LaConco biography, age, child, husband, real housewives of Durban

LaConco (born Nonkanyiso Conco in Durban) is a South African entrepreneur and reality television star. 

She made waves in the country after she made headlines as the wife of ex-president Jacob Zuma.

Polygamy is something many people in this present generation are beginning to accept. Getting married to the former president wasn’t what triggered many reactions, it was his age compared to hers.

Though many sources have reported that they have gone their separate ways.

This alleged decision of theirs did not affect her fame, instead, many wait anxiously to know more about her.

As an entrepreneur, she is into beauty and cosmetics. Conco launched LaConco Naturals, a luxurious skin-care range.

Originating from Matatiele in the KwaZulu-Natal, she is known to many television viewers and internet users.

She was named Nonkanyiso Conco by her parents after her birth in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. She is believed to be in her mid-20s but declined to disclose her age. Conco “enjoys seeing people assuming it and making up stories”.

She had her high school academic pursuit at Haythorne High School, Woodlands, Pietermaritzburg.

After graduating from high school, she furthered her education at IIE Varsity College. At the higher institution, she studied Journalism and Media.


Her page on Facebook reads that she works as a presenter/producer at Vuma FM. She has also worked with Independent Newspapers as a reporter/photographer.

She has also occupied the position of director at Nomkhubulwane Culture and Youth Development organization, Pietermaritzburg. 

The promotion has the primary objective of preserving and promoting the Zulu culture of testing virginity.

As a reality television star, she made it to the cast of The Real Housewives of Durban, a new 1 Magic television show.


Conco is a proud mother of a child who she had with the former president of South Africa Jacob Zuma. She gave birth to their son on 12 April 2018. The child was born on his father’s 76th birthday. 


Close sources to Nonkanyiso revealed that their (Conco and Zuma) relationship is not recent. It dates back to 2013 and Conco often addressed him as uBaba (father).

Confirming their relationship, a tweet of hers was proof that they were together. 

Don’t believe this OMG!!! Am going back to that Hollywood house, to spend the whole weekend this time. #Zuma’s home @Nkandla. Whoop can’t wait.

Climbing another ladder in their relationship, they were engaged. She was happy and shared what many interpreted as her engagement ring from the ex-president. 

Rumors later had it that Zuma had paid her lobola as they prepared to exchange their marital vows. Though, they share a 53-year age difference. Age is just a number, right?

Getting married to the polygamist would earn her the position as the seventh wife.


Rumors later started to circulate that they were no longer together and had parted ways. A report by The Citizen covered that they broke up late last year.

The split ended in her leaving his rented apartment at Zimbali’s plush Hilltop Private Estate, Durban. She had to relocate to her mother’s in Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Her father stated that her engagement with Zuma gave them little room for a smooth relationship.

Though, he did not give his approval for his daughter to be in a relationship with Zuma.
