In the midst of the positive comments, a troll took an unpleasant jab, insinuating that Khune’s relationship with Sphelele would meet the same fate as his previous one with Minnie Dlamini. Initially brushing it off with laughing emojis, Sphelele eventually responded assertively, questioning the commenter, “Are you God?”
Khune, who has transitioned from his days as a celebrity bachelor to embracing family life, has previously dated well-known personalities like Minnie Dlamini, Sbahle Mpisane, and Ntombi Mzolo. However, his focus has shifted towards his current family of four, with Sphelele being a constant pillar of support.
Acknowledging Khune’s dedication to family life, a follower commended him on being a family man in a recent post, to which Khune replied with a simple yet heartfelt, “Amen to that.”
As Khune continues to make headlines on and off the pitch, the love and support from his wife, Sphelele, remain a prominent and uplifting aspect of his personal journey.
