Simphiwe Ngema and Tino Chinyani’s son, Tiyani, turns one

Simphiwe Ngema has confirmed that her son, Tiyani, recently turned one, marking the continued relationship between her and Tino Chinyani.

Simphiwe Ngema took to Instagram on Wednesday, 23 June 2021, to announce that her son, Tiyani Michael Kemorena Chinyani, has turned one. Tiyani is Simphiwe’s first child with boyfriend, Tino Chinyani. Their pregnancy and relationship revelation was one of the most topical matters in 2020. Ngema surprised South Africa with her pregnancy announcement, which was later revealed to have come after she had already given birth to Tiyani.

Moreover, her relationship with Tino was probed by the public. This ranged from Tino’s outspoken social media personality, to the matter of his resemblance to Ngema’s late husband, Dumi Masilela, who passed away in a tragic shooting. However, the two have remained steadfast in their relationship, despite the backlash.

On Father’s Day, Sunday, 20 June 2021, Ngema wrote a touching post to Tino, stating, “I am honestly in awe of the father you have become. You excel in this role. I couldn’t have imagined that you’d be this great at it. We love you so much and we are blessed to have you Baba ka Tiyani.”
