Thebe, the wild man tamed

Music pumping, booze flowing, girls gyrating wildly and singing along to raunchy lyrics are the kind of images that come to mind when you think of this musician.

And rightfully so, because for the past decade he has carved himself a niche as the man who dishes up the kind of controversial lyrics that have become his industry trademark.

It therefore comes as a complete surprise to witness a different side to Thebe Mogane as he walks into the bustling NewsCafe in Midrand, Gauteng.

And, we discover, he isn’t alone – the 39-yearold kwaito star has brought along his beautiful wife, Dioca Mogane (33), and they look stylish dressed casually in jeans.

Thebe, who first became famous for his song Bula Boot, usually keeps a low profile but has decided to introduce his wife and their two children, 10-year-old Katlego and six-month-old Mahlatse, to the media for the first time.

It’s immediately evident that Dioca feels uneasy being exposed to the limelight and is somewhat anxious about giving her first interview to a magazine.
