How did your love story begin?


Our Love begin in 2015 where by Mrs Colishia Smith who is our common friend played a Cupid and mix matched us, numbers where exchanged and we went on a blind date after a week of being introduced by our Cupid (Mrs Colishia Smith and the rest is history.

Tell us all about the proposal.


My husband never proposed lol, you see in our Culture its the lobola first. lobola means that he speaks to his parents informing them , that he met a girl and he wants to marry and the parents will arrange for his uncles to go and meet with the girls uncles to negotiate lobola (Marriage). so with my hubby he just came to me with a letter and said give this to your parents my uncles are coming to your parents house to ask for your hand in marriage, that was his proposal lol.
