We always knew that anything associated with the name ‘’Kenny Kunene’’ has to be luxurious and prestigious, but we never expected this much luxury for an umembeso held in Kimberley for him and Whitney Mhlanga on Saturday.
For those of you who don’t know what Umembeso is, Umembeso is a zulu tradition that celebrates the union of marriage between two individuals but most importantly the union of the bride and the groom’s families. As a symbol of appreciation to the bride’s family the groom’s family presents the bride’s family with gifts (according to the list provided by the bride’s family prior to the membeso ), these gifts include but not limited to: blankets, pinafores, head scarves, clothes , food, straw mats, a live goat amongst others.
That’s the traditional style, in true Kenny Kunene style, his bride arrived in a helicopter before walking a red carpet.
“She is now officially Whitney Nonkululeko Kunene hahahaha,” Kenny tweeted.
This tradition saw high-profiled celebrity guest in attendance, celebs like Khanyi Mbau, who wore a hot pink number.
We at Entertainment_SA congratulate the newly-weds!
