 Sphelele Makhunga Biography

Sphelele Makhunga is a South African entrepreneur and social media influencer who rose to fame following her marriage to celebrated goalie Itumeleng Khune.

The Durban native attended Kloof High School, where she reportedly stood out as a student. She recently graduated from the IIE’s Varsity College in Sandton, South Africa, an institution she is more than happy to identify with.

Sphelele has been around for long, as evident in her Instagram page, but it wasn’t until she started dating her now-husband that she leapt into the consciousness of many South Africans. This association has also boosted her brand. It has also earned her more influencing gigs.


The social media was born in 1997, which means she is currently 26 years old. The age disparity between her and her husband has often been a subject of conversation among netizens. But she isn’t it is not much of an issue for her, as she wanted to get married early and did.

Net Worth

Sphelele is too focused on her brands to be bothered with conversations of net worth – and that is despite her flaunting her blessings with her social media followers now and then. While she has been silent about her net worth, the public has been doing the talking, with conservative estimates pinning to about R2 million.


One thing about being a celebrity or spouse to a celebrity is that eyes are always on you. People are observing to know everything about you, from the clothes you wear to the perfume and shoes, down to where you live and the cars you own. Well, Sphelele isn’t doing badly as a celebrity wife. While it is unclear exactly how many cars she owns, especially as her husband’s cars are often seen as her as well, she’s been spotted with the Mercedes Benz V-Class.


Who are Sphelele Makhunga’s parents? This is one question that has been flying around for as long as one can remember. Interestingly, although she is married to a famous figure in South African sports, this aspect of her life is not exactly public knowledge.

Anyway, she is said to have a close relationship with her parents, who groomed her into the woman she is today.


Sphelele Makhunga is married to no other than Itumeleng Khune, one of South Afria’s notable goalkeepers. When the couple started dating, Sphelele wasn’t particularly famous. She only snagged the attention of most people when she got into a relationship with Itu.

The two dated briefly and got married in November 2019. Itu Khune had had his fair share of women before selling for Sphelele. He had most famously dated Minnie Dlamini. It is even claimed that he had paid her lobola but the two of them did not eventually get married. Minnie went on to marry someone else.


A person with many kids is often described as blessed. Sphelele might not have many kids at this point, but she happily counts herself in the league of the blessed. She’s a mother of two. When she had her first child, she had spoken about having two kids more.

Only one of her dreams has been fulfilled though. At the moment, she has just two kids, Lesedi Ziyanda and Amo Zenande.


While Sphelele Makhunga is a famous public figure and married to a famous man, not much is known about her siblings and what they do – that is assuming she has one.
