Media personality Thando ‘Thabooty’ Thabethe is living her best life and she has her man right by her side. The Housekeepers lead actress and her boyfriend Lunga Shabalala recently confirmed that they are giving their love another try.THANDO THABETHE
The first time we noticed that they were together was in 2019 when they claimed to have bumped into each other at Somhale’s traditional wedding. Of course non of us bought the story because at both weddings they rocked up wearing matching outfits, nevermind the fact that they were always conveniently bumping into each other. Besides, their love was beautiful to watch and fans really loved how they always served couple goals.
Sadly, in April 2020, we discovered that the pair had broken up. This was made clear by Thando’s posts when she posted snaps with a tall dark and handsome man, Jamie Abolore. Things got quite heated earlier this year, Lunga was even labeled “a jealous ex” after Thando revealed her man, to which he vehemently disputed claims he was jealous.
“This is the nonsense that I won’t tolerate, There’s no need for my name to be mentioned in this article full of inaccuracies. For everyone’s sake remove any mention of my name,” he was quoted as saying back in February.
Last month, Lunga celebrated his birthday in style and ZAlebs gave you the scoop. The former The River actor said that he had ‘June Ndlovu’ to thank for making his birthday celebration extra special. June Ndlovu, by the way, is a character on Housekeepers (a drama series Thando stars in).
In a video posted by the presenter and actor, he is seen enjoying his best life and Thando also makes an appearance when the two enjoy some quad biking together.
“Days do not get better than this! Happy Birthday 32nd Mr Shabalala 😊🎁🙏🏾. Thank you June for making it so special. ❤️,” Lunga wrote on Instagram.
Now, it seems Lunga has reciprocated and made Thando’s birthday celebrations very memorable. This past weekend, the couple spent some alone time in the Western Cape in celebration of Thando’s 31st birthday.
In a series of images and videos posted to Thando and Lunga’s respective Instagram feeds and stories, the two lovebirds can be seen enjoying their getaway in Knysna – as per Thando’s location tag.
In one of the videos posted on Lunga’s Instagram stories, he can be seen walking along the beach with Thando chilling in the back. Lunga is heard saying that he is winning the boyfriend Olympics, and then turns the camera to Thando for approval. In another loved-up video, the two lovers are walking along the beach when Thando suddenly breaks into a ra song by Biggie.
More content of the couple includes a video of them on a yatch and another with “Best Part” by Daniel Caesar ft. H.E.R in the clip. Love definitely lives here and we are here for it!
