Buhle Manyathi, professionally known as Boohle, doesn’t have a husband yet. The proud mother of one son, whom she had in her teen years, is single and is not known to have been in any notable relationship in the past few years.
In recent years, the SA singer has been rumoured to have dated some of her colleagues in the music domain, including Josiah De Disciple, one-half of the now-defunct music duo, JazziDisciples.
Is Boohle Married?
Amapiano star Boohle is not married and has never been married. She doesn’t reveal much about her personal life, which she prefers to keep on the low. Boohle is a beautiful lady who has been romantically linked to some of her colleagues. Hopefully, the 22 years old will walk down the aisle with the man of her dreams soon.
Who is Boohle Dating Now?
Boohle is not known to have a boyfriend, as she has not been romantically linked to any partner recently. She is believed to be single. Nevertheless, in 2021, the ‘Ekseni’ crooner was rumoured to be in a relationship with John Sithole (aka John Bravo) and Josiah De Disciple.
Buhle was rumoured to have been in a relationship with Sithole, as both were sighted on many occasions getting cosy around each other. They also shared pictures of their hangouts on social media. However, both never confirmed or denied the rumour.
In the same year, rumours about Boohle dating Josiah De Disciple started making rounds in the country. Both artists have worked together on many occasions, including on the smash single ‘Mama’ from their collaborative album, Umbuso Wabam’nyama, released in 2020.
Following the lyrics of ‘Mama’, which hinted at love and betrayal, the rumour mill had it that Josiah and Boohle made the song about their love life. It was speculated that the two artists were dating when they made the music, and Boohle was the girl that caused the disbandment of JazziDisciples, made up of Josiah and his friend, Mr. JazziQ.
Josiah De Disciple and Buhle Manyathi’s Podcast Drama
In September 2021, when Boohle was a guest on MacG‘s Podcast and Chill with MacG, she debunked the rumour about her dating Josiah De Disciple. She revealed that Josiah was together with someone else while they were working on the single, ‘Mama’ and that the South African DJ is now a married man.
She stated that she had never dated him, clarifying that they were just friends who had a very close working relationship.
One thing I learnt is that be careful who you welcome into your personal space.

Boohle also made more revelations on the podcast that set tongues wagging. She disclosed that she had visited Josiah’s home multiple times based on work engagement, and she never got along well with his wife. Her statement made the DJ regret ever inviting the ‘Mama’ singer to his house. He took to Twitter to advise his followers to be careful who they welcome into their personal space.
He further stated in the same post that after inviting Boohle into his studio and home, she wanted to mess things up for him just for the podcast. It was later discovered that the lady being talked about in ‘Mama’ lyrics wasn’t Boohle. She was allegedly Josiah’s wife, who reportedly dated Mr JazziQ before ending up with Josiah De Disciple.
What to Know About Boohle’s Rumoured Boyfriend, Josiah
Josiah De Disciple had a very close relationship with Buhle Manyathi before her statement on MacG’s podcast put a strain on their relationship. He is a South African DJ and record producer born Josiah Makoela on July 3rd, 1991. His birthplace is Alexandra in Gauteng, and he debuted his career in 2010.
The artist became known in the music scene as one-half of the amapiano DJ duo, JazziDisciples. Following their split in 2018, Josiah moved on to drop a debut studio album titled, ‘Spirits of Makoela, Vol. 2: The Reintroduction’ in 2020. That same year, he, alongside Boohle, released a collaborative album, ‘Umbuso Wabam’nyama’.
And one of the singles from the album, ‘Mama’ was a commercial success. The song was certified gold by the Recording Industry of South Africa (RISA).
Does Boohle Have a Child?
Yes, Boohle is a proud mother of one child. She has a son whom she kept away from the scrutiny eye of the media for a while before showing him off in an Instagram post she shared while celebrating 2021 Mother’s Day. Later in November 2021, the ‘Siyathanda’ hitmaker made a public appearance with her cute son at the South African Amapiano Awards.
Amazingly, she took home two awards that night; South African Amapiano Award for Best Newcomer and South African Amapiano Award for the Best Amapiano Female Vocalist. Although Boohle loves kids, raising her son while still struggling to break out in the music industry wasn’t an easy journey for the 22 years old.
With the singer not having a steady income for some years doing music, she decided to leave her son with her mother. The decision was frowned upon by her mother, and thus, they had a lot of struggles with that. The two now have a mutual understanding, and Boohle can now take proper care of her son, having had her break-out year in 2021.
Who is Boohle’s Baby Daddy?
Boohle began a tricky motherhood journey as a teenager. The father of her son is still a secret as the famed vocalist doesn’t like sharing details about her private life with the public.
Following her close relationship with music producer Josiah De Disciple and the connection between the lyrics of their collaborative work, it was rumoured that Josiah was the father of Boohle’s son. The lyrics discussed how two friends fought over a lady who soured their relationship. And one eventually had a child with her.
From the lyrics, it was concluded by social media users that the lady was Boohle. Also, it was rumoured that she was the reason the music duo, JazziDisciples got disbanded in the year 2020, and she ended up with Josiah, with whom she had a son.
On her appearance on Channel O’s Podcast and Chill with MacG, the award-winning singer refuted the rumour that the lyrics of her song “Mama” was about her and Josiah. She made it clear that she has her own child while the music producer has his own child, and they do not share a child together.
