“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 [just] started to date now.” 

The SA Idols winner; Zama Khumalo who hails from Mpumalanga is proudly dating fellow contestant; Brandon Dhludhlu who was eliminated from the singing competition after making it into the top three.



Dhludhlu shed some light on how the competition affected their relationship: “it was scary to be competing against Zama because she is so talented and she was my 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.”

The couple who have only been dating for six months have already met each other’s parents.
