Khosi Ngema was a model before her star turn in the hit South African Netflix series Blood & Water. The show as her first acting job and her only movie or TV credit on IMDb. The show was a massive success worldwide resulting in a second season renewal and thrusting Khosi into international fame. Now, her newly acquired fans want to know if she is dating a boyfriend, and we have got some current details.
The South African native is recently out of her teen years. She is 20-years-old and currently living in the Southern most nation of the African continent. Growing up, Khosi was not particularly exposed to the world of acting, but as she started her life in high school, the idea of performing and modeling started to take a hold. Her first foray into the new world came as a model but as almost everyone knows by now, her calling was somewhere else.
Being a first time performer is definitely hard, even considering the added pressure that a Netflix show can make or break a young actor's career. That was the position Khosi Ngema was in when she was hired as one of the leads of the second South African Netflix show. But she managed to wow the world in a six-episode run and now enjoys a worldwide following because of that performance. So, to quench the thirst of those fans all over the world, here is everything we know about Khosi Ngema's boyfriend and current relationship status.

Starting her acting career last year and making her debut as well as finding international fame, it has all happened in a hurried pace for the 20-year-old Khosi Ngema. She was a social media person back before her fame but only recently has she stepped up her interaction with the fans. So, in terms of finding past relationship, there is little information to go on.
We scoured the internet and found one person who was her boyfriend. A picture form 2018 showed Khosi with her boyfriend Jean-Luc Richard. The couple dated for over two years but it is uncertain if they are still together in 2021. The past Instagram posts featuring the two are all gone. They were head over heels about one another, but all the deleted posts are a little ominous.
In one of the, since deleted, posts, Khosi wrote, "Where do I begin… Sweetest Jean-Luc, in just two years, you have taught me what it means to love someone with your entire being. It’s overwhelming sometimes how you continuously make an effort to show me how much you love me. It’s crazy. You’re crazy🙈🥺. I’m so grateful for you, poopy. I’m so excited to see what’s in store for us in our Forever together🌕. I love you more and more each day…And issa lot of love 😅. K bye."
Are Khosi Ngema and Her Boyfriend Jean-Luc Richard Still Together in 2021?
Most of the posts on Khosi's Instagram are of sponsored content. Photos of her trying on various products are most of her recent posts. But with Blood & Water season 2 coming soon to Netflix, she was also seen promoting the show that made her famous. The actress was in a relationship with her boyfriend Jean-Luc Richard at the beginning of 2021, but her most recent deletion of posts has raised some questions.
The couple made their relationship official on 29 September 2017 and celebrated their 2 year anniversary (post now deleted) in 2019. The anniversary post had Jean-Luc in a laughing fit with him replying, "First of all I can’t believe you just called me poopy in front of all these people 😂😅 I love you boo, you’re my dream woman, fairytale princess, forever girl ❤️ also ew ur sappy."
More recently, however, all those posts are gone from her Instagram page. All the anniversary posts and loved up picture of the two are nowhere to be seen. This all has some fans worrying but it may not be break-glass-in-case-of-emergency-situation just yet. While all of the posts, expect one, are gone from her Instagram, Jean-Luc still has those photos on his grid.
Even more confusing is the fact that as recently as 16 weeks ago Khosi was writing "I’m obsessed with you😍🙂" on Jean-Luc's Instagram photos. We are not certain if Jean-Luc Richard is still Khosi Ngema's boyfriend, there are mixed signals all over the place. As recent as 29 May 2021 we were certain they were still dating, but Khosi's purge of all their photos from her grid has us doubting everything.
If they are not together, there are some relationship rumors floating around about the actress dating Enrico Hartzenberg. On 4 September 2021 Enrico made his first appearance on Khosi Ngema's Instagram. In collage of photos, the duo joined their heads and smiled for the picture on a sunny day. Then a few hours after the post was made public, Enrico appeared on the comment section and wrote, "You are so beautiful 😍." To which Khosi replied, "[Enrico Hartzenberg's Instagram] thanks my babe ❤️❤️."
Is that enough to prove that Enrico is Khosi's new boyfriend? No. But then he made another appearance on her profile, again in a collection of photos and videos. This time however a video showed Khosi working on Enrico's eyes, giving him a makeover. This got people talking and heightened the possibility of the rumors being true. But up to this point, it is just that, rumors, we are not sure if Jean-Luc Richard is still Khosi Ngema's boyfriend or she has moved on in 2021.
