Actress and DJ Thuli Phongolo was slammed by Tweeps after she revealed she wanted to remain single, via a tweet on Tuesday 7 December.


Thuli Phongolo hinted that she had relationship struggles as she expressed she wants to remain single. In a tweet she said that dating is the circus she describes as “clownology” and she failed that course.

“Yhu hayi, let me just remain single yeva! I can’t work so hard, get exhausted and still go home to deal with a circus. What in the clownology is thaaaart!? I’ve failed this course!” she tweeted.

Some Tweeps questioned who the new guy was. 

Others brought up DJ Maphorisa and thought she should be a guest on the controversial Podcast And Chill with MacG.

“You broke Phoris heart,” wrote @jov_ice.

“What about you visit MacG and give us something to talk about this December, something which won’t involve police and court of law. Something kabo Phori and Mr Jazziq,” wrote @jstIsy1.

While others were supportive. 

“I feel your pain. your emotions and feelings are Valid. you will find happiness and Peace soon. believe it. I am here if you need a shoulder to cry on,” wrote @MichaelBucwa.


Tweeps took this as an opportunity to troll Thuli because of her alleged relationship with DJ Maphorisa. The actress sparked romance rumours with DJ Maphorisa in October, after a video of the pair sharing an intimate moment went viral. 

However, Tweeps seemed to think Thuli was using DJ Maphorisa to boost her DJ career. While others seemed to think he was too “dark skin” for her, which sparked a conversation of colourism on Twitter. 

She later sparked romance rumours with musician Mr JazziQ. After Mr JazziQ posted two photos with Thuli on Instagram, Tweeps jumped to the conclusion that they were romantically linked. Although the pair both denied it, DJ Maphorisa began to trend on Twitter.
