Boity and Cassper Nyovest let the world know they were in a relationship in the biggest way possible – a magazine cover!
The couple finally confirmed their relationship status in 2015 after months of speculation.
Earlier this year, Boity was still rumoured to be engaged to comedian Eugene Khoza, while Cassper allegedly had a fling with Amanda du-Pont.
Despite sharing a kiss at the Channel O awards in 2014, and being overly affectionate towards each other, Amanda revealed in March 2015 that they were just friends, and the whole thing was just to get people talking on social media.
Cassper pulled another big publicity stunt in July - this time with Boity.
Drum magazine released a picture of its latest issue that featured the pair on the cover.
The story’s caption read: "Cassper pops the question and Boity says yes."
Fans and the media assumed by “pops the question” that they were engaged, and flooded the couple’s social media with messages of congratulations.
But after trending for a few hours, the couple admitted Cassper had only asked her to be his girlfriend.
Really, a magazine cover to announce you are now girlfriend and boyfriend?
Boity and Cassper had carefully chosen the day to reveal their relationship, because a few hours later, they were celebrating Boity’s collaboration with clothing retailer, Legit – which also started trending.
But unlike his alleged relationship with Amanda, Cassper and Boity are 100%.
Boity told Previdar magazine in October: "I finally feel like I’m home. He feels like home…There’s nothing more amazing than to be on the same page with the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. And I know some people thought it was a publicity stunt of some sort but we were already in love when we decided to share the news. We just thought that it would be great that once in a while, we all celebrate positivity."Cassper took to Instagram to gush about his love, shortly after going public: “Thank you for my incredibly happy heart, my love. This is your night. I love you.”
During an interview on e.tv’s entertainment show, Hush, Cassper revealed he wants to have babies with Boity.
Boity and Cassper shared throwback pictures that showed just how far back they go.
The couple ended 2015 with an amazing “baecation”, after a year of hard work. We can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for them.
