After almost a year-long relationship, Khanya issued an ultimatum to Nkateko.

She was paired with Isaac, while her partner, Nkateko, was paired with Sizakele. When Nkateko connected with Sizakele and shared a bond, jealousy overtook Khanya, and there were many heated arguments.

Even after Nkateko offered a promise ring, the couple's relationship didn’t improve. Khanya and Nkateko’s relationship ended and they are no longer together. However, they had a baby boy in January 2024, before the show premiered.


Thabi and Genesis

After a seven-year-long relationship, Thabi issued an ultimatum because Genesis was not ready to move forward.

In The Ultimatum: South Africa, Thabi was paired with Lindile for a trial marriage, while Genesis was paired with Courtney. Seeing Thabi with her partner made Genesis jealous, and he ultimately proposed to her.

She accepted the ring, however, Thabi was seen without her ring in her recent social media posts, with a suspicious caption:

“Marry me or move on?”

Lebo and Nolla

Lebo and Nolla have been together for one and a half years, but because of Nollla’s flirty nature, Lebo issued an ultimatum. It eventually turned out to be true during The Ultimatum: South Africa.

After Nolla was paired with Ruth for a trial marriage, upon his request, he developed severe intimacy with her. On top of that, he was lying to Lebo and everyone else. After the major drama and severe confrontations, Nolla and Lebo left the show, midway.

They said that they were together, but during the reunion episode, Lebo shared that she no longer wanted to be with Nolla. Even Nolla was shocked to learn this shocking revelation from Lebo. So, they’re no longer together, for sure.


Ruth and Isaac

They dated for six months and Lindile presented Siza with an ultimatum. She was not ready for the commitment. After the show ended, their relationship had many ups and downs. However, they shocked everyone when Lindile shared his feelings and poured his heart out:

"The reason why I choose you is because I can grow with you. The reason why I choose you is you're my best friend. I can be myself, I can laugh and do all the weird stuff around you. And lastly the reason why I choose you is because I love you."

Siza accepted this proposal, and they got engaged. The couple is happily together.


Courtney and Aiden
