DJ Maphorisa and Thuli Phongolo cause serious confusion

Social media users are convinced DJ Maphorisa and Thuli Phongolo are sending subliminal messages to each other.

This follows after Maphorisa took to his timeline to share an image of Thuli, and the actress took to her social page to share a message to her supposed ex-boyfriend.

In May, fans were persuaded into thinking the couple had parted ways after reports of an alleged domestic dispute between them.




Maphorisa, real name Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe, was arrested after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend at an apartment in Sandton. He later appeared in the Randburg magistrate’s court on a charge of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The popular DJ was released on R4,000 bail after Thuli filed a withdrawal statement and agreed for the accused to be released on bail.

The duo then released a joint statement which noted the two stars wanted “to return to their respective fields of work after the now concluded private resolution of this matter”.

“Being public figures, it is unavoidable that the public, media, and their respective commercial partners all have an interest in this matter. Accordingly, they have decided to release this joint statement as the official and exclusive statement in the matter.
