Cape Town - Nyan’ Nyan’ presenter Luyanda Potwana deals with people’s troubled relationships every week on his TV show but has been mum about the lady in his own life.

The Eastern Cape-born presenter has not even posted a picture of his newfound love Nomnotho Zondo on social media – keeping everyone in the dark.

Luyanda revealed to Move! that he recently got hitched and has already paid lobola just four months into the relationship.

The couple recently had the Umembeso ceremony in KZN before the queen of his heart flew back to London.

Luyanda lives in South Africa and his wife lives in London.

"We met last year [2019] in March at London’s airport," he reveals.

Luyanda was waiting for his flight when he heard her on the phone speaking isiZulu. He couldn’t help but introduce himself to someone from back home.

The pair had coffee and kept in touch. Luyanda fell so hard for her that he didn’t want to waste time and put a ring on it.

"In July I sent my uncles to her family to ask for her hand in marriage and pay lobolo. I did everything that was supposed to be done and just last week we were doing Umembeso in KZN," he says.

When we asked if he doesn’t feel like he’s rushing things he said: "When you know, you know. You don’t have to waste time," he matter-of-factly says.

He says before they walk down the aisle, they will wait for about two years. "We need to plan it well and we want the people we will invite to be prepared as well," he explains.

Another thing the Luyanda can be proud of is being the face of one of the most watched shows on TV. He beams with pride that he is a part of Nyan’ Nyan and has played a part in making it the success that it has come to be.

"It exciting because it shows that people watch and they love it," he says.

He says he’s been so busy with the show that he’s not had time to do anything else as it is time consuming traveling from coast to coast every week.

"I’ve just decided to focus on the show," explains.
