Everyone at one point believed Afro-pop music duo Mafikizolo was a couple.
South Africans online have said Mafikizolo’s Theo Kgosinkwe and Nhlanhla Nciza owe the country a relationship after all those years of making people believe they were dating.
The group burst into the scene in 1997 as a kwaito group with their late member Tebogo Madingoane, who died on 14 February 2004.
The group was signed under DJ Oskido’s label Kalawa Jazmee.
When Tebogo died, Theo and Nhlanhla decided not to replace him, becoming a duo.Over the years, Mafikizolo has belted timeless hits like Kwela Kwela, Sibongile, Udakwa Njalo, Khona, Happiness with Mr May D, Tchelete with Davido and Ngeke Balunge.
As a stamp of approval for the group’s musical prowess, Mafikizolo has won 14 South African Music Awards (SAMA) and 2 MTV Africa Music Awards.
Despite Mafikizolo being one of the best groups to come out of Mzansi, the duo is also quite popular for being the perfect relationship fit.
Their chemistry in the studio and on stage always dazzled their fans in South Africa and across the borders. Despite their supposed “compatibility”, they both have separate love lives.
Nhlanha was married to label owner Thembinkosi “TK” Nciza, and they divorced last year after spending 15 years together.Similarly, Theo was married to Rose Kgosinkwe for 15 years, and they separated in 2018.
Theo Kgosinkwe remarried Vourne in 2021 after dating for three years, and they have a cute daughter together.
Regardless, Mzansi feels Theo and Nhlanhla should have dated. Who knows, maybe they would have never even divorced had they been together. Check out the reactions from Facebook.
