Ex Bafana Bafana captain Bongani Khumalo and Ayanda Thabethe have been going very strong apparently for months now but have decided to keep their relationship private.
Ayanda and her ex Papi’s relationship, who also dated Lerato Kganyago, ended abruptly when it was revealed he already had a woman in his life and the parents were involved. Earlier this year, ZAlebs received information that Papi is in a serious relationship with local lifestyle blogger, Sibahle Magadlela.
An insider informed us that Papi and Sibahle have a 1-year-old child together, and the travel and food enthusiast lives in an apartment which Papi is currently paying for. Papi has even introduced the 25-year-old to his family and has “promised” engagement, lastly, Papi has spoiled Sbahle with a number of high profile holidays as well. All whilst entertaining Ayanda.
Now, Sunday World has revealed that Ayanda is dating the soccer player and are very happy. We’re talking ‘walking down the aisle happy.’ The publication alleges that the two met through a mutual friend.
They have already been spotted in public together and were recently at the Style Awards which took place November 23.
A friend close to the couple informed the publication, “The lovebirds are so madly in love and smitten with one another that they are serving us couple goals. They are very serious. He might pop the question anytime soon, and Ayanda is aware about that,” said the friend who asked not be named.
Ayanda has quiet an impressive list of exes in ZAlebville. She was once married to television presenter, Andile Ncube, for a period of two years. Unfortunately, the marriage did not last and during an interview with Fresh Breakfast she opened up about the marriage and how amicable the divorce was. “I just looked within. It always come back to knowing yourself. When I go home, there is nobody there but me and I have to answer to myself. Am I happy or am I not? I had to be truthful to myself and the truth is I just wasn’t happy in that space so I needed to go.”
Ayanda then dated Zulu Mkhathini aka Dash, but the couple split late November 2018. Unfortunately, no one said as to why they were going their separate ways, but Ayanda acknowledged that although she was single again, she will always think the world of Dash though.
