Sibusiso knew he had found true love when he met the beautiful and humble Thandeka way back in 2002.

He had heard a lot of good things about her from fellow villagers and wanted to meet her.  As fate would have it, Thandeka passed by the soccer pitch where he was practicing one day. He tried to impress her with his soccer skills, but unfortunately, she wasn’t quite impressed at that time. 

When he finally met her, it was more of a casual conversation, no pressure. This continued for a while and they became friends. It so happened that Thandeka had to move to another village to live with relatives, causing a rift among the two friends.

Sibusiso tracked her down and they bumped onto each other one day while Thandeka was returning back home from the shops. There was a lot of catching up and unfortunately, Thandeka had to once again move to live with another relative. Sibusiso tracked her down again.    

They finally started dating in 2009 and Thandeka says one of their happiest moments was the birth of their first child. Being on the show means a lot to the couple, as it’s the first for their village.
