Sources close to the couple, who did not want to be named to maintain cordial relations with the pair, said A-Reece, real name Lehlohonolo Mataboge, met Thahane when they were shooting a video for his hit song Mgani in Diepkloof, Soweto, just over a month ago.
“Natasha was hired by A-Reece’s stable Ambitiouz Records to be in the video and he couldn’t hide his feelings for her. Since then, they have been seen together at social events looking all lovey-dovey,” said a musician.
The musician also said A-Reece told him Thahane was the love of his life but wanted to keep their affair hush hush.
“He wants to know her before he could go public about their relationship,” he said.
Thahane, who is the grandchild of iconic cleric Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, could not deny nor confirm their dalliance.
“You and your reliable source! Hai. A-Reece and I are good friends, I support him because he is a talented [musician],” she said.
A-Reece said: “Oh s**t man, I don’t discuss my private life with the media, this is obviously private information.”
Another musician confirmed A-Reece was drinking at Thahane’s inviting lips and the two were happy together.
“The boy believes that Natasha will help him focus on his career and stay away from things that will defocus him. I agree with him, you can see that Natasha is a decent and disciplined young woman. Sometimes in life you need a woman who can whip you into line whenever you go astray. I hope they are truly meant for each other,” said the second musician.
A third musician also confirmed the rapper and the former Skeem Saam actress were an item.
“It’s a known thing in our circle although the two of them don’t want go public yet. They always post pictures of each other on social media accounts. They are still young and they must not rush into things if they want their relationship to last long enough,” said the musician.
