11 Couples we love!
THISHIWE ZIQUBU & MANDISA NDUNA
Their posts on Instagram can melt any heart even on the coldest morning, especially when the couple decides to treat their followers to their usually goofy IG Stories. Although Thishiwe and Mandisa tend to keep a rather low profile, given their recent success appearing on some of the country’s highest-rated television hits, the actresses don’t mind putting their beautiful romance in the stratosphere.
ZAKES BANTWINI & NANDI MADIDA
People who know these things always say that it’s about meeting someone who compliments who you are, rather than complete you. Zakes Bantwini and Nandi Madida, whose premiere snaps of their adorbs son Shaka melted the internet last year, share more than just their love for music. The talented music couple, who’ve made lovely music together, also have a thing for fashion! The conversations must be so interesting, we imagine. But then again, so are the cute photoshoots they keep banging out for posteriority.
MINNIE DLAMINI JONES & QUINTON JONES
Minnie Dlamini and her Television Producer hubby, Quinton Jones, are now one of the hottest couples in the country. So much so that they were able to leverage public demand of their breathtaking wedding into a million rand deal for a three-part TV Special: Becoming Mrs Jones, which aired on Vuzu Amp in 2017. They started out as friends. Quinton used to buy Minnie lunch, her mother revealed on the show. The rest is history.
REASON & LOOTLOVE
Sometimes, celebrity couples sometimes leave the public guessing about whether or not they’ve hooked up for various reasons, including the fact that two major brands have just merged. Or like Minnie Dlamini said during the build-up to her Wedding TV Special; “I wanted to own my story.” While Reason and Lootlove also took their time, they’ve recently loosened up a little.
BLACK COFFE & ENHLE
Without a doubt, this is one of the country’s most formidable power couple. He’s crafted a massive career as one of the world’s biggest DJs, and she continues being a consistently celebrated actress and fashion designer. Their IG pages are proof that success is nothing without family.
SOMIZI & BAE
Somizi is one of the hardest working people in the industry. So it’s nice seeing him being able to wind down and get some good loving. For months, the multi-talented media personality shared abstract pictures of the new man in his life; many which were silhouettes, or toes, or back shots. Even that had to come to an end, and Somizi debuted beautiful pictures of his boyfriend at the recent Sun Met shindig, where the couple twinned their outfits.
According to Channel24, the 24-year-old’s name isMohale Tebogo Motaung. He’s a ‘matured’ Wits student.
