Disebo Makatsa is a South African woman who rose to prominence after she began having an affair with DJ Sbu. The two kept their relationship under wraps for a long time before it emerged that they were an item. Unlike DJ Sbu, Makatsa was not a celebrity when they met and was not raised under the spotlight.
Ever since the two went their separate ways, a lot has happened between the two. They have since moved on with their lives but have remained friends for the sake of the only person that brings them together – their beautiful daughter.
Disebo Makatsa Was Born In The Late 80s In Free State Province
Disebo Matatsa was reportedly born in 1986 in Welkom, the second-largest city in the Free State Province in South Africa. The name of her mother is Shirley, but we do not know the name of her father, her parents’ origin, occupations, and their lives generally.
Also, there is no information about Disebo’s family history, background, early life, and childhood, and upbringing. It’s not also clear if she is an only child or not. However, it is said that DJ Sbu’s ex-girlfriend speaks four languages fluently. These languages include English, Zulu, Southern Sotho, and Afrikaans.
As mentioned earlier, Makatsa was not raised under the spotlight, nor was she born into a family of famous folks. This explains why there’s little information about her family background and some aspects of her personal life.
She Has Some Pretty Impressive Credentials
Disebo may never have walked down the red carpet by reason of her relationship with a respected celebrity entertainer during their time together. Still, she has quite several enviable credentials to her name. She has always believed in education and its importance in moulding and shaping people towards the right direction right from a young age. This is why she never rested on her oars after she bagged her first degree.
She kept pushing for more certificates, and today, we are not surprised that she is already enjoying the fruits of her labour. Makatsa’s academic journey began at Epworth School in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, and later at the University of Pretoria, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Geoscience in the year 2007.
Three years later, she enrolled in Wits Business School to pursue a management course, New Manager’s Program. Within the same year and in the same school, DJ Sbu’s former partner enrolled for a post-graduate course, graduating in 2011 with a Post Graduate Diploma. Still in the same 2011, Disebo enrolled for her Master’s programme at Wits Business School, graduating in 2012 with an MBA in Commerce and Management.
Her Career Journey Has Been A Flourishing One
Career-wise, Disebo Makatsa has been doing great over the years. She currently works with the renowned Johannesburg-based company Pan African Resources, a subsidiary company of the Shanduka Group (PTY) Ltd. She joined the firm in 2011, and she currently serves as the group project manager there. Before joining Pan African Resources, the geoscientist worked at Central Rand Gold as a planner for technical services.
She left the establishment after three years, having joined them in 2008. She’s also the CEO of the non-profit organization, Sibusiso Leope Education Foundation. Further information about her career is not open to public scrutiny, and it is difficult to tell if her relationship with her baby daddy helped her career in any way or not.
Disebo And DJ Sbu’s Romance Did Not Make It To The Finish Line Despite Much Media Attention
Makatsa was plucked out of obscurity by DJ Sbu through their friendship. She literally owes her rise to prominence to the entertainment mogul. Unfortunately, not much is known about their relationship from the beginning and how long they dated before their friendship became public knowledge. In essence, when, how, and where the pair met were shrouded in mystery.
The public became aware of their relationship in 2013 when it emerged that the two got engaged and were expecting a baby together. Disebo and DJ Sbu’s relationship turned sour in 2015 and subsequently came to a messy end in the same year.
The entertainment mogul’s ex-girlfriend allegedly cheated on him with the controversial businessman Edwin Sodi. Makatsa, in response, explained that she never cheated on her man and that separately amicably, adding that she would always respect the father of her child but would like to focus on her career and child.
The Pair’s Intimate Moments Produced An Offspring
The geoscientist and her former partner had one child together, a baby girl named Waratwa Leope. She was born on October 28, 2014, in South Africa. Not much is known about Waratwa’s private life and her everyday activities. However, we know that she is busy with her academics and enjoying all the love her parents and grannies shower on her.

Being the daughter of a public figure, the young girl has been seen on several occasions with her daddy having fun. Little Wawa, as she is fondly called, also has a Twitter account which is being handled by her daddy. The account has a number of her pictures and videos with her father and some other useful updates.

A good number of Wawa’s pictures prove that she has been under her father’s roof. The popular entertainer has been actively involved in his daughter’s upbringing, as seen on her Twitter page. However, after a thorough search on the page, we discovered there’s no picture of the little with her mother.
Well, Disebo, who has been living a quiet life after her nasty breakup with the TV and radio presenter, may have been involved in her daughter’s life without ‘screaming it.’ However, it is difficult to tell how Makatsa’s relationship with her daughter has been since she parted ways with her baby daddy.
Makatsa Was Reportedly Dumped After Parting Ways With Sbu
A few months after Disebo dramatically ended her relationship with DJ Sbu, she kept making headlines for seeing another man who reportedly spoilt and lavished her with gifts. However, the said man, Edwin Sodi, didn’t confirm or deny the relationship, unlike Disebo, who vehemently denied having anything to do with the businessman.
Sodi, a divorcee and serial dater, was later reported to have dumped Disebo for a younger pretty lady called Kefilwe Mabote. The businessman started dating Mabote, a social media influencer, in late 2018, and by December 2020, they had gone their separate ways.
Who Has DJ Sbu’s Baby Mama Dated Since They Separated?
Disebo’s love life since their separation is one aspect of her life that has been under wraps for reasons best known to her. The geoscientist has been living a quiet life since their separation, and the cheating drama ended, keeping a low profile on every aspect of her life. Makatsa hasn’t been in the news for being friends or dating any man since she broke up with DJ Sbu. She is focused on her career and taking care of her child with her ex-fiance.
