Mihlali Ndamase: Dating Rumours
Mihlali Ndamase has never made any relationships official, nor has she hinted at any man in her life. However, she has been linked to many people – which is nothing new. In 2019, she was spotted at the Singapore Grand Prix. Apparently, she was there to solely cheer on Lewis Hamilton, a British racer. She witnessed the British champion do one of his worst finishes, and hence took to Instagram to story a picture of them together with the words: “You did the best you could, babe. Super proud of you. A winner in my eyes.”
This obviously led fans to speculate whether the two were in a romantic relationship. They even trended them on Twitter. Hilariously, Mihlali refuted the rumors and told her fans to stay hydrated and mind their own business.
