There's never a dull moment on this show, no wonder people continue to watch Date My Family simultaneously on Twitter and on TV.

Sunday night's episode was no different as bachelor - Sinethemba visited three families in the hopes of finding the girl of his dreams.

However, the show changed from it being about Snethemba's quest of finding real love to Black Twitter investigating the identity of one of the friends who featured on the show.

According to Black Twitter's investigative skills, one of the ladies, who goes by the name of Sibongile is said to be, Sibongile Mani, the Walter Sisulu University student who accidentally received R14 million from NSFAS and decided to go on a spending spree with the money.

According to News24, Sibongile had allegedly spent R810 000 of the money, which she spent on Peruvian wigs, designer clothes, expensive phones and hosting parties for her friends.

So you can only imagine the shock of many Date My Family viewers when tweets about Sibongile "the millionaire" spread like wildfire. 

You're probably wondering why Sibongile is on Date My Family and not in jail right?

News24 reported that Sibongile was arrested by the Serious Commercial Crime Unit of the Eastern Cape, she then appeared in the East London's Magistrate Court and was charged for theft which led to her arrest.

However, the student was released on a warning and is expected to appear in court in July.

Black Twitter, you've outdone yourself.
