Zakes and Nandi have been having a very hush-hush romamce, but Nandi Mngoma changed that when she took to her instagram and posted a lengthly message wishing Zakes a happy birthday while revealing of the important lessons he has taught her.

“For the time that I’ve known you, you’ve taught me that no one is perfect but that we can all strive to be a better person, strive for excellence, find confidence in being who we are, but more importantly you have taught me how to maintain humility not only in this industry but in life in general,” Nandi wrote.

“A true legend in music and performance, it’s been a great year for you and may God continue to bless you and may you keep reaching new heights”.
