Thinah, just like any other celebrity, shares his life through social media. According to his Instagram, Thinah Zungu can be said to be someone who likes his privacy and only shares to the public what needs to be shared. He is seen posting photos of himself, his family as well as his friends. He also posts pictures of his lavish lifestyle and expensive rides. Thinah Zungu, besides all fun and games posts about his career on his Instagram promoting his own name.


When Thinah Zungu is on stage, one might say his life is easy. The devil is, however, said to be in details. In August 2018, Thinah Zungu’s pictures came out of him getting personal and cosy while in the company of a lady who was clearly not his wedded wife. This promiscuous act left most of us questionable not only about his morals but also his respect to God and the Bible teachings.

For those photos, the alleged love birds had put on different attires, and the woman’s hairstyle appears to be different, meaning they had been captured on completely different days. The woman who was said to be the one in the photo with Zungu, Buhle Nzimane, was asked about it by a source, but she dismissed the allegations of the affair.

Buhle defended herself saying Thinah Zungu is a celebrity and takes photos with anyone. When asked further why there were only 4 pictures of the two of them in each others company, she got angry and aggressive. She said,

If the story gets published, I will sue the newspaper.

According to another source, Buhle Nzimane is a former girlfriend Thinah Zungu dated before he became famous. The source claimed,

Buhle Nzimane is his slay queen. When they dated back then, Thinah was not on her level. Now that he’s a celebrity, it’s a better fit.

The source also pointed out that Buhle always posts photos of places she goes with Thinah. Thinah also spoils Buhle with expensive clothes and lives in an apartment paid by Thinah.

Numerous attempts to contact Zungu and his wife Zama after the drama were all in vain.

Thinah Zungu, however, responded later through another source about the allegations. He confirmed that Buhle was his Ex-girlfriend. He also said that Buhle Nzimane loved his music, so she attended most of his shows. He also talked about the photos and said they were photos they took while they were still dating. He, however, agreed that he started seeing Buhle because they were having marital difficulties with his wife, whom he married in 2012. He said:

My wife and I were having problems around that time. When we fixed our problems, I stopped my relationship with Buhle. But when I met Buhle at events, we would take pictures together or talk on the phone as she is a fan of my music.
