    Don’t believe in love at first sight? Clearly you haven’t read Nandi Madida and Zakes Bantwini’s story.

    The only way to find out if someone believes in love at first sight or not, is to ask them about Nandi Madida and Zakes Bantwini’s first encounter. The pair are relationship goals to many out there, however, one would be surprised to learn that they fell in love the moment they laid their eyes on each other.

    “She is amazing and we just connected from the moment we met. I know that she wanted to work with me even before we had met. I got a call from (Nandi’s record label) Universal Music asking if I would work with her but at the time they could not afford me. But it was at the SAMA nominations party (that we met) that I realised she was my wife.

    “When she said that she loved my music I told her: ‘I love you’. I kind of overwhelmed her. It was love at first sight‚ for me. I told her that I was waiting for her to be ready but I wanted to just do it‚” Zakes said.

    Once they had started dating the pair refused to talk about their romance‚ claiming that they were no different to any other couple in the world and didn’t want to “make a career out of the relationship“.

    “It hasn’t been easy because as a public figure people want to know what is going on with you. Some celebs give in and people think that we are all the same and will talk‚ but we didn’t want that. Suddenly you become Zakes Bantwini‚ Nandi’s husband and the line become blurred‚” he said.

    But the couple could only keep their romance a secret for so long. When Nandi fell pregnant and started showing‚ the couple decided to announce the pregnancy at a fashion week showing of Nandi’s clothing line.

    “I was so nervous watching Nandi go on stage. I knew that everything would change once people saw her baby bump and we were expecting the whole thing to blow up‚” he added.

    They released a statement shortly after officially announcing the news and then pulled the blinds back down on their relationship until the birth of their son Shaka late last year.

    “I have no regrets about the way we have handled our romance so far. I am happier than I have ever been and I’m able to spend time with my son and wife without the pressure to reveal everything to the public. I love everything about my wife and she is perfect to me‚” Zakes added.

    So there you have it, keep your eyes open at all times… who know, maybe you might just find your soulmate!
