Afro-pop sensation and multi-award winner Ntando Bangani has been blessed with a baby boy.
His girlfriend, Mamoroka Manana, gave birth at a Krugersdorp private hospital yesterday through Caesarean section.
The dread-locked Afro-pop heartthrob earlier refuted reports that he had paid ilobolo and was getting married to Manana.
The Fort Beaufort-born artist told Sowetanonly last month that he was not married or dating anyone.
"The media is giving me wives and girlfriends. As far as I know, I am not married or getting married. I am very single ndilisoka. Ndinga- tshata njani ndimncinci kangaka? - how can I get married at this tender age?"
There were also reports that he was going out with Elle Tisane who plays Lebo in Muvhango.
But he later dumped her. She then hooked up with kwaito star Brickz.
The 27-year-old father shot to fame with his debut album, Kwantu, that went platinum. His next album, Imvelaphi, followed suit.
Efforts to speak to Bangani were unsuccessful yesterday.
