He was the mysterious young man Mzansi has seen around Afrotainment star dancer Zodwa Wabantu for a long time and recognized as her boyfriend. Nothing much was known about him until recently when he granted an interview to Drum Magazine.
And now we know a thing or two about Ntobeko Linda. The young man, who was born 23 years ago, began a relationship with Zodwa Wabantu when he was just 19. Yeah, the duo has known each other for the past 4 years.
Although Ntobeko Linda is much younger than Zodwa Wabantu, the two have hit it off and are just great together, with Zodwa Wabantu praising him, his “faithfulness” and other virtues every chance she gets. Recently, she had said to TshisaLIVE: “I’m happy because he always waits for me. I know that he’s a fine man and that he wouldn’t actually struggle to find a less busy girlfriend or even just anyone else but he waits for me.
“Like now, I was in Dubai and my male colleagues, like the people I work with like Naakmusiq and them, they could make any man insecure but not him. He knows I’ll always come back to him as long as he’s waiting for me.”
Given the age disparity between Zodwa Wabantu (33) and Ntobeko Linda (23), some people have taken to calling him Ben 10. Ntobeko Linda, who was raised by a single mother, made it clear in the interview he doesn’t give a damn about people calling him Ben 10, so long as his crush Zodwa Wabantu doesn’t do the same
Said he: “Understanding knows no age. People can call me a Ben 10, I really don’t care. I’m not going to confront them. As long as Zodwa doesn’t call me a Ben 10, I’m fine.”
By the way, while Zodwa Wabantu is famous as a dancer and makes a living dancing, Ntobeko Linda, a banker based in Durban, cannot dance!
