Over the years, Maps has publicly gushed about his girlfriend, and that’s why it came as no surprise when he admitted to being a hopeless romantic in a recent interview with Dennis Ngango.
“I’m an absolute hopeless romantic, I wear my heart on my sleeve and I try to make meaningful relationships with every encounter I have”
Maps went on to add that he wished he had known the importance of patience in a relationship at a younger age.
“The advice I’d give myself is to be patient about myself and the other person, make sure I’m in check and my ish is in check, instead of actually trying to get the other person to end up being the person that fills all those gaps, know that you’re happy enough and know yourself well enough to be able to go into that and be independent with your love as opposed to depending on someone else completing whatever lacks within you.”
What to read next: Is Maps Maponyane denying cheating allegations?
It's interesting to note that Maps' relationship 'extra lessons' come just 2 weeks after it was confirmed that Mzansi's golden couple, Nomzamo Mbatha and Maps Maponyane, have split.
The couple, who had become firm favourites on the celebrity scene and often referred to each other as 'best buddies,' apparently called it quits after cheating rumours involving Maps emerged.
"The cheating rumours are nothing new but Nomzamo got proof that couldn't be disputed. She's upset. She didn't expect this," an insider said.
Those close to Nomzamo have said the alleged cheating is even more hurtful because she has been through this before in a previous relationship with a well-known singer.
