A local man has got social media buzzing after shockingly revealing that he's dating his cousin. The flamboyant Twitter user even shared a few very interesting exclusive comments with Briefly News.
Heading online, @DlalaChampion shared the controversial news.
"She's My Cousin But We Decided to break the rules and become lovers," he captioned the saucy post.
Speaking exclusively with Briefly News, the young man was asked whether or not the tweet was fake and just posted for clout and had this message to share:
"Others are just jealous cause in their culture it's a so called "taboo"
The lover boy also went on to reveal that he had developed feelings for his cousin from the age of 18 and hasn't had any regrets about their choice to make it official.
Mzansi social media users had mixed reactions to the post. While some condemned the couple for messing with the well-being of their possible future children, others suggested that marrying one's cousin was a very African thing.
Check out some of the comments below:
"Having kids with your first cousin (uncles kid) is very dangerous, it doubles the chances of the child being disabled."
@luluvuyelele is lies... I've seen many cousins have kids even some married but children are totally fine..."
"In our culture which is Xhosa it is a taboo to be in a relationship with your cousin or as cousins , but I know that Pedi people are allowed to marry as cousins."
"Both of you just brought bad luck into your family.... what you’re doing is a taboo in future your ancestors will deal with you."
"There are cultures that allow and embrace this."
"Aowa, lots of elders in my family married within the family. We are all OK. After all, it kinda helps that one does not bring sh**ty families into the family. Thole you brought family ya batho ba go loyana, nou u must deal with such."
"There's no such, taboo according to who? Life is abt happiness and being with the people u love dearly."
"Cousins should be cancelled as family members, these people are our types yho."
"How does it work though you all grow up together as just cousins then jiki jiki lanyobana!!"

In some other relationship news, Briefly News previously reported that a local woman has headed online to express her absolute devastation after being completely ignored by her partner. The troubled young woman sent a lengthy text which was ultimately brushed off by the man she loves.
Heading online, @awholesomehunnn shared the heartbreaking news:
"I sent a whole paragraph about how I've been feeling and he's acting like he didn't see it??? Yoh ha ah," she captioned the post along with many teary faced emojis.
Mzansi social media users could definitely relate and headed to the comments section to share their own similar experiences. While some suggested the young woman stop overthinking the situation, others suggested she move on as clearly she was not a priority in his life.

"Yhuu. I am soo tired nami. It's painful because we even have a baby together, staying together forever with the baby mama was my dream, but now seems impossible."
"Relax you are panicking. I know this feeling, you must be an overthinker... right?"
"Remember when I'd write my ex-fiance a whole paragraph... he will update a status with the caption,"We are busy, be busy too, personally, I don't have time to read a long text like a Bible verse, I just delete the sh*t, have no time for nonsense," that time I'm pregnant. Sia it's over M."
"He's either having sex, about to have sex, just had sex or thinking about having sex. So moral of the story, never send a text expressing your emotions to a man, you always do it in person."
"My GF told me she doesn't wanna be loved or love for that matter and broke up with me for a stupid reason. Two weeks later she posts a new guy."

"You mean even if the paragraph was from his crush he still wouldn't read it? I don't think so... The problem is that we are with people who aren't ours who are still trying to find "their" people."
