Who is Nyonisela Sioh?

Nyonisela Sioh is a businessman, tailor and designer from Monrovia, Liberia and now resides in the United States.

Sioh was born in Monrovia which is the capital city of the West African country but he had to relocate due to the First Liberian Civil War in 1990. He then moved to Europe before finally settling in America.

He owns a couture suit company called Nyoni Couture based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The company specialises in men’s clothing, weddings and special events but focuses on men’s suits and tailoring.

Sioh has garnered over 100K followers on Instagram and he is sure to get even more media attention as he and Leakes start to post more couple content. Most of his business Instagram involves promoting his personalised tailoring sessions across locations such as Atlanta, Paris, Brussels, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

This week his tailoring sessions are in Miami to prepare for the holiday season, starting tomorrow 17th December to 20th 2021. Leakes supports Sioh’s business ventures as shown by her promoting Nyonisela Sioh’s upcoming project on her social media.

Sources told TMZ on Wednesday, 15 December, that the former Real Housewives Of Atlanta star was dating the man she was pictured with at her birthday bash and that dapper-looking fella just so happened to be businessman Nyonisela Sioh.

It seems the RHOA star has even made the relationship Instagram official as she shared pictures with Nyonisela from her 54th birthday party. Sioh wore a purple suit with a white T-shirt, brown shoes and accessorized with a big silver watch.

Sioh seems to already get along with Leakes’ friends, as he was seen partying alongside Shamea Morton, Kendall Kyndall, Porsha Williams, and her boyfriend Simon Guobadia. 

It is unknown when they officially started dating but it is thought that they were introduced by RHOA co-star Cynthia Bailey’s ex-husband, Peter Thomas.

NeNe and former costar Bailey haven’t always seen eye to eye. A month after Greggs death she said in an interview on Atlanta’s V103 that Bailey skipped her late husband’s funeral.

“Cynthia didn’t even come to the repast,” Nene Leakes said. “She did come like a week later after everything was done. She came by my lounge. It’s really hard to explain Housewives. It’s almost like a dysfunctional family. But they all reached out and sent flowers or something.”
