Johannesburg - Umkhulu Tiki Nxumalo may just have a son after all!
This is the shocking claim made by Drum, who found the man at Tiki's funeral.
You will remember that when the actor died it was said that he never had a wife nor children. In fact, Tiki himself often referred to himself as childless.
But a mystery man who appeared at the funeral says he is the son of the legendary actor. However, no one can confirm if he’s legit!
The man, Ntokozo Nxumalo, claims Tiki hid him from the limelight for his own good.
"He told me not to worry about what the newspapers write and I was okay with it."
So then why did they not live together?
Ntokozo claims that Tiki asked him many times to come live with him, but he refused. He says he was heartbroken to hear about his father's death.
"I feel very bad that he died alone. I wish I was there. But I guess I am my father's son because I also live alone," he says.
Ntokozo also confirms the reports that his father had died a poor man and that the family had to rely on the charity of friends to help bury him.
According to the magazine, Tiki's dear friend on Generations, Ma Ruby was the only one from the soapie who attended his funeral.
This, as The Juice reported earlier this week, the show's creator Mfundi Vundla apparently gave R1000 towards Tiki's burial.
