South African actress, model, musician, and TV presenter Thembi Seete does not have a husband. She is a single mum who shares a son named Dakolo with a Limpopo-born businessman and philanthropist called Collen Mashawana.
The talented actress has not been married before. She was on the verge of becoming a Mrs. some years ago before her relationship with her then-fiance abruptly ended. Presently, it is not known if she and the father of her child still have plans to take their relationship to the next level.
What Is Thembi Seete’s Husband’s Name?
Sensational entertainer Thembi Seete is currently not in a marital relationship with any man or even the father of her child. It is not known if she and her baby daddy are making any effort to legalize their relationship.
And while their fans are patiently waiting for this to happen, the Soweto-born actress seems to be more focused on raising their child than keeping her fans up to speed with happenings between her and her man.
Thembi Seete’s Baby Daddy is Collen Mashawana
When it came to light in the month of February 2018 that Seete was going to have a baby, the most asked question that trailed her pregnancy announcement was the identity of the father of her unborn child.
While she never officially confirmed the paternity of the seed growing in her womb, it later emerged that the man who got her pregnant was Collen Mashawana, a South African popular businessman and philanthropist.
Born and raised in Venda, Collen is one of the wealthiest business moguls in Limpopo. He has touched many lives through his philanthropic efforts not just in his birth region but also across other regions, including Gauteng.
His foundation, the Collen Mashawana Foundation, which was established in 2012, has assisted many disadvantaged people, including the elderly and people living with disabilities. In collaboration with the government, the Collen Mashwana Foundation has changed lives, including building around 300 houses.
Mashawana’s child with Thembi is not his first offspring, unlike the latter, who has not given birth to a child before. The former shares a son named Prince Mashawana with the South African fashion model and actress Lerato Mpho Moloi.
The business tycoon was previously married to Moloi. The duo reportedly ended their marriage due to the model’s infidelity. Collen is a hands-on dad as he is involved in raising the kids he had with these women.
The Actress First Hinted at Her Relationship with Mashawana in 2017
While Thembi Seete is yet to publicly share her love journey with the father of her child, she and Collen are presumed to have met around 2016 or early 2017. The actress admitted to going on dates and meeting a special person in 2017 following a heartbreaking separation from her boyfriend in 2016.
After the revelation, she avoided talking about the mystery man in her life for months. The public became interested in her relationship with Collen Mashawana after the duo was spotted together in pictures on different occasions.
Their suspicions were confirmed at business tycoon Lebo Gunguluza’s lavish white wedding in Mauritius in 2018 when they were spotted in a cozy embrace. Regardless of the child the two share, there are so signs the two are ready to take their relationship to another level yet.
In fact, some sources claim that they have since gone their separate ways but have remained friends due to their son. It is said that Seete has met the business mogul’s family, including the son he had with his first wife.
However, nothing serious has taken place between the two relationship-wise. The actress currently lives in Johannesburg with her son.
Who is Thembi Seete’s Son?
The name of Thembi Seete’s son is Dakolo. He was born on the 11th of April 2018 in South Africa. Dakolo’s arrival was officially confirmed by the actress in February 2018 following several weeks of pregnancy rumor.
The rumor began after the actress was spotted with a baby bump at a public event in early 2018. Although she tried to conceal her growing tummy with a flowing gown, her effort didn’t yield results.
Two months after she announced she was expecting a baby, Thembi Seete welcomed her first child. Dakolo is 5 years old, and he’s being raised away from the spotlight.
He is hardly seen in the pictures Seete shares on social media but gets mentioned and appreciated on special days like his birthday. The young boy sometimes spends time with his father, who may not be present all the time, but is much involved in his upbringing.
Thembi Seete Broke Up With Her First Known Boyfriend After 10 Years
Thembi Seete’s only-known previous relationship was with South African pop singer Bobo Seritsane. The two got connected in 2006 as household names in the entertainment industry.
While their fairy tale romance lasted, the two mesmerized their fans with their public show of love and affection. They graced the red carpets at various star-studded events, went on vacations, featured in each other’s social media pictures together, and served ‘hot’ couple goals.
Their fans became convinced of their love for each other in 2012 when Bobo went down on one knee and asked the model if she would spend the rest of her life with him. Their love blossomed further after she accepted his proposal.
As garnered, the pop singer really wanted to start a family almost immediately after their engagement, but that was not the case with Seete, who needed more time to know her man better and build a strong connection with him ahead of the future.
The duo held on to their love for about three years, but it eventually crashed in 2016, leaving a lot of people disheartened. It’s not clear if Thembi’s alleged reluctance to tie the knot played a role in their separation.
To date, neither the singer nor the actress has publicly shared the exact reason they called off their engagement and ended their 10-year-old relationship. The former Jika Majika presenter only confirmed their separation in the month of October 2017 on her Massiv Metro radio show, where she admitted that she had been single for over one year.
