Autopopulate people field base on selection of a drop down item with datasource in SharePoint list

I need some urgent help here please. Quite new to PowerApps but a pro with InfoPath. I have a SharePoint list with Choice field and People field. I already have items on the list, where if Choice field = 'A', then people field is populated with user related to the choice field on the SharePoint list.


When I use this as a datasource in PowerApps, it returns the People field as a drop down. Not sure why.


However, my main task here is to allow users to select an item from the Drop down choice field. But I then want the People field to autopopulate base on the selected choice item in SharePoint list. This can usually be achieved in InfoPath by setting a condition and action rule. 


How can I achieve this please in PowerApps?
