Before this tweet, there were several others that said, in different wording by the pair to 'choose peace'. That left Black Twitter wondering where the sudden burst of 'motivational speaking' as they termed it, came from.
Myself and Bonang have decided to call it quits. I feel like I need to put this out there so we can both move on. I wish her all the best and I will always love her. ❤️
...choose joy... once you choose and place your attention on wanting to flow there, the universe will shift for you and inspire you to the action needed to take you there....
Life is really just about making a decision. Making a decision to be happy or to be sad.
....there is no right, and there is no wrong. Just different perspectives...
People can do things to you, hurt you, make you feel low or whatever but ultimately .... it's up to you how you deal with it and how you move forward. Nobody is responsible for your happiness, only you can make the choice of which path you think is best for you.
With this wave of words of wisdom, Black Twitter then took it upon themselves to ask the question we were all thinking:
People spend their time blaming other people for how they feel when in fact, you have a choice ... people make theirs ... will you be brave enough to make yours?
Why are you and your boyfriend being motivational, y’all scaring me 🤨🤨.... is yall engaged or what 👀
I need my suspicions confirmed because woah
Zimb' indaba madoda
And finally, when the 'official'announcement was made, the speculation of another publicity stunt began:

There were also some not-so-nice reactions to the news:

And what would a celeb break up be without Black Twitter sharing files? In 2013 Cassper Mufasa Nyovest tweeted that he'd love a chance with Queen B. Here's the evidence:
I'm sure Dj zinhle is going to have a happy new year now💃🎇🎇 pic.twitter.com/VVzdk6R3kF
And The CSI villager encouraged him to go for it:
Eish!! Bonang Matheba!!! What I would do!!! My word
