At 2020 New Year’s party, South Africa based Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan aka Tlale, finally unmasked her husband King Bae to the public for the first time.

Zari who was the host at Dreams Night Life in the Zimbabwean capital Harare, shared a video of herself “whispering King Bae” and having great time.  

To the shock of many, King Bae is Cedric Anthony Fourie, a South African actor.

A muscular handsome man most likely younger than Zari, Cedri married the socialite in a private wedding on July 18, 2019 which also happens to be the Mandela Day in South Africa.

Gay claims

The moment the picture started making rounds on social media, stories about a gay Cedric too emerged.

A South African website “Briefly”, says Cedric is an actor famous for his incredible Skeem Saam Soapie drama casting in which he took part as Lehasa Maphosa – a wealthy businessman who unknowingly sparks Sonti’s heart.

Early in his career, Cedric served as a networking engineer but later gave up for his lifelong passion in the film industry.

Nicknamed Lehasa Maphosa by his fans, Cedric and Lasizwe are two iconic personalities who have lit South African’s social sphere with speculations on their unconfirmed romantic relationship.

Their suggestive photos and videos have split their fans with some showing support as others express their disapproval through homophobic comments.

Some fans are however reluctant to jump into conclusion concerning the alleged relationship between the two until Cedric and Lasizwe decide to come out.

So far, none of the two has declined the relationship, not even Cedric Fourie partner Lasizwe.

The actor pronounced his supportive stand on LGBTIQ+ citing rampant homophobia which requires more awareness.

In a live video, Lasizwe referred to himself as “Cedric Fourie boyfriend”.
