption money which was meant to give the less fortunate better homes, equip clinics and build schools etc. It’s actually very embarrassing and shameful

Y’all really think Kefilwe is who she is because of a man she met yesterday when she’s been building her career even before Instagram?
Ke brand alignment this thing. She dates rich men because she’s rich.

Kefilwe just had a few gifts seized. Others are behind bars coz they unknowingly became accomplices to illegal dealings of their lovers. When a person’s hustle doesn’t make sense but you don’t ask questions coz you’re enjoying the money… it’ll end badly.
