Tumelo Ramaphosa, the lastborn son of South Africa’s president Cyril Ramaphosa, is said to be in a relationship with DJ and influencer Eva Modika.


According to ZiMoja, sources have alleged that the pair have been in a relationship for a few months.

“They were doing business at first through a friend, but now things have taken a turn, and they are dating,” said the source.

The source further alleged that Eva has been instrumental in the upcoming celebrity boxing tournament that Tumelo is hosting. The inaugural #StudexCelebrityBoxing with the Mandela Foundation and the International Boxing Association will be held at the International Convention Centre in Durban from April 15-21.

“Yes, she is very in tune with the celebrity world and has been helping him out a great deal. See, she’s not just a pretty face.”


Tumelo and Eva are reportedly head over heels in love. The alleged couple were recently seen on an Instagram Live video together where the businessman was answering questions about himself. They were again spotted at a nightclub together.

“All the close friends know that they are dating and it’s a serious relationship,” said the source.

“He can’t keep his hands off her. We even saw them at Pharoah Auto’s maybe he was buying her a new car,” added the source.

Asked about the rumours, Eva said: “I don’t speak about, my personal life. You know I’m a very private person. I have a brand to protect. Call Tumelo, what did he say?”


Tumelo is the president and his wife Dr Tshepo Motsepe’s son. He is a gym enthusiast and was dubbed the “national bae” for his looks, fashion sense and masculine body.

Tumelo is the founder and CEO of a company called StudEx Wild Life and reportedly has interests in cryptocurrency. He also holds a Master’s Degree in International Business from the Hult International Business School in Francisco, USA.

Late last year, the internet exploded when images of Tumelo and Real Housewives of Durban star Nonku Williams were circulated – instantly sparking dating rumours. In one picture, the pair are seen having a cosy dinner date. Meanwhile, another picture revealed that Tumelo and Nonku had joined forces for a “perfect pairing” of “premium meats and fine wines.”

Although fans loved the the “perfect pair”, it emerged that Tumelo is dating marketing guru and influencer Kelebogile Shomang.


Whike Eva keeps her romantic life out if the public, she was rumoured to be dating award-winning DJ and producer, Master KG.

However, speaking to TshisaLIVE last year, the influencer said that she and the Jerusalema hitmaker have a platonic relationship.

“Me and Master KG are good friends, we not dating or doing anything, and he did not buy me a TV,” she said.

Before the rumours about Master KG, Eva was in a relationship with an unknown man who bares an uncanny resemblance to convicted rapist and conman Thabo Bester.
