Big Zulu and Bonang Matheba are close friends. However, the two celebrities sparked dating rumors in March 2022 when a video of them flirting while having a conversation went viral.
Shortly after the rumors circulated, Big Zulu was quick to set the record straight. Queen B, on the hand, continued to fuel the new relationship alert with her comments on social media. It was eventually realized that no romantic relationship existed between the two public figures.
Are Big Zulu and Bonang Matheba in a Relationship?
On March 4th, 2022, a flirty video of Bonang Matheba and Siyabonga Nene (aka Big Zulu) went viral. With the way the two behaved towards each other, it was speculated that Bonang and Big Zulu were dating. In the viral video clip, the celebrities were seen holding hands while having a conversation after the memorial service of Riky Rick at Wanderers Stadium.
Both were full of smiles and laughter, while Queen B was blushing all through the conversation. The chemistry between them was undeniable, and it made the video quite lovely to watch. Amazingly, many Twitter users, who approved of the brewing romance between the two, admitted to watching the video several times.
Even though their body language gave them out and raised suspicion about their relationship, some social media users were of the opinion that the House of BNG owner is out of Big Zulu’s league and thus, won’t make a good match.
How Big Zulu and Bonang Matheba Reacted to the Dating Rumors
After Big Zulu and Bonang Matheba’s rumored relationship made headlines in the country, the Inkabi Records owner was quick to rebuff the rumor. Taking to Instagram on March 8th, 2022, Siyabonga explained that there was nothing romantic brewing between him and the award-winning TV presenter.
He then put an end to the rumor by saying that he was only trying to know his sister, Bonang. Although Big Zulu tried to clear the air, Bonang seemed not to be on the same page with the rapper. She was apparently enjoying the online debate about her relationship with Big Zulu and hence, continued to fuel the dating rumor.

Despite the news of his marriage making rounds in the media, the ‘Donsa Nkabi’ singer has refused to give any information regarding the much-speculated marriage.
Nevertheless, he was forced to comment about his personal life in September 2022.

Replying to the tweep, the musician said in isiZulu, “Don’t play with me.”
