Lebogang Brenda Motsumi Is Engaged!
Shaun Mihlali Mpalweni finally put a ring on it and Lebogang Brenda Motsumi is happily engaged! The HIV positive Zazi Ambassador is widely known from her Facebook post that trended last year where she set the record straight stating,“I Am NOT HIV, I Am LIVING With HIV!” and in case you missed what her bae had to say about being happily in love with his HIV Queen, read Lebogang Brenda Motsumi’s Man Talks Love.
When Lebogang shares how her knight in shinning armour popped the question on her birthday March 3, 2017, she blushes and says,”I still can’t believe it. I can’t get over the ring. I even asked my man if his sure that it’s an engagement ring because as far as I’m concerned it looks like a wedding ring to me.”
The young starry-eyed couple met back in high school but it was not a typical case of love-at-first-sight. (In case you missed it all, read Lebogang Brenda Motsumi Talks Love).
The soon-to-be Mrs Mpalweni recalled her special and unforgettable: “He popped the question on my birthday. I was not feeling well and originally wasn’t planning anything. He insisted and I was like,’Actually, I feel like having the yummy stew at Moyo’s in Melrose Arch’ and he was like,’perfect’. So we got there, I was feeling cold and they organised blankets for me. He was so on his phone half the time, nervous and edgy. I thought to myself,’why did he bring me here if he’s gonna be on the phone the whole time…like, what’s the point?’ He then mentioned to me that he got me a little something and it was a necklace from Sterns. I honestly wasn’t expecting much since we’re out already so I was very happy with my gift. Next thing I know the waiter comes and puts a small box on the table. So I’m like,” I’m sorry Sir but I think you made a mistake…” The waiter just stood there. The next thing I know Shaun is on one knee saying I’ve made him a better man and he wants me to be his wife. All sorts of emotions flooded me all at once. Off cause, I said, ‘YES’ and days later, I’m still in shock even though he kept telling me that he’s ready and he wants to pop the question.”
It’s pretty clear that against all odds that this young couple has faced, love always wins. We wish them everything of the very best on their journey ahead and we look forward to that wedding invite!
