Though Sinazo Yolwa is very active on social media and shares many things with her followers, she has still managed to keep her private life away from the public, so much so that for almost a decade of being active in the entertainment industry, pin-pointing her relationships has been really difficult.

Finally, she later got a place at Green Point, where she lived until she finally matriculated from high school in 2006 with two distinctions In English and Afrikaans. This earned her one of the highest honors any student at Sea Point High School at that time could get, and that was the Stephen Young Scholarship.
Sinazo continued her education by applying to study at the University of Cape Town in 2007.

Sinazo Yolwa is just fine with uploading pictures and videos about herself, her jobs, brands that she wants to endorse, and pictures of herself having fun and just living a comfortable life on social media, and that’s what she wants people to see and know about her.

8. Sinazo Yolwa Might Actually Be In A Relationship
While Sinazo may find it easy to keep her private and relationship life away from the public, it is not an easy task for the love of her life who wants to let the world know that he is the lucky man who has captured her heart. She is allegedly in a relationship with a mystery man named ‘Marcus’ who is also in the TV and film industry. According to close sources, the two are in a happy relationship and understand each other’s work requirements.
Marcus, who understands how difficult it can be to date a celebrity, has been able to understand the demands of Yolwa’s chosen career and has found a perfect way to adapt to it. We can’t say for sure when the supposed love birds started dating as Sinazo has neither confirmed nor denied the dating allegations.
On the other hand, Marcus has confirmed his relationship with the actress, and one of the SUN team overhead her calling him ‘babe’ at the South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTA) in Sun City. There are reports that both of them take turns visiting each other in Australia and South Africa. Until she confirms this, we cannot be so certain.
