Julius Malema has praised Somizi Mhlongo’s traditional wedding, referring to it as a “spectacular celebration.”
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader and his wife Mantwa Matlala-Malema attended the wedding on Saturday.
On Sunday evening, Malema, popularly dubbed Juju, shared snaps of the event on Twitter.
One of the photos showed him and Mantwa posing with the wedding couple, Somizi and his brand new husbae Mohale Motaung.
Malema looked dapper in a dark and gold-trimmed traditional outfit, as did Mantwa, who donned a resplendent red, off-the-shoulder dress.
In another pic, the Malemas posed with socialite and entertainer Khanyi Mbau and her bae Tebogo Lerole.
Juju and Mantwa also posed with star athlete Caster Semenya and her wife Violet Raseboya.
Somizi’s star-studded wedding
The Malemas were among dozens of celebrity A-listers who graced what is surely the traditional wedding of the year.
Other stars who attended include actress Pearl Thusi, radio presenter Thando Thabethe, and rapper Cassper Nyovest.
Both Somizi and Mohale shared breathtaking snaps of their big day on Instagram on Sunday.
It was a beautiful display of how South African cultures can blend, as Somizi, who is Zulu, emerged from Mohale’s parents’ home dressed in Sotho attire.
The couple went through multiple eye-catching outfits during the course of their wedding.
At one point, they looked regal in Egyptian-inspired outfits.
Mohale shared a pic of this stunning combo and simply captioned it, “A king and his king.”
Aren’t we all breathless folks? Love is indeed beautiful. We can’t wait for the couple’s white wedding. January come forth quick!
