Below we have a list of Mzansi TV couples who dated in real life. When two people work together every day and portray intense chemistry, it’s expected that the chemistry can be natural. Our beloved Mzansi celebrities are not immune to this syndrome too.
Muvhango’s James and Meme
James, real name Dingaan Mokebe, and Meme, real name Tsholofelo Matshaba served us some serious power couple goals on the SABC soapie Muvhango. Their chemistry on-screen was undeniable, and the couple actually dated in real life for some time. However, they called it quits and have a daughter together from their time together.
Their breakup shocked Mzansi and made headlines. Dingaan accused his baby mama of not allowing him access to their daughter and called her an evil person and a kidnapper.
Clint Brink and Lorcia Cooper
Do you remember Backstage? Then you must remember Shawn and Charmaine. This couple dated and went on to get married on Backstage. However, that’s not the only time that they played on-screen lovers. They played the couple, Erin and Tino, on Scandal. We cannot deny that their chemistry on screen was palpable, and neither could they as they officially became a couple in real life in 2012. Their romance was not a happy ever after because they broke up but are now both married to other people.
Mitchelle Botes and Chris Beasley
We all remember the bad boy Len Cooper (Chris) from Isidingo and his storage romance with the hot Cherel de Villiers (Mitchelle). This TV couple actually dated in real life for a year before they called it quits due to personal differences.
Durban Gen’s Mbali and Lindelani
