Social media was recently sent into a frenzy following speculation that television star Boity Thulo is definitely off the market and dating her ‘secret lover’. Who else could it be, whom she is rumoured to be secretly in a relationship with other than Maps Maponyane. Although the two have been spotted getting cosy many times, they have both shot down reports that they are dating, maintaining that they are just close friends.
However, the two recently ignited the rumour mill after exchanging sweet messages on social media. This was after Maps penned a very warm and cute message to Boity whilst wishing her a happy birthday. Taking to his Instagram account, Maps wrote:
‘Like the joy, the memories are endless. I hope I let you know often enough just how grateful I am for you. Happy Birthday and Happy Big 3.0.!. I’m excited for all that this next decade has in store for you, and all the fun you’ll be having while scaling those heights. This is only the beginning.’
Boity responded with a cute message of her own.
‘Mapsy! Thank you so much for being you to me! I love and appreciate you wholeheartedly! Thank you for everything!’
Speculation over the pair’s romance has been swirling for over a year. On her reality show, Own your thrown, Boity weighed the possibility that she and her alleged secret lover, Maps, could get married since both are currently single.
In March fans of the pair had their tongues wagging after Boity shared cosy photographs of herself and Maps at his 30th birthday celebrations. However, although both camps have denied rumours that they are having a secret affair, fans are convinced that the pair are dating, and the internet is not short of evidence to prove the pair are more than just friends.
