Regarded by her fans as the Queen of Amapiano, Kamo Mphela who came to the limelight a few years ago after a video of her dancing went viral on social media has been on a winning streak and she keeps proving to the world that she is here to stay.

And while we know about Kamo Mphela right now, not so much is known about her background. This article reveals who Kamo Mphela’s parents are, her relationships, and her current projects.

Kamo Mphela was born in November 1999 in Emdeni, Soweto and not much is known about her parents since she rarely ever speaks about them in public.

The little much that we know about Kamo Mphela’s parents is that her father Onitiaf Mphela, worked at YFM and he used to take her to events where she got opportunities to dance on stage.

Not much is known about Kamo Mphela’s mother although, in a past interview with The Yanos, the young sensational artist revealed that she had a complicated relationship with her mother and although she was not close to her, her mother played a big role in convincing her father to let her choose her own career path.

It is unclear whether Kamo Mphela’s parents are together and whether or not Kamo Mphela has any siblings remains a mystery.

Kamo Mphela is currently unmarried and she has not revealed if and who she is currently dating. She has however been linked to famous names in the past including Focalistic and Andile Mpisane.

She was linked to Focalistic after the two worked together. Kamo however, shut down the rumours and clarified that she and Focalistic had known each other for many years and that they were nothing more than good friends. Focalistic is currently in a relationship with DBN Gogo.

Rumours that Kamo and Royal AM chairman Andile Mpisane were an item used to make rounds before Andile ditched the bachelor life and married Tamia Louw Mpisane. The rumours were often boosted when the two were spotted together with some alleging that Andile and Kamo were in a relationship before Sithole showed up in the picture.

There were also wild rumours that Cassper Nyovest and Kamo Mphela were dating some time back that circulated after Mac G of the Chill and Podcast with Mac G insinuated that he had heard somewhere that Cassper was romantically involved with Kamo. 

It’s crazy what stories people come up with sometimes, and when you are a celebrity, the stories are usually wilder.

Since coming to the limelight and getting signed by the Major League Deejays, Kamo Mphela has produced hit songs like Suka Emabozen and Menememe under her two EPs- Twentee and Nkulunkulu.

She has also collaborated and performed with other big names in the industry including MFR Souls, Busiswa, Nadia Nakai and the late Killer Kau.

Kamo who is currently hailed as one of the greatest performers in South Africa has also not only performed in some of the biggest events in the country but she has also toured different countries including Kenya and Nigeria. It seems like her star is not confined to South Africa.

And while we continue to cheer her on, we definitely have to appreciate her roots too because, without Kamo Mphela’s parents, we wouldn’t know Kamo.
