Media personality Pombili Shilongo has been making great strides in her career and we love to see it. The brand influencer has been scoring major campaigns recently, making sure she secures that bag.
Although Pombili is in the limelight, she manages to keep her love life private but recently responded to the rumour that she is Leather Mein’s bae. The two have sparked romance rumours before, as they are constantly spotted together.
In an interview with Weekly Wrap’s host Riaza Kweyo, she set the record straight and put the rumour to rest. Homegirl stated that they are not a couple and this was not the first time she heard of the rumours.
“That is not the first time I have encountered that question. Coming here, I anticipated that question, but I’m extremely private. Definitely not. I have met Leather Mein’s girlfriend. I’m well acquainted with her and him,” she said.
She said she has worked with the musician before on rebranding his career, and because they have often been seen together, people assume they are dating.
“I think that is why my career is flourishing because I’m not seeing anybody at the moment and at least for the past year. I’m not looking into anything; don’t flood my DMs,” she added.
Shilongo also debunked rumours that she is going back to NBC, stating: “Not any time soon; at least it will always be home. I absolutely love that place. I have learned a lot and I think I would not be myself if it wasn’t the broadcaster that played a tremendous role in my life.”
Pombili has been in the industry for 10 years now and has been mentoring young people who want to make it in the industry.
“Ten years of being in this industry – years of networking, learning and growing – what a blessing. 2021 will be a year of giving back and empowering our community. Young women and men, get excited. I can’t wait to share the exciting news... Stay woke.”
This year, she launched a mentorship through which she is hosting masterclasses for influencing. She has also teamed up with the United Nations Population Fund in Namibia, and the Namibia Planned Parenthood Association in a campaign to help curb the spread of abuse against women and children by ensuring life-saving assistance to women, girls and persons living with disabilities who suffer gender-based violence.
