So, Legit.ng decided to reach out to the super-tall man and find out all the details. Madiba Thabelo Glen, who hails from Thohoyandou, has been dating his bae, Mukwevho Pfunzo, since they met on May 3, 2018.
"It started on Facebook, I went straight to her inbox and told her I love her," Glen revealed.
After sliding into her inbox, the duo hit it off and they soon started dating. Glen revealed their height difference not only attracts attention online, people would stop to take pictures with them and ask them questions about their relationship.
We asked the tall man what was one of the struggles they faced and his answer warmed our hearts.
"We can't kiss when we are standing, so we always have to sit down," he said.
Glen often shows Pfunzo love on social media and he praised her for being a "loving and supportive" girlfriend.
They have been dating for a year and a month now and Glen revealed they celebrated their first anniversary with a quiet night at home.
"We bought some snacks and drinks and played some good music indoors," he said.
Apart from being one of the tallest men in South Africa, Glen has a romantic side as well. He revealed he would often carry Pfunzo's handbag for her and grab her hand in public.
