From Heart Emojis to Handcuffs: Popular South African TikToker Arrested Alongside Nigerian Boyfriend
Trouble’s brewing as a South African TikTok sensation finds herself in a sticky situation with her Nigerian beau.
Reports coming in reveal that a well-known TikToker from Durban, South Africa, landed herself in handcuffs on Wednesday, alongside her Nigerian partner.
How Police Nabbed Durban TikToker And Nigerian Boyfriend
Owami Ngcobo, the Durban TikTok sensation, reportedly found herself in hot water when she and her Nigerian boyfriend were apprehended early Wednesday morning.
According to details shared by the KZN VIP Protection Services on Facebook, the duo got nabbed after a tip-off prompted the Durban Metro Police Service Drug Team to spring into action regarding the sale of a hijacked vehicle—a White Hyundai I20, to be precise.
Swiftly, members of the South African Police Service (SAPS) orchestrated a strategic move.
Undercover agents made their move in Umhlanga, Meridian Drive, where they successfully apprehended two suspects in the early hours of Wednesday.
Although one of the suspects, believed to be Owami’s Nigerian boyfriend, initially managed to give authorities the slip, he was eventually caught at Blue Lagoon.
Both suspects were processed at the Durban North South African Police Service station.

Observant social media users swiftly noted that the lady in the released images bore a striking resemblance to Owami Ngcobo, even sporting an outfit eerily reminiscent of her latest TikTok video.
As of now, Owami has refrained from posting any content on her TikTok account. In response to one of her recent videos, commenters drew parallels between her romantic entanglement and the affairs of Dr Nandipha Magudumana and Thabo Bester. A segment of TikTok users expressed hopes that the reports might be unfounded, praying that she had been wrongly apprehended.
Here’s a selection of comments:
