Idols SA's Zama and Brandon dodge dating rumours and won't comment on personal life

Speaking to Channel24, Brandon said he would not be answering any query about his personal life. "I will answer questions except questions about my personal life," he said. 

Zama did not respond to Channel24's request for comment at the time of publishing. 


Idols SA season 16 winner Zama Khumalo and finalist Brandon Dhludhlu are dating.

Rumours of a romance started circulating in December, but both declined to comment on their relationship status. 

Now, the cat is finally out of the bag! 

According to Sowetan Live, the couple sparked a romantic connection during Idols SA Theatre Week in June 2019 and have been dating for six months.

"It was so scary to be in the competition with her because I was so scared of her because she was one of the strongest contestants in season 16. 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," he said. 

Sowetan Live reports that the couple celebrated the new year in Brandon's hometown, Barberton, in Mpumalanga and that their parents got on "like a house on fire".
