The wedding bells might be ringing soon for 45-year old South African gay media personality, Somizi, as he recently got engaged to his 24-year old bae Mohale Motaung.
Spilling details of their engagement, Somizi said the proposal was done while they were both in Paris. Confirming the news on Metro FM this week, Somizi said he popped the question on the ‘love lock’ bridge with the Eiffel Tower in the background. The gay media personality also shared a video of him proposing to ‘bae’ on IG captioning the video; ”It’s a Big YESSSSS. it’s a golden ticket. #MCM #MCE.”
Here’s the video below;
Somizi insisted that their engagement was not going to be a long one.
“I wanted to wait for the right time to tell everyone, but eish. Paparazzi. I’m not a long time engager. I’m not talking about getting engaged 7 years ago. It must be within a year-ish.”
The couple sparked speculation, after both were seen with some additional bling on their fingers. In October last year Somizi said that a wedding and baby were on the cards in 2018. He further disclosed that he’s getting ready for the big day, which he insists will be soon because he doesn’t believe in long engagements. He wrote;
“Next year I will become Mr. Something.”
Somizi also hinted that he had a major announcement on Sunday evening, which had many fans already popping the champagne. He tweeted;
Don’t be sleeping in tomorrow morning. Not because it’s Monday and you have to work, but because I have some flaming hot news you don’t wanna miss. Just tune in to the Fresh breakfast show tomor morning on Metro FM
