The last season of the show saw Nkanyiso Ace Khumalo and Ntombifuthi Tshabalala both walking away with whopping R2 million in cash. In 2016, the controversial couple was in the news for the wrong reasons, as they were charged with drug possession and they disappeared from the media spotlight. In 2016 they also welcomed their second child.
They celebrated their 10 year anniversary in 2020 and Ntombi took to her Instagram account to celebrate the milestone. “10 YEARS TOGETHER. I’M STILL HAPPY WITH YOU AND I LOVE U SO MUCH,” she shared.
A year before them, Mandla and Lexi bagged the 1 million rand winning prize on the show. They also had their own reality show Mandla and Lexi but they fell off the radar. The couple has two children and one of them recently celebrated his birthday. Mandla took to his Instagram account to pen a heartfelt birthday message to his son and it melted the hearts of many people.
“A lot of parents go through sleepless nights with newborns but you were and still are nothing but a happy kid our rainbow that came after many storms…
You and your brother make me want to be a better father Not just an ATM but holistic in my approach, a father who is as concerned with your financial well being asas he is about your mental state…
You have brought your mom and I closer in ways I never thought possible…just as you’ve also brought me closer to with my siblings and the rest of the family,” he said.
