On Friday evening, TRUELOVE hosted a soirée at Inanda Club overlooking the Sandton City skyline to celebrate its February/March 2022 cover star, Thembi Seete.

In attendance were some of the nearest and dearest to Thembi, including her brother Moagi Seete and her son, whom she swoons over as she delves into her experience of motherhood in her cover story. Also in attendance was former Boom Shaka member Theo Nhlengethwa, actress Sannah Mcunu and former Mrs South Africa Matapa Maila, among others.

“I’ve always admired you from afar,” said TRUELOVE Editor-In-Chief Makhosazana Zwane-Siguqa of Thembi.

“I was really happy to get to know you the past few weeks, to get to know your story intimately and personally, to get to know about your child, your own personal journey, how you feel about Theo, how you feel about Junior, Lebo and the entire industry and I can tell you this, we love you very much.”

Thembi said, “Honestly, it wasn’t my plan to have fun and to express my art for more than 25 years and ke nnete ha ba re, ‘when you have a great time, time flies,’ and it flew ka ma nnete.”

The magical evening under the stars ended with an impromptu live performance from Boom Shaka’s very own Thembi and Theo who treated the guests to the 90s hit song It’s About Time. The guests went wild when Thembi sang her now-famous line, "You’ve got to cease the needs that disease with ease".
