Edwin Sodi Biography

Edwin Sodi is said to have been born to a father who was a pastor in the Lutheran Church. The identity of his mother is unknown.

He captured the public’s attention as the chief executive officer of Blackhead Consulting, a company being accused of corruption in the execution of contracts and his generosity towards politicians, especially those of the African Nationa Congress (ANC).

He has managed to keep many aspects of his life away from the public, but he was married at some point and had children from that union.


Edwin Sodi’s age is one piece of information that’s not available. Anyway, whenever it should become available, we will update this post.


Edwin Sodi is a man with a fascinating marital history. He was married once upon a time. But at the time of writing this post, he has no wife in his orbit.

Thanks to his wealth, the millionaire businessman attracted some of Mzansi’s most glamorous women.

In 2012, he married Nthateng Lerata in a traditional ceremony. After a few years, however, the marriage was over. Edwin Sodi accused Nthateng Lerata of pilfering the R1 million he left in a safe at home when he travelled abroad. He was also accused of stealing some of his designer watches, including a Rolex, a Panerai, and Audemars Piguet.

In 2015, he was alleged to have ruined DJ Sbu’s relationship with Disebo Makatsa. The two were said to have been engaged until Sodi stepped in, flinging them asunder. Makatsa loudly denies Sodi was the reason for the breakup, though.

After the relationship with Makatsa flopped, he was said to have hooked up with social media influencer Refilwe Mabote, with social media denizens describing them as ideal for each other, given their well-documented tastes for luxury living.


Edwin Sodi has not one but several houses, with the word “palatial” routinely used to describe them. One of his mansions is said to be worth R85 million. Located in Bryanston, the mansion was put up for sale in 2020, allegedly over the fraud case involving Sodi and one of his companies.


It has often been said that a man’s cars give clues to his station in life and his tastes. If that should apply to Edwin, then one might say that he has an exceptionally high taste in cars. From Bentley to Ferrari, the businessman’s garage glitters with some of the finest brands in the market. Check out a sample list of the cars he owns below.
