Local actress Zola Nombona recently sent a birthday shout out to producer and actor Mandla Ngcongwane which raised a couple of eyebrows, speculating that the pair might actually be in a relationship.
Taking to her Instagram Zola shared a snap of Mandla which she captioned: “Happy birthday King. I genuinely have no words but I know you know how much I love and appreciate you.”
Well that sounds like a genuine birthday wish from perhaps one colleague to another but it was this part: “May the Lord keep filling your cup and may he grant you all your hearts desires. Love you” that might’ve led many fans to believe that the two could possibly be a couple.
“Ou thanks a mil babe. Well done u killed it yesterday. Hola” the former Ses’Top La actor responded to the post.
And well when Twitter FBI noticed the potential romance brewing between the two, they took it to the timeline, with one tweep asking if Mandla who has since split from his wife Tumi Masemola, “isn’t married?”

Speaking to DRUM, the multi-award-winning actress from Mthatha hinted at a beau in her life after deciding to make time for love in her busy schedule.
“I was too busy to fall in love until I allowed myself,” she said and although she’s been in a year-long relationship with her man who also happens to be in the showbiz she’s not yet ready to reveal his name.
“At least he understands the industry and we don’t have to fight about quality time and me having to sometimes kiss someone in a scene because he knows the industry.”
