Boity Thulo dispels reports on engagement to Cassper Nyovest

Local hip hop star Cassper Nyovest once said in his hit single Phumakim, “I only f*ck with women that’s as famous as me.’” He wasn’t kidding. 

Reports that Nyovest, born-Refiloe Phoolo, and TV presenter Boity Thulo are engaged sent Twitter into frenzy on Thursday morning. Thulo has since denied them during an interview on Metro FM with Bonang Matheba later on July 16. Thulo did however confirm that she and Nyovest are a couple. 

Drum magazine reports that Nyovest popped the question and Thulo said yes in their latest issue, which features the couple on the cover of the magazine with the quote “It’s official! Cassper pops the question and Boity says yes …” The Doc Shebeleza rapper confirmed their blossoming love on Facebook by declaring that he is “madly in love” with Thulo, who became a hot topic when she showed off her derrière in Marie Claire’s Naked Issue in 2014.

“I just want the world to know how much I’m madly in love with her!!! I can’t hold back!!! She is perfection!!!,” he said on Facebook.

Although the pair denied rumours of their love affair in the past weeks, Nyovest has not been one to keep his love life behind closed door.

In Phumakim, Nyovest raps: “if she ain’t no Amanda du-Point she ain’t tailored for me” about his then relationship to actor Amanda du-Point. But he quickly did a 360 when the short-lived relationship with du-Point ended. Nyovest went public with his love affair with du-Point, who acts on SABC1’s Skeem Saam, at the Channel O Music awards in November 2014, where the pair locked lips on stage and later posted a series of images of them looking all lovey dovey on social media. 

In true theatrical style, he revealed news of the pair’s breakup by changing his lyrics to, ” Even Amanda du-Pont wasn’t tailored for me, now I really f*ck with women as famous as me “, during his performance at the Metro FM music awards earlier this year,  Times Live reported.

One again his love life is being exhibited. Nyovest and Thulo dated in the past when Thulo was still in varsity and before Nyovest got his big break in showbiz. The public doesn’t have to play the guessing game anymore. All we can do now is grab our popcorn, sit back and watch how their publicity stunt plays out.
