So he proposed and I SAID YES

A post shared by Khaya Dladla (@khaya_dladla) on

With a caption that read, "Our moment has finally arrived and his officially mine," Mercutio expressed how happy he was that Khaya said, "Yes".

Three years ago, Khaya called bullsh*t on the unspoken rule that friends' former lovers were "out of bounds", claiming it shows how selfish human beings can be. 

The Uzalo actor told TshisaLIVE he often discussed the role of Sis Dolly with his friends and they always debated about whether it was OK for someone to date their friend's ex. Khaya said for him, it was a no brainer.

"I have this particular stance on a matter that always brings heated debate at my house, and even on the show. The issue of dating a friend's ex, people always make it too deep. It really isn't and it reminds me of just how selfish human beings can be.

"I mean, if you don't want this partner of yours, why shouldn't the other people have him or her? What if my happiness is in my best friend's ex? Maybe I am meant to meet my future husband through my friend."
