From Twitter enemy No 1 to most-loved couple, there is no denying that Bonang Matheba and AKA are a couple to be reckoned with. Their relationship has always been the talk of the Twitter streets, mostly because of how it started.
Reports of their relationship started last year when DJ Zinhle took to her blog to confirm that the two had been in a relationship, with AKA cheating on her while she was still pregnant with their only child, Baby K.
The two denied the reports until this year when they started talking about each other in interviews and posting pictures of each other on social media and ultimately, winning You Spectacular Favourite Couple of the Year award.
In the past few weeks, reports emerged, claiming their relationship was on the rocks, with “sources close to the couple” claiming Bonang was not pleased when AKA reportedly posted a picture on Instagram of himself with Minnie Dlamini and Fikile Mbalula at the ANC’s manifesto launch.
The two further deleted pictures of each other on Instagram, fuelling break-up rumours, and Bonang also blocked those who asked why she had deleted the pictures, claimed the reports.
Apparently AKA had been given a last warning to stop taking pictures with female celebrities his girlfriend did not like.
“They won’t break up, they love each other. Like any other girl, she was pissed off. I’m not sure these two pretty girls are aware of it,” a source said.
It seems the “source” was right as Bonang and AKA have been posting pictures of each other on Instagram, showing the world their love was still very much alive. On Tuesday, Queen B posted a picture of Louis Vuitton bags which she says she got from her “king”, as she calls him.
How do they keep their romance alive? One may wonder.
Queen B spoke to SABC 3’s Afternoon Express and explained to Bonnie Mbuli how she keeps the flame burning, watch:
