So what happened to Jafta


I am going to hand it to Jafta. This guy keeps his private life in a super impenetrable vault.

There were rumours in 2011 that he was dating his fellow Generations actress Samkelo Ndlovu. However nothing was ever confirmed and it stays just a rumour.

There is literally no news about him. So I followed him Twitter. He has 9.8K tweets. However tweets stop in Jan 2016.

On Instagram I found out that he has a tattoo fund jar. I would like to report that he got his tattoo.

I also found out that he likes reading graphic novels. Those that don’t know what graphic novels are. It is basically amapopayi for grownups.

He is also into fashion designing. I read reports that he interned for David Tlale. So when he isn’t busy on a television of film set he is designing clothes.

As mentioned earlier on there is a film Kalushi that he was involved in that came out this year. Jafta is still young and looks even younger. So we can be sure that there is more to come from him.
