Collen Mashawana, who is said to date Thembi Seete, took to social media to share photos of the new house he handed over to a young family.

Briefly.co.za learned the Seshego's family house burnt down two weeks ago, and having lost both parents prior to that, they were left with no help.

That's when Mashawana and Afribiz stepped in, vowing to build them a new home.

"When meeting the family and community members we requested 3 weeks to rebuild the house. The house was completed in 2 weeks and today we handed them the keys," he wrote on Facebook on Saturday.
