Fans and followers are convinced actress Thuli Phongolo is pregnant with DJ Maphorisa’s baby after she tweeted about food poisoning on 8 January.


Twitter users are convinced Thuli Phongolo is pregnant. Given the numerous dating rumours Tweeps have tied to the DJ, it is natural to question the rumours. 

The reason Tweeps think Thuli is pregnant is because she posted about feeling sick on 8 January. The former The Wife star suspected she had food poisoning or something else was wrong with her tummy but Tweeps seemed to think it was morning sickness. 

“Is it food poisoning or is this gall we have?” read the tweet when Twitter translated it to English.

Tweeps in the comments section immediately thought the DJ was pregnant. Take a look…

“So early Thuli? You’re pregnant,” tweeted @RealMrumaDrive sharing a photoshopped picture of the actress.

“Madumane ke star Medium star. Congratulations,” wrote @Ori_Debig_Beats.

“Your food poisoning will be 3 months old by December. You’ll be behind the decks again and making us dance,” wrote @Leenel_T.

Tweeps think DJ Maphorisa is the father of the rumoured baby. This is because the pair have been rumoured to be romantically linked since October 2021. 

A video of the pair getting cozy at what seems to be a gig, went viral on 12 October. Orlando Pirates star Thembinkosi Lorch then appeared to confirm the rumours via an Instagram live. 

The pair were trending on Twitter for almost two weeks straight but fans were upset when musician Mr JazziQ posted a snap with the actress. This led to many believing the pair were dating but he later denied the rumours. 

At the very beginning of this year Tweeps seemed to have found proof that the pair were romantically linked. This was after Thuli shared a selfie in what appears to be the same bedroom as DJ Maphorisa. Take a look…

For this reason, Twitter users think DJ Maphorisa may be the “baby daddy.”
