Suttle hook-up for DJ Sbu?

2012-05-12 17:09

“Terry who?” might as well be the question Sama winner and TS Records co-founder DJ Sbu Leope asks himself these days.

According to various sources, the gravelly voiced DJ who had a short-lived relationship with Tsotsi star and L’Oréal ambassador Terry Pheto may have found love in the arms of rising songbird Lindiwe Suttle.

If her name sounds familiar, it’s because she’s the progeny of the original Mzansi talk show queen, Felicia Mabuza-Suttle.

She has been making a name for herself with her debut album, Man Made Moon, and has cemented herself as a style icon who’s a favourite with designers for fearlessly wearing – and pulling off – avant-garde garments on her slender, statuesque frame.

The pair was first spotted in Sun City at the Samas two weeks ago.

“They were sitting next to each other and that wasn’t just a coincidence. Lindiwe was on Sbu’s right-hand side with Zahara placed between the DJ and his business partner, TK Nciza,” said a source who was seated close by.

According to the deep throat, the pair appeared “cosy”, with the DJ occasionally leaning over and whispering into her ear.

“It’s easy to see why Sbu would fall madly in love. That woman is a beauty and looks glamorous, especially in the see-though dress she was wearing,” said the source.

Another source spotted the couple in the lobby of the Palace the morning after the ceremony.

“Sbu didn’t even get up to go to his business partner, TK, when he stopped at the entrance of the hotel. He wasn’t budging from Lindiwe’s side.”

A few minutes later, the two left in a silver Range Rover Evoque, with Sbu sitting in the passenger seat while Suttle, in nude skyscraper heels and a turban, drove.

“I’m not sure what’s going on there, but who leaves together from Sun City if you’re not there together?” asked the mole.

But the DJ laughed off the rumour and denied any romantic connection to Suttle, saying they are “just friends”.

“We were just sitting next to each other at the awards and I came across her in the lobby. She’s a cool person, but there’s nothing going on there. Unfortunately, I’m too busy for a relationship with anybody right now,” he said.

Suttle also denied the rumour, saying Leope is her “music mentor” who is a good friend to her and her family. “I’m married to my music right now.”
