Noinyane, who is a new mom, got engaged to Phakathi in September last year at Quoin Rock Wine Estate at Stellenbosch in the Western Cape.
“I said ‘YES’ to my best friend! I remember my fiancé saying this: ’Someday when you want to, and you feel my vibe, I will show you how a queen is meant to be treated…’ This was before we even started dating, and I didn’t want to give him time of day.
“You’ve done exactly that from day 1. I’m still in awe. This is really a love like no other, nothing I ever imagined to happen to me. A God thing. I prayed for you. I love you so much, baby! So excited for our future,” said Noinyane at the time.
