In the Mzansi Magic show, Phelo covered his ring tattoo up to signify that he is moving on with his life.

“I can’t have this thing on my finger and continue with my life. I am heartbroken and hurt it didn’t work out. I really did love him and I still do.

“All he could’ve said was Phelo I love you, Phelo I need you to stay, that’s all and maybe things could’ve turned out differently but those words and all that stuff, I never got them,” he said.

Speaking to his friend and actress Charmaine Mtinta in the show, Phelo said that he’d love to tie the knot again

‘I feel like I’m going to find somebody who is going to protect me, who’s going to love me, not somebody who is going to throw a black plastic bag in your face in front of your friends and say you must leave his house.”


In an interview with Isolezwe last year, Moshe also said that he would like to get married again. He added that he believes the problem isn’t love, but people who get into love.

“As someone who’s been married before, I will re-marry because I love marriage and I love love. Love or marriage is not the problem, people are.”

The former couple’s drama caught the attention of the public in 2019 when Phelo accused Moshe of physically abusing him during an altercation they had in their Northriding, Johannesburg home.

The allegations led to a court order against the TV host who followed it up with a counter-interim order in 2020.

According to Daily Sun at the time, Moshe had labelled Phelo a jealous partner who cannot handle his alcohol. He alleged that he was also physically abused by him. These incidences eventually led to the couple splitting up

However, they managed to rekindle their love and even celebrated their second wedding anniversary in 2021.
