Exclusive: ‘I replaced my fiancée of 7 years the same night’ – DJ Kalonje

DJ Kalonje has in an exclusive interview revealed that it’s true he did break up with his long term girlfriend, and has since moved on.

As if to prove that he has moved on Kalonje goes on to state that he found a replacement the same night he and his girlfriend broke up.

We tried all we could. I then went to social media and shared the news of the breakup and not every one was pleased that I had shared the news online.

I tried rectifying the damage but it was too late. Right now I have a girlfriend I actually replaced my ex on the same day.
