In case you're wondering about Mandla Ngcongwane's relationship status, you have come to the right place. The actor and TV producer has taken to social media to reveal that he's not seeing anyone at the moment.
This comes after Sunday Sun reported that Mandla, who's the brains behind Mzansi Magic's Lockdown, had moved on. According to the publication, Mandla is rumoured to be romantically linked involved with Nelisiwe Sibiya, who sings some of the songs on Lockdown.
Taking to Instagram stories, Mandla said: "Just to the set the record straight, you know, I'm not dating anybody right now. But, you know what, [I] appreciate you guys giving me girlfriends."
Mandla and his wife Tumi Masemola called it quits after years of being together. Tumi, who has a thriving career of her own, has made it clear that she doesn't want to be asked about the split. The singer and actress took to Instagram after gracing the cover of Drum magazine.
She wrote: "Aaah! drum magazine headline. Maybe I said more than I should about stuff that's nobody's business. Exposed myself. My point is there is life after a failed relationship, and life is for the living with or without millions in the bank. Please don't ask again... #aswemoveforward."
In an exclusive interview with ZAlebs, Mandla said he was focusing his energy on his work and kids. “That’s the only constant in my life, it’s been my work and my kids. Relationships are really great but they constantly change, people fall in love with your relationship and when it changes, it becomes something else. So, you take people through this rollercoaster ride, but what do I want people to remember me for? Definitely my work more than my relationship or anything like that," he said.
On Monday, the former couple shared pictures from their daughter's birthday celebration.
Today, 8 years ago, a very special lady was born and it changed my life for the better. I am grateful for the sleepless nights, cute laughs and the many “daddy why’s”... I would t trade them for anything," Mandla captioned the snap.
