Actress and DJ Thuli Phongolo is no stranger to romance rumours. She has been romantically linked to many male celebrities over the last few years, here’s a look at the rumoured bae’s in 2021.


Thuli Phongolo was rumoured to be dating three male celebrities in the entertainment industry this year. The DJ insisted she was single after each rumour began to spread but Tweeps were not entirely convinced. Here’s a look at her three rumoured bae’s for 2021.


Thuli Phongolo was rumoured to be dating Master KG in August this year. This was because the DJ commented on the Jerusalema hitmaker’s tweet about older women. 

“Is it a bad thing for always falling for people older than you as a guy?” tweeted Master KG.

“Bathong nana, of course!” commented Thuli.

The DJ took to Twitter to address the rumours but her response had the Twitter streets fired up. 

“Apparently, I’m dating MasterKG because I commented on his tweet! Guys, please respect me!” she tweeted.

“I love @MasterKGsa but we’re friends, stop it!” she went on to say.

The “please respect me” part had Tweeps thinking she thought she was “too good” for Master KG. She cleared up saying that the “respect me” was directed at the baseless rumours.


DJ Maphorisa was the most believable but the most controversial romance rumour of Thuli’s for the year. The pair sparked romance rumours when several videos of being smitten while dancing went viral on Twitter in October.

Tweeps were convinced the pair were together and Orlando Pirates player Thembinkosi Lorch seemingly confirmed their romance. The pair trended on Twitter for about two weeks. Some Tweeps thought Thuli was using DJ Maphorisa to reignite her DJ career. Other Tweeps thought DJ Maphorisa was “too dark” for Thuli, sparking a conversation of colourism on Twitter. 

The socialite denied the rumours. 

“Y’all stop, we’re not dating! I’m so done with you guys! ????” she tweeted.


Mr JazziQ sparked romance rumours with Thuli after he posted pictures with her on Instagram. The pictures were taken at Riky Rick’s luxurious dinner party in November. Take a look…

Thuli yet again denied the rumours and insisted she is single. 

“Thuli P is not dating anyone or “with” anyone in anyway… – Lord let the truth be heard!!!” she tweeted.
