Dating and marital life
The Bad Girl hitmaker has been in two established romantic relationships. First, she was involved in a relationship with Arthur Mofokate, who was her former boss. Unfortunately, he physically assaulted and abused the singer, forcing her to call it quits.
She could not endure the injuries of her ex-partner, and so she sued him. At last, the ex-partner was found guilty. Despite the ugly incident, she has since moved on.
In 2019, she posted her picture dressed as Makoti (bride). The two photos were captioned with two hearts and one ring. Fans were excited, and they wished her well with her love. However, she has never revealed his identity. Perhaps, she prefers to keep a low profile about her love life, this time.
The Runway singer did not reveal the venue of her wedding and the people who attended it. Judging by the way she handled the whole thing, it was a traditional private marriage. Also, judging by the voices heard on the background of the video she posted on Instagram, it was only her close friends or family who attended it.
A few months later, after her wedding, she shocked her fans with the news of her pregnancy. She kept the pregnancy a secret for a long time before finally showing it. It was shocking news to many, considering she had earlier said that she sustained a severe injury on her pelvic bone. It saw her undergo a replacement of the bones.
Speaking to Daily Sun, at the time, she said:
He said during pregnancy, the child sits on the pelvic bones, and because mine were broken and had screws in them, I may never be able to have children.
God above all
Cici might have been carried away by happiness when she realized she was a few months from becoming a mother, considering the advice the doctor offered her. She took to Instagram posting one of her baby bump pictures (in a video format) accompanied by the following caption:
Where Science deems it impossible God always reminds why he is God.
The 33-year-old recently marked the end of her pregnancy period on 15th May 2020. She gave birth to a cute baby boy. His name is Diallo. Interestingly, she has already created an Instagram account for him. Presumably, Cici baby daddy is the one whom she married in June 2019.
