Actor Khaya Dladla will soon be walking down the aisle.
The former “Uzalo” star and Gagasi FM host got engaged over the weekend and shared the news about Instagram.
Khaya is seen speechless in a video of Khaya ‘s long-term boyfriend, Mercutio Buthelezi,’s unexpected proposal.
The proposal was made at the Ocean Reef Hotel in Zinkwazi, on the Dolphin Coast, north of Durban.
Khaya wore a purple suit and white heels while Mercutio wore a black suit.
Later, Khaya posted a photo saying, “So he proposed and I SAID YES.”
On social media, celebrity friends of the couple posted congratulatory messages.
“I can’t wait to host a party for you,” Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung said.
Ayanda Thabethe, a former “Top Billing” host, said: “So happy for you guys!” “Khaya also shared a sweet post on Instagram last week, showing off a bouquet of Mercutio roses, captioning the post:” It’s official …
We’re certainly no longer “Love Lives Here”. In us exists phela manje love ……… We are now “The Natural Habitat Loves.” Thank you for being my Shenge @mercutio buthelezi.
The news of Khaya ‘s engagement is a relief after the star’s fight earlier this year with Covid-19.
This is what Khaya wrote about the recovery process in July:
“I am living proof of overcoming Covid-19. A journey of introspection, new patterns, and (the) return of some old ones has been 14 days of solitude.
This journey was a psychological and emotional war. The day that people understand the mind’s strength, the better. You won’t breathe as soon as your subconscious tells your lungs that you can’t breathe … You will die as soon as your mind tells your body that you are dying.
