She Was in a Very Publicised Relationship with Andile Mpisane
Beyond her success as a DJ and an influencer, the famous DJ has received massive attention from the media, owing to her relationship with Andile Mpisane. Mpisane is a famous football player and a musician who comes from a South African royal family. His mother is the popular and wealthy businesswoman, Shauwn Mpisane popularly known as MaMkhize.
There are no details on how the two met, but it is known that they started dating when Mpisane was 17 years of age. Theirs was a very controversial relationship because Sithelo was a record seven years older than her love interest. Neither of the lovebirds seemed to mind the age difference between them.
The Relationship Made Them Parents of Two
Over a year after their relationship hit the streets, Sithelo Shozi again made the headlines when it emerged that she was pregnant for Andile who was just 18 years of age at the time. The announcement received a lot of reactions from many who thought Shozi intentionally got pregnant so Mpisane would marry her.
Beyond the disapproval of the media, Andile’s mother was also not a big fan of the development. This notwithstanding Sithelo Shozi and Andile Mpisane welcome their first child together on the 2nd of May 2020. The overjoyed parents named her Florence ‘Flo’ Mpisane.
While the storm raged on, the couple stayed on in their happy bubble, and barely one year later on the 21st of July, 2021, they welcomed yet another bundle of joy. Being that the age gap between their two kids is not much, many assumed the second child was not planned. They named their second daughter Likuwe ‘Coco’ Mpisane.
Now well known as Andile Mpisane’s baby mama, Shozi has received both negative and positive criticism from different quarters for her choices. Things got heated up again when the duo shared a video of a brand new BMW gift from Andile to his baby mama. The negativity and all, there is no doubt that Sithelo Shozi is living her best life.
Andile’s Mother Mamkhize Never Accepted Sithelo For her Son
It started from the rumor that Andile’s mother MaMkhize was not at all happy when news came that Sithelo had delivered her second grandchild. Recall she had not been in support of the relationship from the very beginning. It was said that she thinks of the singer and DJ as an opportunist who is trying to get into the Mpisane family by all means.
MaMkhize had made it obvious that she didn’t approve of Sithelo’s relationship with her son and made it clear that she would only recognize a wife but never a baby mama. She pointed out that Sithelo is seven years older than her son and also accused the DJ of trying to use pregnancy as a means of becoming part of the royal family.
Sithelo and Andile Had A Messy Break-Up
It is no news that Sithelo and Andile are long over each other. Some would say they bowed to the negativity and pressure that the media targetted on their young relationship. After all, one can only stay positive against such negativity for only so long.
Things went sour for the lovers after it emerged that Andile Mpisane had questioned the paternity of their second daughter. They did not release any details on whether a test was carried out and what it revealed. However, it is safe to say that all did not go well because it led to the end of the relationship.
The story gets more complicated with rumors that Sithelo Shozi was thrown out of Mpisane’s house, and some of the cars, including the BMW he bought for her recently, were forcefully taken from her. They also allegedly took her first daughter, Baby Flo from her.
While she has refuted these claims, it is apparent that all is not well because even though MamKhize released a statement to counter the rumors of ill-treatment against the mother of her grandchildren, there are still a lot of holes in the story. First, even though she clearly stated that she bears no grudge against the mother of her grandkids, fans have noted that she does not post pictures of her second grandchild Coco as much as she does for Flo.
Questions still abound over their breakup and how fast Andile moved on. He had allegedly gone car shopping with Shozi in November and proposed to Tamia a month later in December. The famous footballer secretly wedded Tamia Louw in December 2021. The newlyweds have also welcomed a child together.
Sithelo Shozi Has a Son From a Previous Relationship
Before her saga with Andile Mpisane, the influencer had a son from a previous relationship So in all, Sithelo Shozi has three children. The name of her firstborn and only son is Makhosini Nhlelozikathixo Maseko aka Baby Makhosini after his father. She had the boy on the 16th of March 2016 from her relationship with Makhosini Maseko aka Lord Phil.
The birth of Baby Makhosini was allegedly just as complicated as the birth of her second daughter because, at the time, her baby daddy was very much married. This would mean that at the time they got involved, Lord Phil’s wife Thandeka Sibiya was still in the picture.
It is not known just how involved Lord Phil is in the upbringing of his son and whether the two even have a working relationship. But what is certain is that his marriage to Thandeka did not survive the scandal. The two got divorced amongst allegations that Sithelo and her friends were trolling Thandeka online and calling her a second wife.
Who Is Sithelo Shozi Dating Now?

Although she has not said anything about the true situation of things between them, Phumlani posted a loved-up picture of them which fans took to mean that they are an item. However, considering how her well-publicized relationship with Mpisane ended, it seems she wants to keep her new relationship away from the media and naysayers.
However, she has made it clear that marriage is not her ultimate goal and she just wants a partner who loves her and is willing to take on life with her. However, she did not rule it out entirely. She is open to being persuaded if she finds the right person and he is open to making things legal.
