Former Isithembiso actress Nandi Mbatha and Isono actor and singer Anga Makubalo, professionally known as Naakmusiq have split.
Sources say Naakmusiq called things off with Nandi. Although there has been no official word from the two yet, two sources revealed the split.
A close friend who refused to be named for fear of victimization said Nandi and Naakmusiq officially split two weeks ago.
“They are no longer together and Naak asked Nandi to leave his place. She has been living with a friend for some days now. She isn’t taking the break-up too well,” said the close friend.
In May this year, the couple sparked speculation they were dating with Instagram posts.
The two kept things on the low until Nandi posted a picture of herself and her alleged new bae.
Nandi posted a picture of herself with a man whose face was dimmed but what gave it away was the leg tattoo which resembled Naakmusiq’s tattoo.
Nandi has since deleted images of them together and has unfollowed Naakmusiq.
Another source said Naakmusiq had become too busy and wanted to focus on his booming career and his business venture – a new gin brand called Royal Flush Gin.
The reason for the breakup is not clear.
Naakmusiq could not be reached for comment at the time of publication.
Speaking on an Instagram live broadcast on 23 September, Nandi expressed how she believed men were trash and how they do not take women seriously.
“Men don’t take us seriously,” she said on the live stream.
Nandi’s publicist Yaya Mavundla said she was not aware of the status of their relationship and requested that the actress should comment directly.
Attempts to gain comments from both Nandi and Anga drew a blank.
Nandi was earlier this year reported to be dating 24-year-old junior creative at Quiteria Atelier Mpho Motsi but the relationship ended in less than two months.
