It was a case of mistaken identity when a fan thought Maps Maponyane and Nomzamo Mbatha were back together after Maps had posted a picture hugging a woman on Instagram who looked like Nomzamo from the back. The picture was captioned “Any excuse to celebrate, is always good enough to celebrate, especially when you’re celebrating your people.” To which a fan gushingly commented, “Oh My God I was praying for you and Nomzamo to get back together, my prayers answered, my favourite couple.” The television presenter, actor and model Maps and Isibaya actress Nomzamo were together for several years and broke up over Maps allegedly cheating on Nomzamo in May 2018. Though Maps spokesperson denied these allegations vehemently.
Maps corrected her “Nah that’s @leddi-g” tagging Leddi_g in the comment. Leddi-g is Naledi Radebe a lifestyle and travel blogger. Though the picture did look a bit like Nomzamo from the back and the caption a little misleading this fan just saw what she wanted to see, her favourite couple together because even if it was Nomzamo, a hug between exes doesn’t mean they are back together. The fan was not alone though in wishing the couple got together another fan commented that “I wish they could sort things out.” There is no denying that the couple were striking together and well loved by their fans.
Both seem to be still single though Maps has been linked to rapper Boity Thulo and Cape Town influencer Nadia Jaftha. In both cases it has turned out to be unfounded rumours. Nomzana has also been rumored to be with Sportsman Kagiso Rabada but it has not been confirmed yet. Two days ago Nomzamo wrote a long appreciation post for her Isibaya co-star Sdumo Matshala. Part of it read “Grateful to have told the most beautiful love story. Grateful to have gained one of my very best friends.” If you remember with me when rumours of Maps and Nomzamo started they too claimed to be just best buddies. So what do you think Tea Squad should the two get back together or are they better off single after all there are so many fish in the sea.
