FOR her 26th birthday, actress and TV presenter Boitumelo
“Boity” Thulo bought herself a mansion worth about R4 million, which grabbed
headlines and caused a social media spectacle. However, a few months down the
line, rumours have spread like wildfire that Boity’s house was repossessed and
is being auctioned.
The Potchefstroom-born actress hit back at all the reports,
describing them as “malicious and untrue”. Nonetheless, the media personality is
not fazed by all the noise. But something good has come out of it. She says
she’s learnt not to share too much. “I have learnt that not everyone is going
to be happy for you. There was so much negativity around me posting my
accomplishment on social media,” she says. All that experience has taught
Boity to keep many of her personal
details and accomplishments to herself.
When she posted about the house on social media, rumours of
a secret blesser quickly emerged. And gossipers were pointing to her
exboyfriend, rapper Cassper Nyovest. But the rapper denied being involved in
buying a house for his ex girlfriend. According to a report by a Sunday
newspaper, Boity’s house was apparently listed on the Private Property website.
The newspaper claimed that when they did a deed search, it did not reflect any
property registered in the name of the former Club808 presenter. However, they
could not get confirmation from the estate agent who sold the house to Boity
that the property was back on the market. Up until now, the actress hasn’t even
bothered to defend herself and the state of her property. Speaking to Move!,
Boity sets the record straight. “It’s such a malicious article. It’s not true,”
she sternly says.
