A Valentines surprise

The spirit of love was flying across many parts of the world on Monday. The 26-year-old Bucs playmaker felt that it was a splendid opportunity to display his devotion to his partner Gugu Bikani, who is famously known as Soulful G.

Meet the fiance

Zungu's fiancé is a recording artist and songwriter, who is known for her work on the popular Amapiano hit single Uthando featuring Soa Mattrix. The music video of the track has gained more than 3 million views on YouTube.

The couple has quite big names in their own right and their union will sure draw more attention in the future. 

The proposal

Zungu took a knee in the middle of the kitchen in an intimate set-up where there were a couple of friends who were there to witness the big moment. His partner seemed super overjoyed to receive the question and she responded with a resounding yes - which was good news to the former Stellenbosch FC baller.

Did you know?

Nicknamed Manando, Zungu is from Parkgate, KwaZulu-Natal and he began playing football as a young teenager at school. He grew up idolising former Kaizer Chiefs maestro Emmanuel “Scara” Ngobese, according to Pirates' official website.

Your thoughts, please?

Having made just two appearances across all competitions this season, do you think Zungu deserves more game time?
