Rumours about Bonang Matheba’s boyfriend all appear to be pointing in the same direction: towards one half of the Major League DJz duo, Banele Mbere.

It’s a rumour that refuses to go away and if you believe that there’s no smoke without fire, you might be inclined to suspect that something real is happening between Bonang and Banele. Rumours about their speculated romance resurfaced this weekend and although neither of them has confirmed or denied that something may be going on, social media neutrals are beginning to have their own suspicions.

Bonang’s love life is back in focus

Bonang Matheba once said “They have to talk about you, because when they talk about themselves, nobody listens”. The entertainment queen must be tired of finding herself on the front page of the biggest publications every single week and this past weekend was no different. This time around it was her love life that made trending news as dozens of publications added fuel to a long running fire.

Bonang and Banele Mbere (from Major League DJz) have been linked to one another on numerous occasions over the past year and those rumours resurfaced on Friday as tweeps suspected that something was going on between the two A-list entertainers. This time around, the speculation seemed to stem from a number of news reports that were regurgitating information from 2019 which linked the superstar presenter with the Pianochella DJ.

At the time, entertainment journalist Media Girl Chronicles shared a post that seemed to suggest that there was definitely a budding romance between Bonang and Banele, and it seems as if this was enough to get the public talking once again.

Neither Bonang nor Banele has responded to the speculation as they both seem intent on handling their reported romance privately.

What do we know about the Major League Twins?

The duo make up one of South Africa’s biggest DJ-ing acts and although they try to keep out of the celeb/gossip limelight, they are among the biggest movers and shakers in the entertainment industry.

1. They have dated big stars

Both Banele and Bandile have dated some of Mzansi’s hottest celebrities. Banele dated mega-influencer Mihlali Ndamase while Bandile was romantically tied to Nadia Nakai for some time.

2. They are the biggest twin DJs in the country

Mzansi has its fair share of twins in the industry (Including the Qwabe twins, and fellow DJs Twinzondecks) but none match the size and stature of the Major League twins who have made a name for themselves by producing hit after hit and franchising their own events.

3. They are friends with all our faves

From Cassper Nyovest to Riky Rick, Major League DJz are not only popular with their fans, they are popular in the entertainment industry too.

4. They kept us entertained during lockdown

If you were bored during lockdown, it’s likely you might have stumbled upon their Balcony Mixes, which brought some much needed entertainment during otherwise dull times.

5. Banele and Bonang live in the same residential estate
