Maps Maponyane, the popular model and Top Billing presenter, has found love in the arms of former Miss South Africa, Shudufhadzo Musida.
Sparks flew, and the whispers of their budding romance have quickly spread like wildfire.
The couple made their public debut at the Durban July event in KwaZulu Natal over the weekend, leaving no doubt about their affection for each other.
SurgeZirc SA sources on Sunday got a first hand view of the two lovebirds on their FlySafair flight.
“These people are in love, they were all over each other like a bad rush. They tried to act normal but language was not allowing them.
They kept on touching and stroking each other’s hands, friends don’t behave like that unless there is more,” adds our source.
To the delight of onlookers, Maps Maponyane and Shudufhadzo even stepped out in matching denim jackets, a symbol of their unity and shared style.
Despite their attempts to maintain a low profile, their undeniable chemistry could not be concealed.
Another witness, who encountered them on a flight from Durban to Johannesburg, couldn’t help but comment on their undeniable compatibility. – “they make a cute couple I won’t lie,” says the source.
While both individuals have been linked to other partners in the past – Maps, famously known for his long-term relationship with actress Nomzamo Mbatha, and Shudufhadzo, rumored to have been involved with businessman Collen Mashawana – it appears that Maps and Shudufhadzo have managed to keep their budding romance under wraps until now.
When approached for comment, Shudufhadzo remained tight-lipped, neither confirming nor denying the rumors, while Maps seemed elusive – leaving us all intrigued and hungry for more details.
