SOCCER player, Teko Modise, is off the market, yet again. It is not the first time that the former Bafana Bafana captain makes headlines for putting a ring on it and this time around he tried to leave no trace out there for the media. But it took Move! little effort to find a picture of him wearing a ring and traditional attire on social media.
HE HAS A NEW MRS
In the recent picture of a traditional ceremony, Teko wore a blue and white traditional shirt usually worn at weddings. The caption on the picture said, “All Smiles”, while his Instagram stories showed a background with people also dressed in traditional attire. His followers congratulated him on his new journey. The Cape Town City mid-fielder wore a ring to show that he is indeed taken in one of the pictures.
THIRD TIME LUCKY
When Teko proposed to his ex Lizelle Tabane, he made it known on social media without any hesitation but this time around, he is being subliminal about the woman who has stolen his heart. The 24-year-old social entrepreneur and brand influencer, Lerato Kgamanyane, whom Teko refers to as ‘Berries’ has conveniently been featuring in Teko’s life on social media. The young woman’s picture was recently posted on Teko’s Instagram page with a glittering stone on her finger.
Although it has not been confirmed by the couple, the caption on the picture he posted on her birthday suggests that Teko really cares about Lerato.
“Happiest birthday to the most selfless person I know. Embark (on) this new chapter with grace.
This is the third time that Teko has decided to settle down. In his controversial book titled, The Curse of Teko
Modise, he penned his truth like it has never been heard. In a chapter dubbed Meant to be Friends, he gives reasons for getting married to his former wife Felicia Modise and his marriage proposal to Lizelle.
“With Felicia it was responsibility and with Lizelle it was love,” he says in the book. He unashamedly says that he never loved Felicia but because she was pregnant, he married her out of obligation. Although he admits to having had genuine feelings for Lizelle, the engagement ended badly when Lizelle allegedly spewed lies to the media about Teko. According to Teko, he and the Instagram ‘influencer’ fought because money became a poison in their relationship.
When Move! tried to get Teko’s comment, his publicist, Tumi Mkhondo, claimed she was struggling to get hold of Teko.
