South African model and radio presenter Liesl Laurie was in a relationship with ProVerb for three years. ProVerb, originally born Tobego Thekisho, is an accomplished South African rapper and presenter.
The duo were one of South Africa’s favorite couples during the time they were still seeing each other. They were literally so perfect that no one knew they could ever go their separate ways. Liesl and ProVerb may have since moved on. Here are some interesting things to know about their failed relationship.
Liesl and ProVerb Started Dating in 2015
Liesl and Proverb‘s relationship began in the year 2015. Their paths crossed at the Miss South Africa 2015 pageant, which took place on March 29, 2015, at the Sun City Superbowl. While ProVerb was the host of the event, Liesl was the winning contestant.
The two immediately got connected at the event and later became friends. Liesl and ProVerb initially kept their romance away from the public but couldn’t resist showing off their love for each other at some point.
The lovebirds officially confirmed their relationship in 2016, to the excitement of their fan and well-wishers. While their relationship lasted, these two presenters trended on social media frequently, serving couple goals and making people believe that true love exists.
ProVerb and her ex-girlfriends graced the red carpets of several star-studded events together. They constantly posted their beautiful pictures on their respective Instagram accounts, which garnered heart-warming responses from the public.
The two also went on holiday vacations to places like New York, London, Jamaica, and Mexico, to mention a few. Did we mention that they spoiled each other with expensive gifts? Lisel and ProVerb made falling in love look so easy with their public display of love for each other.
Both Laurie and her ex-boyfriend weren’t quite vocal about their affair publicly. However, one could tell that they shared an unbreakable bond. Life in the public eye wasn’t easy, but they did it with class and grace.
What Caused Liesl and ProVerb’s Relationship Breakup?
Liesl and ProVerb’s intense love affair overshadowed every other aspect of their lives so much that their fans were so eager to see them tie the knot. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen in the end.
The public sensed trouble in their paradise after the rapper deleted all their photos together on Instagram. The model followed suit but decided to leave a couple of their pictures together on her Instagram wall.
Their actions led to many speculating that they may have ended their relationship. However, some people who felt Liesl and ProVerb were too loved-up to part ways, started insinuating that they could be revamping their social media accounts.
The presenter later confirmed breaking up with her boyfriend to the media, although she did not go into details about what led to their separation. According to multiple sources, the South African celebrities went their separate ways because ProVerb was giving her the attention she needed.
The rapper was allegedly spending more time with the kids he had with his ex-wife than Liesl. Neither the model nor ProVerb reacted to the rumor or released an official statement on their breakup.
Did Liesl and ProVerb Have Kids Together?
Liesl and ProVerb’s 3-year romance did not produce kids. For the records, they were never engaged, and it was not known if they really had an intention of settling down together as husband and wife.
Being one of the favorite couples back then, all that their fans only wanted was for them to take their relationship to the next level, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen.
The Model Found Her Mr. Right a Few Months After Their Breakup
Liesl Laurie found love again a few months after she moved on from her breakup with her rapper ex-boyfriend. She and her husband’s love story began on social media. They reached out to each other for the first time after a mutual friend shared a social media post about Liesl on 2nd July 2020.
Musa commented on the post and slid into her DM to drop some notes. Since then, the TV presenter has never stopped loving her. The pair announced their engagement on July 27, 2021, after keeping their relationship under wraps for one year.
The former Miss South Africa and radio presenter Liesl and her man officially tied the knot on the 8th of August 2021 in South Africa. The occasion was attended by prominent people in the country, including A-list entertainers.
Laurie is currently living the best moments of her life with the renowned South African medical doctor and TV personality Musa Muthombeni.
Marrying Liesl is one of the best things to ever happen to me.
Words fail me 🖤

There is no Update on ProVerb’s Current Relationship
Tebogo Sidney Thapelo Thekisho has maintained a low profile on his personal life since he broke up with Liesl Laurie. He hasn’t introduced any girl as his lover since then, and neither has he been linked to anyone.
Perhaps, the Kimberley, Northern Cape-born rapper is fully focused on the upbringing of the two kids he had with his ex-wife Onalerona Moreo, a successful businesswoman. The two tied the knot in 2005 and divorced ten years later.
