Caroline Fassie who was an icon to many, well known for her hair trademark of long braids styled and dropping down from one side, was one of the presenters people enjoyed watching on television during the 90's.
We vividly remember an outrageous rumour surrounding the reason why she had her braids hanging from one side. The rumour back then was that she only had one ear which is ridiculous as there is an image on the internet where you can clearly see two ears.
If you didn't know by now, Caroline Fassie is the niece to the late Brenda Fassie. After she vanished from the entertainment industry, ZAlebs gathered information that she worked at an SABC department for a while; it has also been said that at some point she did voice-overs for the SABC and also produced a couple of shows for the SABC.
Furthermore, like her aunt Brenda, Caroline was a singer in the 80s and in 1988 she was famously known for her single Tough Enough.
In 2014, Kuli Roberts shared this image below of Caroline Fassie (on the left) with her aunt and another lady. This is just one of the few pictures of Caroline that are on social media.

In the past, tabloid publications have written stories surrounding Caroline's love life which she has neither denied nor confirmed as she totally disappeared from the public eye and opted to work behind the scenes.
It's also interested to see how that ear rumour is still something that people question about Caroline Fassie.
