Most South African had no idea who Nicole Nyaba was, but one cheating scandal later, everyone has a lot to say about her and what she supposedly does for a living.
The socialite made headlines in September last year when she was accused of having an affair with rapper AKA.
They both denied the claims, with AKA even offering a R100,000 reward to anyone who has proof of the alleged romance.
Since then, interest in Nicole has increased, with many clubs and party organisers queueing up to book her for appearances.
Despite holding down several jobs, many people are convinced Nicole gets her money through shady sex for money exchanges.
Speaking to TouchHD recently, Nicole says people have accused her of being a “slay queen” who makes money off rich men. Some people have even gone as far as accusing her of being a prostitute.
But Nicole says she does not sleep with wealthy men to support her lifestyle, adding that she makes her own money.
“At the end of the day, I always remind myself that no one was here when I started. I don’t like it when a person asks you what you do before asking you what your name is,” ZAlebs quoted her as saying on the online radio station.
Despite doing her best to ignore her haters, Nicole says it does upset her when the nasty claims reach her parents’ ears
“’I chill with my friends… laugh, until it gets to my mom and my dad, then it’s not a joke. Then it’s something that really, really hurts me.
“When I see my mom or a family member of mine hurt over the sh** that people say, what they know is what I tell them…that I host parties, I work in a club…I’m a model and they get it.”
Nicole added that she does not agree with women sleeping with men for money.
“I don’t condone it… it’s a whole different situation if you’re in a relationship and your man takes care of you… I can afford my life, looking like a bad b***h every day…”
