Thando famously broke things off with her longtime partner, Frans Mashao back in 2018 after it was alleged that he had been unfaithful. The two had been together for nearly five years but their relationship, unfortunately, came to an end.
Since then, Thando has been on a journey of self-love and high accomplishments in the industry culminating in a starring role in one of this year's hottest feature films, Love Lives Here. She was boasting plenty of on-screen romance but it was about time that Love began to live in her own life. And would you look at it, it looks like she has finally found someone.
Over the past weekend, she teased that she was with someone new, even adding that she wanted to share a picture of him with us but added that we were undeserving of such because we were "messy". Having seen the way Mzansi treats celebrities online, I don't even blame her...
To be fair, we were all minding our own business before this tweet but as soon as Thando revealed that she was no longer single, an entire man-hunt began as the timeline tried to discover who it was that she was dating.
Thando might be good at keeping secrets but not everybody in her life is. As the whole of black Twitter was wondering and guessing who the new person in Thando's life could be, her "bae" revealed themselves to the public as none other than...
947 presenter, Mantsoe Pout:
Thando confirmed that the cat was out of the bag, she and Mantsoe are officially Mzansi's hottest couple:
(before y'all drag me, I'm well aware of the fact that both ladies were joking)
Jokes aside, we are all happy for Thando Thabethe. There is nothing more difficult than ending a relationship with someone you thought you were going to marry -- but we are glad to see that her hope in love has not diminished.
Of course we are now all dying to know: Who is Thando's new bae?
