It looks as if Maps Maponyane is officially off the market after one of his closest admirers proposed to him while he was driving. Being the gentleman that he is, he said yes!
Ever since he and Nomzamo Mbatha broke up a year ago (in fact it was this day last year that they tried to play down talk of a break-up and alleged cheating scandal), Maps has been riding solo.
Despite him taking out some much-needed alone time, he has still maintained his status as one of Mzansi’s most eligible bachelors and we have seen evidence of this on countless occasions.
This year alone he’s been linked to high profile celebrities including Boity (who swiftly denied the rumours but you know what they say about smoke and fire) but it looks like the one woman who stole his heart is actually not even in the entertainment industry.
While minding her own business on a casual afternoon, a young lady lady saw Maps weaving through the notorious Cape Town traffic and without so much of an introduction, she decided to shoot her shot!
While some people might have asked for his number or perhaps a date, she went for the jugular and proposed marriage. We know what you’re thinking, “It isn’t even a leap year!”
To our great surprise, the male model said “Yes” to the proposal but it didn’t end there. She went as far as tracking him down on social media and inboxing him to confirm their impending marriage. Maps, being the great sport that he is, played along and shared the news for everybody to know on social media:
Got proposed to this afternoon in CT traffic by a woman in her car shouting words of marriage and pointing at her ring finger… I said yes. I think it was the romance level that got me. 💍😊 pic.twitter.com/3F28wXKJrM

Some of Mzansi’s biggest celebrities joined in on the fun with Black Coffee confirming that he would DJ at their wedding:
I'm ready to play at this gig.

Other social media users took the opportunity to tag their celebrity crushes to show them how happy they could be if they weren’t “playing”:
But @HlomlaDandala and I are married – he doesn’t know it, but him and I have been married for a while now?!! Kids and all

After Minnie Dlamini’s tips on how to secure the ring last month, it looks like this young lady has taught us a thing or two about how to find and claim your husband.
In the meantime, what are we going to wear to Maps Maponyane’s wedding?
