Johannesburg - They may be shy to talk about their apparent love affair, but that hasn't stopped Maps from paying tribute to his "soulmate" Nomzamo Mbatha.
In the film, they play a pair of lovers who fall madly in love and rumour has it the pair have taken their on-screen romance off-air and are dating. He's even hinted at being in love! (check it out HERE).
That's why when Nomzamo celebrated her birthday this week, Maps had to think of just the right wish to send. One that would tell her how he felt about her without giving too much away. The result is an essay addressed to his "soulmate".
"I believe that in our lives we encounter not just one but a number of soulmates and they can present themselves in the form of a friend, a lover, a family member, a mentor or a guide that somehow adds a great deal of value to one's life...you're at least one of those and that is an honour Buddy," Maps wrote to Nomzamo.
"It's been a real privilege making memories with you. I can't wait for them to see you on the big screen and how brilliant you are at what you do," he added, before expressing his wish that he could share the next 25 years with her.
And why wouldn't he when Nomzamo keeps shining like this...
