Pulane Lenkoe, a 31-year-old law student who is said to be dating Orlando Pirates midfielder, Thandani Ntshumayelo (24) became a celebrity last week following the leak of her nude photos, which she claims were leaked by her ex boyfriend. A number of celebrities (Trevor Noah, Cassper Nyovest and others) saw the photos and commented about them on social media. After that, people started searching and sharing them on Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp, resulting in the news of their leak spreading like wildfire and Pulane’s name trending for days.
Most people who saw the photos, especially males, complimented Pulane for her beauty, saying she is one of the sexiest women in the country. One Twitter user said she is sexier than all the Kardashians.
There are suspicions that Pulane leaked the photos herself to show off her curvaceous body. However, she told Times Live that this leak devastated her. She said she was literally shaking and hoping this would go away. Nonetheless, no one knows if she was really devastated or was just playing victim and enjoying the attention she was getting.
A number of fake Pulane accounts were created on Twitter immediately after Pulane’s nude photos were leaked. She made it known that all those accounts were fake and her real account was @pulane248. Her Twitter followers increased from 400 to about 40 000 in one week. At the time of this writing she was still getting about 1000 new followers a day.
On Sunday she thanked those who stood by her and said she wanted her life to go back to normal. “Jus wanna thank those who stood by me, your love and support is appreciated,” She Tweeted.
Her tweet reveals that she is annoyed by those who are speculating that her naked photos were leaked by herself. Also, it seems like those who were hoping to see more naked photos of her will be disappointed. In her tweet she said, “going back and forth about whether I leaked my own pic or not is not gonna make you a better person or make you relevant, all you need to do is hit the unfollow button cos you not getting nothing from me.”
