Followers of both Thuso Mbedu and Musa Mthombeni, having seen how much the medical doctor was professing love for the actress, urged them to make marriage a reality for themselves. Many were so sure that the pair would make an incredibly perfect couple.
In March 2015, Mthombeni stirred more heat when he made a tweet insinuating that he wants to pay Thuso’s bride price in the form of cows. He took to his Twitter page asking Thuso for the address for the delivery of the cows. This sparked even more speculations from observers about what may be going on between the doctor and the actress.
Hi @ThusoMbedu , I need the address for the delivery of the cows for next week.
Uncle Madluphuthu will be there at 8am sharp.
It’s not a negotiation. Whatever your family wants they’ll get.

As expected, fans of Thuso began to urge her to consider Mthombeni’s offer. At this time, the media was already rife with opinions about Thuso and Mthombeni’s relationship and social media always caught fire when they tweeted about each other.
Interestingly, Thuso has also posted a photo of herself and Mthombeni on her Instagram page where she has more than a million followers, leading fans to think they may actually be an item.
When fans saw this, many were convinced that one day, Thuso and Mthombeni would walk down the aisle as husband and wife. The more skeptical ones joked that they would have Thuso arrested if a marriage does not happen between her and Mthombeni.
Mthombeni Sent Thuso 100 Roses
In 2019, it was announced that Thuso Mbedu had clinched the lead role in the American historical fiction drama web television series The Underground Railroad. It was to be her international debut and this sparked excitement among her fans.
Of course, Musa Mthombeni was not left out of the excitement. Like everyone else, he congratulated the star actress for landing the lead role in the TV series. But then, unlike everyone else, Mthombeni went further to actually send red roses to Thuso Mbedu. As a matter of fact, he sent as many as 100 roses to the actress to congratulate her.
Thuso, after receiving the roses from Mthombeni, went on Twitter to acknowledge the sweet gesture. She told Mthombeni that 100 roses were quite a lot and then thanked him while dedicating the gift to the ladies who are crushing on him. She then ended her tweet by calling him ‘friend’.

As expected, Mthombeni’s gift of 100 roses to Thuso Mbedu caused quite some stir on social media.

In a 2018 interview, Thuso explained that she was not in a relationship with Mthombeni.

On his own part, Mthombeni had an interview with Move! magazine where he also declared that he was not dating Thuso.
They Have Been Friends For Over A Decade

The whole thing happened at the funeral for one of Mthombeni’s friends, Akhumzi Jezile, which was attended by Thuso, as well as Mthombeni and his mother. After the funeral, Mthombeni’s mother saw Thuso and decided to have a chat with her and that was when she asked Thuso why she was not giving her son a chance.
My mother cornered @ThusoMbedu after the funeral to ask her why she isn’t giving me a chance and HER grandchildren 😂😂😂😂😂😂
My mom has reached a new level of needy!

After revealing this development on Twitter, Thuso, who saw Mthombeni’s tweet actually replied to the tweet, saying that she loves his mother. She also joked that she didn’t expect what the older woman did.

However, Thuso’s manager Vuyi Mpakanyiswa came out to debunk the news in April 2019. According to Vuyi Mpakanyiswa, Thuso was not dating DJ Sbu. He explained that the actress was in Los Angeles to work on her writing, accent training, as well as take part in an acting workshop. While there, she bumped into DJ Sbu, and as compatriots, they decided to hang out after which they went their separate ways. Thuso Mbedu and DJ Sbu are just friends who have nothing going on between them besides working in the same industry.
