Zodwa Wabantu sparked dating rumours after she posted a picture of herself and a young man on her Instagram page, with her followers sharing split reactions to the romance speculations.
On Monday, 16 September 2019, the controversial South African entertainer posted a selfie taken by the unidentified young man, where both of them are smiling into the camera.

Zodwa’s post has received over 9 000 likes and multiple comments from her followers asking if the man in the picture is her new partner. The first comment stated, “I really fail to understand why it seems to be a problem when older women date younger guys, but when older guys date younger women it’s no problem. [South Africans are really disrespectful, we will date older women if we want]” Zodwa was the first to reply to the comment with a laughing emoji.
When another follower of Zodwa asked her in isiZulu to reveal whether or not this was the new man in her life, Zodwa asked her to be patient, stating that all would be revealed soon. Another comment said “Sis’ Zodwa, not to be rude, [but] please find an old man. [Preferably around the] ages [of] 54, 55, 57, 60?” Always a good sport, Zodwa responded by saying, “Okay my love, and he must be a millionaire!”
