Cape Town – Adele has been enjoying a string of dates with British rapper Skepta, whose full name is Joseph Junior Adenuga, and close friends predict the pair will become an item soon!

The 31-year-old Hello singer has been in regular contact with the grime artist since her split from ex-husband Simon Konecki in April, Sun UK reports.

She even celebrated the 37-year-old’s birthday during a night out in London less than two weeks ago.

"Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up. They have a close bond and there’s definitely a special connection," a source revealed.

"They’re spending more and more time together. Some of their friends are hoping and predicting they could end up being a great couple one day.

"They’re both private about their love lives and they’re both committed to their children first and foremost as well."

Skepta had a brief relationship with supermodel Naomi Campbell early last year but they split after she discovered he was expecting a child with another woman, Daily Mail reports.

According to news.com.au, representatives for both Skepta and Adele declined to comment.
