TV personality Maria Nepembe and her rumoured bae KP Illest know how to melt our hearts.
The duo recently collaborated on a song, titled ‘Highway’ – and we are here for the music video.
The visuals look sizzling, and it is beautiful to see our local musicians pulling out all the stops when working on their music video shoots to deliver great content.
The video features eye-catching visuals of the two portraying love interests.
So, you can imagine our excitement when they released the visuals.
We watched the video – and it is exactly what we thought it would be – pure fire! We are not the only ones who think the video is amazing. As soon as it dropped, fans took to her Instagram page to compliment their work.
Taking to his Instagram page, KP Illest thanked everyone who helped to work on it, including Maria.
“Thank you to everyone who helped out it together, and a special shout out to @marianepembe for being willing to step out of her comfort zone and try something new.”
Maria's love life is always a topic of discussion in the country.
Although she manages to keep it under wraps, fans have been suspecting she and the award-winning musician are an item.
Ever since KP Illest's music video ‘Jealousy’got released, they have been spotted together quite often – and they often gush about each other on social media.
Recently, on KP Illest's birthday, Maria sent a birthday shout-out to him on her Instagram page, saying: “Happy birthday, best friend!!! For being the best to ever do it. I celebrate you today and every other day. Thank you for all you do and all that you are. We are blessed to have you. I love you Kapaka”.
In a smash or pass game recently, this is what Maria had to say about KP: “I think KP would probably be the only person I would smash in real life on this list; he's hot, he has a very good heart, he would make a great husband and father, and he is the kind of dudes I'm into”.
However, KP Illest told weekly newspaper Confidénte that they are not dating.
“She is my best friend. We are really just good friends. I don’t know too much about any rumour; I haven’t even heard anything yet; this is news to me,” he said.
