Mpumalanga's Zama Khumalo won the 16th instalment of Idols SA in December and that's not her only win recently. Zama is now officially in a relationship with fellow contestant Brandon Dhludhlu.
Brandon was eliminated from the singing competition after making it into the top three. Brandon confirmed the relationship to The Sowetan.
“We are dating and we started dating in theatre week before the show even started playing on TV. It’s been months now but people will think we only started to date now,” said Brandon.
Brandon also shed some light on how the competition affected their relationship. He said that it was scary to be competing against Zama because she is so talented and was his strongest competition.
"But I love her. So we spoke about the fact that it’s a competition and we are not going to let it get in the way of our relationship," said Brandon.
The couple has only been dating for six months but it seems as though things are serious as they have already met each other's parents.
Brandon described meeting Zama's parents as if it was the perfect moment. He said that his parents got along well with Zama's parents and it felt as though he was paying lobola, even if he wasn't.
