Lobola Paid and Hearts United: Kini Shandu Married

“I realised that she’s the one who deserved to be my wife because our Shembe church leader, Inkosi Unyazi Shembe, told us about our wives in the Shembe church. Andile is part of the Shembe church and everything during the ceremony will be done according to Shembe church and Zulu culture as it will also be her umemulo on the someday,” he said.
Off the Market: Kini Looks Forward to Official Union
Expressing his joy about officially being off the market, Kini stated,
“Sunday, 24 December, will be a big day for me as I will do all I can to show the Khanyile family that I’m serious about their daughter. After that I will wait for them to indicate when they are ready to give me a date for the actual wedding. But in the meantime, they’re the ones who should take care of their daughter making sure she is not interrupted on her way to our marriage.”
Kini emphasized that he expects attendees to dress in traditional attire, particularly Zulu attire, for the ceremony on Sunday.
