Earlier this month, we invited YOU, the ZAlebs reader to vote in the first ever ZAlebs awards and now that voting is closed, we’re revealing which ZAlebs came out tops in each category according to you.
While the year 2016 gained notoriety for being one of the worst years in existence, 2017 had enough ups and downs to keep everyone happy. One of these ups came from watching our favourite celebrity couples living their best lives.
Maps and Nomzamo (aka the buddies)
Buddy one and buddy two spent the better part of their relationship alluding to the fact they they are just friends but now that they are more open about their relationship, we just love to see them fanning out over each other and their accomplishments.
We’ve always wondered what it’s like for two super hot people to be in a relationship. And thanks to these two, we know they don’t just sit there staring at each other on some “yazi umuhle"
Dash and Ayanda (aka DNA)
DNA are another set of extra beautiful people who just couldn’t stay away from each other. We must admit however that every time they are captured together, it is literally picture perfect.
And you can just tell how smitten they still are with each other. It’s the cutest thing ever.
P.S.: no one rocks tropical holidays quite like these two.
Bonang and AKA (the King and Queen)
Despite the rocky start to their relationship, Bonang Matheba and Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes have quickly become one of the country’s favourite couples.
And like Kanye and Kim, a retrospective listen to AKA’s music proves DJ Zinhle’s initial assertion that he has always been a fan of Matheba.
Connie and Shona (aka Aunty Connie and Uncle Sho)
The pair celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago and they stay redefining #goals for South African romantics across the nation.
According to you however, South Africa’s couple of the year for 2017 is...
