In the world of ZAlebville recently the fascination has been the influencer craze and their alleged relationships with blessers and sugar daddies. However, even within that clearly saturated demographic, there is also the phenomenon of unlikely celebrity couples that continue to surprise us. Whether it is the most recent surprise of Focalistic and DBN Gogo’s love story, or the still ongoing rumoured relationship between Thuli Phongolo and DJ Maphorisa. A relationship that seems to be ongoing if Thuli P’s gig guide and Instagram serves us correctly on all the “allegedlies.

A timeline of Thuli Phongolo and DJ Maphorisa’s rumoured relationship

The alleged love story between Generations: The Legacy’s Namhla and one half of Scorpion Kings’ Madumane was first brought to our attention back in October 2021. At the height of 2021’s summer hit by Kabza de Small and Ami Faku, Asibe Happy was the song we heard everywhere. For a while it was every lover’s song, until videos of Thuli P and DJ Maphorisa began surfacing. 
Phongolo and Madumane seemed to co-opt the song as theirs as more than one video popped up on the timeline with the two seemingly singing the song to each other. Then began the work of Twitter FBI as they shared circumstantial proof to show how the two have been dating undercover for months before the “truth” was revealed to all of us. 

How Phongolo and DJ Maphorisa proved they might be more than just friends

For years, or since Thuli Phongolo started her DJing career, there was always the elephant in the room on whether she is actually talented as a DJ or the profession is to secure a quick and profitable bag. Multiple times the presenter turned actress turned DJ and Amapiano insider denied the allegations. 

But then came March 2022 and the in-demand DJ had an opportunity to prove naysayers wrong when she was the DJ during one of the Big Brother House Party episodes. To say that she was dragged from here to DJ Maphorisa’s arms might be an understatement. Moreover, the reason that Phongolo would trend just months afterwards for allegedly “being helped” by Madumane during her sets. Another fact that Phongolo dismissed. But does that mean it was not true?
Thuli Phongolo and DJ Maphorisa are still a thing?

With DJ Maphorisa travelling taking Amapiano to the world, sightings of the two have been thin. But Thuli P  has been sharing that she continues to receive flowers from her “secret admirer.” Couple that with the clear solo-but-not-so-solo lunch and dinner dates she shares on her social media, then add the fact that Maphorisa has all but disappeared on social media to probably accommodate Phongolo to post in peace. 
Then you might be like us and begin thinking, are Phongolo and Maphorisa one of the youngest but longest running relationships. Especially, when Phongolo heads up Maphorisa’s send off party and zero posts are shared of what that night looked like? You, like us, might be mistaken to think that the mutually beneficial relationship is nine months and some days officially.
