Bouga Luv takes a walk on the wild side

Has the drug addict-turned-pastor kwaito star Kabelo Mabalane suffered a relapse?

Or did the fumes of the booze on the bar counter Kabelo aka Bouga Luv was leaning against at the Channel O marquee at the Mary J Blige concert go to his head?

Maybe the effects of groping the beautiful girl, known only as Boitumelo, turned his mind after affectionately spanking her butt in public.

Mabalane confirmed that the pretty lass was his girlfriend, but would reveal nothing else including her last name.

Mabalane's impromptu sideshow raised many an eyebrow because he is known for preaching about his love for Jesus at every opportunity, regardless of the occasion.

That prompted the question whether Boitumelo was going to be ma-moruti?

Bouga Luv calmly responded: "I am still playing for now. I don't know. Do I have to marry every woman I date?"

Nevertheless, he said he was madly in love with Boitumelo and demonstrated his affection by kissing her on the forehead.

Before getting involved with Boitumelo, the pastor was involved in a highly-publicised relationship with supermodel Noni Gasa. Their break-up adorned gossip pages around the country.

Kabelo, who studied at Rhema Bible School for three years and has just launched Faith Records with D Rex, is credited with giving spiritual guidance to artists such as the avowedly gay Somizi Mhlongo, who declared he was born again after meeting Bouga Luv.
