Meet Nyonisela Sioh, NeNe Leakes Boyfriend
NeNe Leakes seems to have moved on after losing her husband in early September 2021. On her 54th birthday in December 2021, she appeared with a new man recognized as Myonisela Sioh, founder of Nyoni Couture. A source close to both confirmed to TMZ that Peter Thomas, the ex-husband of fellow ‘RHOA’ star Cynthia Bailey played the matchmaker for the couple.
However, it remains unclear for how long they have been dating each other.
The pair appeared cozy together down at NeNe’s Linnethia Lounge in Georgia and she was surrounded by family, friends, and celebs like Keke Wyatt and Porsha Williams. The birthday party was organized by her son Brentt.
In several photos, NeNe can be seen with her arm around Nyonisela Sioh, a businessman and tailor. Nyonisela wore a striking lavender suit with a double-breasted jacket and peaked lapels, which he paired with a white V-neck T-shirt and casual brown shoes.
After the birthday post, fans appeared not very much thrilled about the budding relationship. One user wrote on Facebook, “God! That was fast… If someone is the Love of my Life, I won’t be quick to be in another relationship. I’ll need time to heal”. Similarly, another wrote, “My sweet husband just died from cancer on Oct 21st and there is NO WAY I can even think about dating again, nonetheless do it”
However, NeNe hasn’t addressed the relationship herself.
NeNe Leakes’ husband died at the age of 66 in early September 2021. He was battling colon cancer that took his life.

According to his Facebook, he has been the owner/CEO of Nyoni Couture since 2010. But his LinkedIn tells otherwise. Meanwhile, as per his LinkedIn profile, he has been running the company since October 2013.
Back in 2020, Nyonisela revealed in an interview that he has been working as a designer for 12 years. He started his career as a designer in the D.C. metro area selling to clients. He traveled frequently and it started with his friends asking him to bring back certain pieces on his trips to Italy.
Because of that, Nyonisela started taking trips to Italy strictly to fill orders. But, when he moved to Charlotte, it became the birthplace of the store. Talking about the clothes, he revealed that he mostly uses Italian fabrics and his greatest achievement by far was celebrities wearing his brand.
Nyonisela describes his clients as “Jeffrey”. He further revealed Jeffrey was someone between the age of 24-60 years old who makes $60K – $250K annually, lives downtown, and could also live in the suburb. He also shared that Jeffrey buys Nyoni Couture because he is guaranteed customized treatment; no experience in the store is the same.
He has also considered opening Neyoni Couture in Africa because of his roots. Besides suits, Nyoni also offers accessories like belts, cufflinks, hats, neckties, knit ties, scarves, and shoes, and also provides rental Tuxedo services.
According to Nyonisela, his brand’s specialty is custom suiting and made-to-order pieces.
