‘Not paying maintenance’: Minnie Dlamini slams ex in ‘Roast’

She’s the next celeb to take the hot seat in the Showmax Roast of Minnie Dlamini, but the TV star has used the opportunity to grill her ex-husband, Quinton Jones.

In 2022, Minnie announced her separation from the TV producer. Since then, the former couple have made headlines over their custody battle and reports of spousal support.

The roast will air on Friday, 26 April on Showmax.


The Showmax Roast of Minnie Dlamini – not to be confused with the Comedy Central Roast – was recorded earlier this month at the Laugh Africa Comedy Festival in Sandton.

The episode will air on Showmax’s streaming platform on 26 April.

The guest panellist includes celebs like Celeste Ntuli, Lasizwe, Trevor Gumbi, and Robert Marawa, amongst others.

Stand-up comedians Jason Goliath and Tumi Morake will share the role of roastmaster.

Minnie said in a statement of the opportunity: “This is a moment for me to turn lemons into lemonade. This is a moment for me to see and hear a lot of the things that people have been saying about me [which were cruel and mean] and turn what was said into something light and fun.

“In addition to that, this is a celebration of myself and my career. So my roast will surely be a good day at the office – what a way to get paid!”
