These two are one of the most adorable couples in Mzansi and we are crushing hard on them. Apart from some cute hints, they have managed to keep their relationship private and have us green with envy of how fabulous they look together.
They took us all by surprise last year when Bontle posted a picture of her beau, Priddy Ugly, in one knee proposing to her with the caption ‘matrimony’, which later turned out to be for a music video of the song, I Do by LaSauce.
The couple recently celebrated their anniversary and are going on nine years together, with Bontle writing on her Instagram, ”Est. 2009 || 2 months ago, we completely forgot about our 8 year anniversary ?. Oh well , excuse us, we tend to lose track of forever… 2018 || The Year of 9.”

More than genuinely loving the song, we loved being the representation of what it advocates – a young, black love that have the intention of solidifying their lifetime commitment to each other, represented here as marriage. We understood the implications of deciding on how to best go about making the greatest impact in encouraging a conversation of love, something that doesn’t make the headlines, and so we were bold in our approach.
Everything that we posted were all images leading up to the video, we just hadn’t announced that yet. Those who know us personally, who were all notified and prepared prior to the video dropping, know that we are not the type of folk to let out the details of our personal lives like that. People know of us being together but do not know anything beyond that, particularly the state of our relationship. That privacy remains true for our engagement and marriage which will remain our private matter. Those who need to know, will know.
Apologies to those who feel disappointed right now but we hope you find solace in us being together and happy. Major love to those who laughed it off and found it brilliant. Thank you to those who give continued support. Reaction and interpretation is open to anything. Everyone is open to decide how they feel about it. We, however, are happy and proud of it. It’s huge. It’s beautiful. It’s really all love. ✊❤ Watch @lasaucesa ft @amandablacksa – 'I Do' here: https://youtu.be/ISNm4knGl-k 🙏
