Is Kamo Phasha Mihlali Ndamase’s Secret Boyfriend?

Mihlali Ndamase, who had been previously tweeting about how she is enjoying her single-and-ready-to-mingle status, suddenly started tweeting about falling in love and being happy about it. She even took it as far as telling fans to start getting their wedding attires ready as wedding bells were already ringing for her. However, those sentiments didn’t seem to last long as she instructed fans to put their materials to good use in sewing face masks, apparently, the wedding bells stopped ringing.

Suddenly, the blogger began sharing posts about men being trash which led fans to ask if the wedding was off. While the social media star didn’t provide a direct answer to the question, public curiosity was already sky-high. This set the Twitter FBI’s to work, investigating her posts to get to the mystery man’s identity. First, Mihlali Ndamase talked about her get-away with her mystery bae in Limpopo, and thereby mistakenly provided fans with a clue to unravel the puzzle. It only took a tattooed hand and a bracelet for the investigators to connect the missing dots and impressively, the man’s identity was supposedly revealed to be Kamo Phasha.

With the discovery, fans quickly moved to Instagram to try and find receipts, and were bountifully rewarded for their effort. It happened that Phasha was also in Limpopo on a get-away at a nature reserve that looked similar to Mihlali’s location. However, their postings were not from the same part of the reserve. Now, does that mean that the duo were not together? So many questions begging for answers. However, Mihlali, in a tweet, dismissed it as coincidence.

The Vlogger Has Chosen Not To Share Private Details In Her Recent Relationships

According to the beauty blogger, she has experienced a lot since she came onto the love scene as a young and impressionable girl. However, Mihlali stated that non of the experiences, including her worst heartbreaks, are regretted since they all contributed into making her the woman she has become today.

When asked what type of woman she is, Ndamase revealed in an interview that she perceives herself as that woman who can never be apologetic about her identity and will always keep her life story to herself while sharing a tiny portion with the world. The vlogger reportedly took the decision to keep her life relationships under wraps after her dalliance and eventual split from one half of the Major League DJ twins, Banele Mbere, was very public.

Mihlali Ndamase also let on that she has come to understand that when people like you, they tend to become attached to whatever is related to you, especially your romantic relationships; as such, when your previous dalliance dose not work out and you move on to the next person, fans may still be attached to your ex. Mihlali said this is always the scenario when a celebrity keeps making everything public and undoubtedly, it gets messy. Thus, she has chosen to keep her love life protected.

The internet star appears not be dating anyone presently, however, it is not always safe to assume with someone who is known for keeping her romantic entanglements under lock and key. Though, since the Twitter drama of ‘weddings and wedding bells’, Mihlali has not surfaced with any other posts suggestive of her love life.

On the flip side, the social media personality’s past is fraught with tales of relationships and broken hearts. For one, her dalliance with Banele Mbere – one half of Major League DJz – was conducted in the public eye and it ended in heartbreak. It is interesting to note that while they were still an item, Mbere told a news outlet that he presented his girlfriend with a promise ring. Thus, their break up was quite devastating.

Mihlali Ndamase’s name was also linked to Lewis Hamilton – the famous Formula One driver. After she witnessed Lewis zoom to victory at the Singapore Grand Prix, she shared some tweets about the driver and the race which sparked assumptions of their possible romantic entanglement. However, the YouTuber dispelled all rumors in an interview where she revealed that there is no relationship between them whatsoever, it was all about having fun and that she just felt like “trolling”.
