Hamisa Mobetto’s whirlwind romance: A timeline of her relationship with Kevin Sowax 

Tanzanian musician and model Hamisa Mobetto’s romance with Togolese businessman, Kevin Sowax, captured the public’s imagination. From the lavish gifts to the eventual split, their relationship played out like a riveting Netflix romance. Here we trace the timeline of their short-lived romance.

May 2023: The first meeting

Hamisa and Kevin first met at a private event in China. Unaware of Hamisa’s celebrity status, Kevin was instantly smitten. “As soon as I saw her, I was smitten,” he later recalled. Their chemistry was undeniable, setting the stage for a high-profile relationship that would soon attract media attention.

July 13, 2023: Public announcement

Hamisa took to social media to announce her re-entry into the dating scene, sharing photos alongside her new beau. The images, carefully curated to conceal Kevin’s identity, sparked widespread speculation. Online sleuths quickly pieced together the clues and revealed Kevin’s identity as a wealthy Togolese businessman.

The lavish gift: A Range Rover

Their relationship was marked by grand gestures, most notably when Kevin gave Hamisa a luxurious Range Rover. Hamisa’s public gratitude was effusive: “Thank you, darling… I want to cry. Thank you for showing me true love. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. This statement cemented their status as a power couple in the public eye.

September 2023: Meeting the family

Kevin’s visit to Tanzania in September was unusually private. Unlike previous trips, it lacked the usual fanfare, raising questions among fans. Despite the secrecy, it was during this visit that Kevin met Hamisa’s mother, signaling a deepening of their relationship.

When asked if he knew Hamisa was a megastar, Kevin said, “I did not know. I swear I didn’t know. It doesn’t change anything for me. It took me about four days to know that she was a superstar,” he said.

Early 2024: Rumours of trouble

Speculation of trouble in paradise began earlier this year when Kevin deleted all photos of Hamisa from his social media accounts. The move was interpreted as a sign of a possible break-up. Kevin’s subsequent posting of a new woman referred to as ‘Khadija Sowax’, added fuel to the rumours.

May 2024: The Confirmation

In an interview with Zamaradi TV, Hamisa confirmed the split. “I’m not in a relationship. I’m single,” she said, adding that their busy schedules and long distances were significant factors. Despite the split, Hamisa spoke warmly of Kevin, acknowledging his kindness and the positive impact he had on her life.

When asked what happened to her relationship with the West African man, she said: “Aah! That one? We broke up. The reason for the split was distance, he is always busy and so am I. But Kevin is a nice guy, I appreciate him and I always will”.

Despite the split, the former lover of Bongo star Diamond Platnumz praised the Togolese businessman, noting that she will always appreciate him.

“He is a very good person and I appreciate him and I will always do that. But it’s just that our paths had to diverge in one way or another. That’s it,” she said.

Post-Breakup: Reflections and Future Plans

Hamisa’s reflections on marriage and her aspirations provide an intimate insight into her romance. She has often spoken about the pressure to get married and her desire to focus on her business.

“I have never felt in a hurry to get married. It is all in God’s plan, in His time,” she said, emphasising her commitment to personal growth and financial stability.
