The romance between Thando Thabethe and actor Lunga Shabalala don’t stop


The romance between radio personality Thando Thabethe and actor Lunga Shabalala appears to be back on track.

Last year, the mysterious pair called it quits for undisclosed reasons.

Thabethe appeared to have moved on and begun dating Booth nightclub owner Jaji Albortore after he shared a photo of them together and referred to her as his “lockdown partner.”


However, it appears that the former pair have patched things up, as Thabethe posted selfies with Shabalala on her Instagram page over the weekend with the caption: “Love u @lunga shabalala.”

Thando and Lunga have been rumored to be dating for months after the couple was spotted at various events together — often looking cozy.

Twitter and Instagram FBI have also had investigations into the pair, which showed them at the same location several times, from connecting similarities in their separate social media posts.

Lunga also recently posted a picture of him and Thando together on a getaway, where he dubbed Thando his “favorite person”, with a heart emoji in the caption.

This is Thando’s first public relationship since she called off her engagement from her long-term partner Frans Mashao, allegedly over cheating speculation

The actress stated she didn’t want to go into depth about their breakup during an appearance on SABC3’s Real Talk with Azania, but she did reveal that they had split up.

“I don’t believe I need to get into the details… We are no longer engaged, which I never denied. I don’t think it’s necessary for me to explain why it ended… “As much as I told people we were engaged, I never told them everything, and this [breakup] is something I don’t want to discuss,” she explained.

The last time the two lovebirds were rumored to be together was in 2019 when they went on a vacation in the Maldives after internet sleuths discovered they were both staying at the Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives.


Thabethe recently opened her first real store in Dainfern Square, north of Johannesburg.

The host of “947 Drive with Thando” launched Thabooty’s, an underwear and shapewear company that sells online, in 2017.

In 2021, the star of How to Ruin Christmas announced on Instagram that she is finally establishing a walk-in store.
