Thabo Mabogwane is best known as Thabo Smol from the Black Motion group. The group was formed in 2009 before the two founders of the group went separate ways in 2022. Bongani ‘Murda’ Mohosana is the former member who dumped the group after getting married to DJ Zinhle. He has since gone solo despite rubbishing claims of splitting. Well, who is Thabo Smol from Black Motion?
With an illustrious career spanning years, Thabo Smol has since established himself as one of Mzansi’s finest. No doubt he is one of the best percussions in Mzansi. However, his career has seen him making all sorts of headlines for the wrong reasons leaving a lot to be desired, from sharing the bed with Zodwa Wabantu to an alleged relationship with Kelly Khumalo.
Thabo Smol’s Age and Family
It comes as a shocker that he is older than we thought. Despite keeping his private life under wraps, we have connected the dots regarding his age, thanks to birthday posts. The bubbly musician was born in Soshanguve, North Pretoria, South Africa, on 24 April 1986. As of 2022, he is 36 years old.
However, in the mix of things, he has managed to let Mzansi sneak into his private life. Recently, he has taken to social media to show off his family. She often posts about his sister called Nthabiseng. In some of his recent posts, he shared pictures of his parents, leaving us more than convinced that he is still very close with them.
Bedroom incident with Zodwa Wabantu
During her interview on Podcast and Chill with MacG, Zodwa Wabantu pulled a shocker when she revealed that she slept with one of Black Motions DJs. After MacG cornered her, she recently dropped the name of Thabo into the equation. She revealed that it was nothing serious, but they were having fun. The bubbly dancer even asked for more one-night stands.
Alleged Relationship with Kelly Khumalo
In September 2021, she hogged headlines when her alleged relationship with Kelly Khumalo flooded social media. The alleged relationship came to light when the two shared pictures on their Instagram accounts at the exact location.
To make matters worse, Khumalo revealed that she had stolen some stocks from someone. Mzansi then noticed that the stocks were the same Thabo worn in previous pictures shared on Instagram.
Thabo Smol’s Wife and Children
He is not married but has been in a long-term relationship with Rakgadi Sedy Koetle. The two have a daughter who was born in 2018 and named Refentse Tshimologo Mabogwane. Of interest is that her girlfriend happens to be a sister to Scandal! Actress Mapaseka Koetle-Nyokong who stars as Dintle.
Despite the two have a daughter together, they have made all sorts of headlines for the wrong reasons with their relationship. They broke up not once but twice. Their relationship went south two times, and at some point, it got nasty that relatives from both ends were called in to find common ground between them. However, reports have it that cheating allegations marred the affair for years.
