Some of our stars have used social media to reveal their young and gorgeous partners. Other entertainers have been slammed on social media for dating people that are even 10 years younger than them.
Briefly.co.za takes a look at four Mzansi stars who have recently made headlines for proudly dating outside their age.
1. Rapper AKA
The Fela In Versace rapper just cannot get enough of his beautiful bae Nelli Tembe. Just when we all though AKA would never find the one, Nelli showed up and rocked his world. Briefly.co.za has seen Supa Mega fall fast and hard for Nelli. His new love interest is younger than him and he is in his first relationship for a long time. The rapper has bragged on social media that the 21-year-old is very private.
2. DJ Maphorisa
Phori, 33, recently came under fire after it emerged that he is allegedly dating a 19-year-old. This comes after the teen influencer was exposed by her friend on social media. The conversation shifted to Maphorisa with many criticising him for entertaining younger women. Influencer Cyan Bouke accused her former friend, Beverly (who is also a brand influencer) of dating the Mzansi muso. She posted a screenshot of a conversation with her where Beverly revealed that she is dating the Amapiano artist.
3. Actress Khanya Mkangisa
The Muvhango actress recently trended on social media after snaps of her all over J Molley went viral. Mzansi men complained about "double standards" because women shared that they love the cute couple. Men took to Twitter to question why DJ Maphorisa, 33, was bashed by tweeps for dating a 19-year-old girl but Khanya, who is 32, was praised for dating the 21-year-old rapper. They accused Khanya of also being a "predator".
4. Exotic dancer Zodwa Wabantu
Zodwa is known in Mzansi for dating younger men than her. The media personality recently revealed that she is currently DMing young Gomora actor Ntobeko Sishi. She insisted that she is not looking for anything serious with him and merely wants to have some fun. The socialite has expressed that she doesn't want to date old men who have too many demands. She shared that she had previously dated Khanyi Mbau's ex, Mandla Mthembu, and he was just too old for her.
In other entertainment news, Briefly.co.za reported that Sho Madjozi sizzled up last Friday with two stunning pics of herself. The musician shared two cute snaps on social media and Mzansi men flooded her comment section to propose.
The stunner took to Twitter on Friday, 23 October and posted the snaps of herself looking gorgeous in black braids. The John Cena hitmaker captioned her post:
"And I’m really gearing up for a good season. If you see me turning up there’s a good reason!"
Madjozi's admirers from all over Mzansi flooded her comment section as soon as she posted the pics. Most of the men asked the star to marry them.
