Some of Mzansi’s biggest stars found love in 2017.

From quickie weddings, to surprising hook-ups, love was in the air in Celebville, and these stars caught the lovebug in a big way.

Here’s a look at some of the hottest celebrity hook-ups of 2017.

Khanya Mthethwa and Ntando Kunene

Idols SA winner Khaya Mthethwa is no stranger to dating beautiful women, and has been engaged to Nomzamo Mbatha and Jessica Nkosi.

But his fans were shocked when news broke last week that he was marrying former Miss South Africa Ntando Kunene after just three months of dating!

Zahara and Ian Sihle

One of the things on Zahara’s to-do list was to marry her fiancé Umhlobo Wenene radio DJ, Amaza Ntshanga. The couple was planning an August wedding, but three months into the new year the Loliwe hitmaker had a new man on her arm.

She reportedly started dating motivational speaker Ian Sihle Sibiya in March, and the singer has described their whirlwind romance as ‘the real deal’.

She could just start 2018 planning another wedding!

Liesl and Proverb

Former Miss South Africa Liesl Laurie and Idols SA presenter Proverb started dating in 2016, but they officially came out as a couple in 2017.

The couple are madly in love, and have been described as “bae” goals by their fans. Proverb can’t help gushing about his “queen” Liesl, and has taken to social media on several occasions to praise everything, from her smile to her work ethic.

Nádine and Derick Hougaard

Singer Nádine and rugby star Derick Hougaard tried to keep their new romance private, but made their relationship Instagram official in November.

“When you find yourself in a relationship where there is no exit sign. Then you know you have found the right one. And lever let her go,” Derick tweeted in June.

TV personality Abigail Visagie and athlete Akani Simbine started dating on the first day of the year.

“We have known each other for a while but only started dating on the first of January 2017. He asked me out as the clock struck 12 on New Year’s Eve, it was so, so sweet. We are happy and he is one of my biggest supporters. He is focused and ambitious and he treats me like a queen,” she told Drum magazine.
