Being on a magazine cover validates a person’s celebrity status. Nonkanyiso Conco, the reality show star on Real Housewives of Durban, is celebrating being a cover girl. She is on the digital magazine Oak Magazine cover for the August to September issue. Although many people say she’s famous for being Jacob Zuma’s baby mama, she proves that she’s that girl.
On the cover, they wrote, “Nonkanyiso, the mother of light.” Her name means mother of light, and she tries to follow it with her deeds. As we all know, she is a motivational speaker and a TV host, and when she talks, she speaks of the importance of love and unity in making the world a better place.
The reality star is wearing a gorgeous MaXhosa by Laduma ensemble on the cover. Her outfit is made of a sleeveless MaXhosa jacket with a matching skirt. Her skirt incorporates inspiration from a Zulu traditional outfit item called ibheshu. Since she is a Zulu woman wearing a Xhosa man’s design, the skirt was only fitting.
The second picture of the issue is of the Real Housewives of Durban star wearing a long black dress with stylish sleeves. The dress has a chunky gold waist belt that goes all around her waist. The sleeves of the dress certainly give it the x-factor. The colour and boldness of the design make LaConco look like a true queen ready to sit on her throne.
Another stunning look from LaConco is the white outfit. She is wearing a long maxi dress with open sleeves. Her dress is made of sheer fabric, and abstract lines break down the whiteness. Her headpiece looks majestic with its pearl, bead and stone decorations. It sits on her forehead like both a crown and a headband.

As the owner of the t-shirt brand LaConco sold by Edgar’s retail group, she had to represent her brand. She is wearing one of her t-shirts with her signature. As the t-shirt is casual wear, she downed the royal image and opted for a green tulle fabric skirt. This particular outfit taps into her playful side and makes her look airy.
On all of the images, LaConco maintained her signature image. Her hair was styled in natural styles, and natural hair textured extensions. Being on the cover also didn’t change her type of makeup. As usual, she did a very soft glam look. If LaConco goes bold with her makeup, then it is only with her eyeshadow.
In the magazine, the focal point of her interview was speaking of life and careers. LaConco secures her bag in many ways. She owns businesses and also works within the media industry. Another thing she emphasizes is having multiple streams of income. Having more than one income is the route many are taking as the cost of living is getting too high.
Fans of the reality show star reacted with very positive comments. When she shared the pictures on Instagram, many followers told her she was killing it. All the responses were good, and many reassured her she was on top of her game now.
