Touch is now married to the model and PR agency owner, Nаndі Ganda. The two lovebirds secretly married in 2014, and Touch confirmed 4 days later during his show that he was happily married and had not looked at another woman after tying the knot. However, in 2015, there was trouble in paradise when everyone was expecting the couple's big wedding. The DJ even moved out of their family home in Fourways to an apartment in Sandton, and the wedding was called off.
Obviously, the couple sorted out their issues and are still together, happily married, and raising their son, Zuri. It is amazing how Nandi, Tbo, and Thuli co-parent Ruri, as evidenced by the Instagram posts shared by the trio. See what Thuli told Drum magazine.
Co-parenting is all about putting your best foot forward. Nandi makes it so easy for me, she shows up for me. When I can’t take Ruri to a soccer match due to my schedule, she does it for me.”
