Bonang Matheba has dated some famous people before, including the likes of AKA, Euphonik, Slikour, D’banj, and is even rumoured to have dated soccer star Simphiwe Tshabalala, but she’s not telling anyone who she’s dating now.

In 2019, she posted some pictures of Albanian businessman Fatmir Hysenbelliu on her Instagram stories, leading to speculation that the two were involved romantically. But then she stopped talking about him, so people wondered if they broke up.

“There’s a variety of things. I have been working, I know the B Force are very annoyed with me. They feel I have been quiet but I have been working and not sharing, but I’ve gone much quieter.

“That’s because I’m 35 and the older you grow, the quieter you become and that’s because I did all the shouting and dancing when I was 20,” said Matheba.
