It seems as though the flame between musicians DJ Maphorisa and Thuli Phongolo has been reignited. Or was it never put out?
The Mnike hitmaker – real name Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe – took to his Instagram stories on Sunday, 12 November, to post what appears to be a mirror image of the former Generations: The Legacy actress.The photo shows Thuli standing in the middle of a bedroom with her back towards the mirror to expose her new BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) – a cosmetic surgery where a doctor transfers fat from one or more parts of the patient’s body to their buttocks.
The image was first shared by Thuli on her Instagram stories, before Maphorisa also shared the same one alongside his hit song Bopha with Mellow & Sleazy, Felo Le Tee and Young Stunna.CASE AGAINST MAPHORISA WITHDRAWN
DJ Maphorisa’s post comes almost three months after his assault case was withdrawn.
The producer and BlaqBoy Music record label boss was arrested in May this year for allegedly assaulting Thuli at her Sandton home.After his first court appearance, a day after his arrest, he was granted R4 000 bail. The former Rockville actress subsequently filed a withdrawal statement on the same day. However, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) decided to continue with the case.
“We can confirm that the case against DJ Maphorisa was withdrawn after he lodged representations with the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions which were successful. He lodged representations, and upon studying them we then took a decision to withdraw [the charges].
“Remember that the complainant in the matter filed a withdrawal statement. So that meant we had to look into any other areas that we had to prove our case. Upon such consideration, the office of the director of prosecutions took a decision to withdraw the case,” NPA spokesperson, Phindi Mjonondwane said.
