SABC 3’s Top Billing episode on Saturday evening left viewer’s on envy mode after showing a feature whereby award-winning Songstress, Kelly Khumalo and rapper Chad da Don were interviewed regarding their sizzling relationship.
If one had tingles of doubts regarding the actual status and vibe of Kelly and Chad’s relationship, then that episode on Saturday was clear that these two are definitely couple goals.
The interview was handled by one of Top Billing’s finest presenter, Jonathan Boyton Lee. The first stop was at Chad’s pad when the couple explained that they met each on the set of Kelly’s music video and after looking into Kelly’s eyes, “that’s when the trouble started”, said Chad, jokingly.
These two kept referring to each other as “My Wife” or ‘My Husband”, this was another way of the couple to secure their places in each other’s lives. Well, they already have matching tattoos on their wedding fingers. Don’t they?
The interview then flowed to the beautiful and serene lodge called, Itaga Lodge which is situated at the Waterberg in Limpopo. This was a kind gesture from the General Manager of the lodge, Annelie Reynecke and team. (Basically, Chad and Kelly had the entire lodge to themselves!)
After enjoying themselves at the spa, another sit down interview took place, as Chad explained that it was definitely love at first sight hence they connected from the jump.
“When you meet that person, you need to be brave and give it your all and if it doesn’t work out, at least you’ll know that you gave it your best shot.” said Chad. Then Kelly lovingly mumbled:” You’re a very brave man.”
And then there was that heartwarming surprise that Chad had in place for his lovely partner, Kelly Khumalo. Then Kelly’s mother and two children, Christian and Thingo sneakily made their way in, of which mildly surprised Kelly but it remained clear how happy she was when these three came out to join them.
Proving just how committed he is to Kelly and her family, he whipped out a gift for them and said the following to Kelly’s son: “This is for my boy, Your dad loves you and I’ll protect you and be there for you through everything.” Of which little Christian replied confidently: “Everything you say, I say yes (to)”.
After being asked what made her fall in love with Chad, Kelly said the following: “I think he believes in the same things that I believe in. His love for family, God and life – just being the best that he possibly can be. So that’s what made me fall in love with him.”
And then of course…The Grand finale!
Chad sneaked up on Kelly as she was sitting by the fire, and got down on his knee and popped the million dollar question. Of which Kelly said yes to, but we couldn’t help but notice nuances of resistance emanating from Kelly’s end but she did seem happy.
Something did seem a tad odd, the ring that Chad bought as an engagement, looked exactly like the one that Kelly had on during the most parts of the interview. Maybe it was the sequence of the editing that had some of us confused.
Congratulations to Chad and Kelly on their engagement!
