How We Met

Our Love Story

After meeting for the first time, hanging out, and practically moving in together all in one breath… LMAO!!! Three months into our relationship, Matt informed his family that he intended on marrying me. His family wrote a letter to my family requesting to meet on 25 August 2012 to discuss Lobola and they travelled 15 hours from Nelspruit to Matatiele on 24thAugust 2012 to meet my family the next day. (The distance was traumatic for Matts family, so anyone going to Matatiele for the first time in October must brace themselves).

About three years after the Lobola proceedings, 23 December 2015 to be exact. We were driving to a friend’s wedding in Matatiele. While on this long journey, he suddenly stopped the car when we were passing the most beautiful mountain views of Bulwer in KZN. He wanted us to get out the car to enjoy the view, and while we were sitting outside the car chatting, all of a sudden he went down on one knee and held out a ring that was perfectly dramatic and full of character like me. He formally popped the question. Apparently that was quite a nerve-wrecking experience for him…. And of course I said YES!!!!

We have been a formidable team for the past 7 years and have been blessed with two beautiful children, Khanyisile and Ubuhlebendalo.

As Entrepreneurs we have remained focused and devoted to each other and our journey, even during the toughest times. We are Besties, lovers, partners in yonke’into, each other’s biggest cheerleaders, each other’s pillars of strength when the other needs support. We are such an imperfect couple, but perfect for each other!!! We don’t hurt other’s, we are not fake, we do not gossip about others nor talk down on others in an effort to elevate ourselves. We mind our own business and just live a simple comfortable life created for us, by us unapologetically.

We are simply present in our relationship and have immense respect for each other and the family that we are building. Our vision is aligned and we are building an empire that will empower many and inspire our children to take pride in who their parents are and the legacy we will leave behind. This union is a very exciting time for us and a chapter we are greatly looking forward too.
