Apart from her career, two other things that Dineo takes seriously are her family and relationship with her partner, rapper Solo. She loves him so much so that they both paid lobola for each other!
“A message was conveyed to me through a dream, saying we first had to get our ancestors acquainted with each other. This would, in turn, help them co-exist peacefully going forward. To avoid any friction between the two sides, amadlozi have to pay lobola for each other – although it’s not always the case if two spiritually gifted people are in a relationship. One must get direction from their ancestors. I also had to pay lobola to his ancestors,” Dineo told Drum Magazine
Known as the hottest couple in Mzansi entertainment, Solo and Dineo Moeketsi have consistently shown us in more ways than one why they are one of our faves.
In July 2018, rumours that Solo had tied the knot with Dineo ran amok as pictures of what looked like a traditional wedding surfaced on social media. Although the couple neither confirmed nor denied that they had a traditional wedding, it is quite clear that the rapper had indeed paid lobola for The Queen actress.
In a recent message on Instagram, Solo reminisced about the great decisions that have impacted his journey as a man of purpose. He even mentioned that he had even begun the process of lobola negotiations and even went through an initiation process last year, highlighting the fact that his priorities have definitely changed in these past couple of years.
He wrote: “This time last year, I had sent a delegation to negotiate amalobola. I had also gone through an initiation. I rounded off the year, focussing on my family and tradition. At 30 years old, my priorities are different. My understanding of identity is different. It’s everything to me. Everything connects in my life. My art, my spirituality and my family. Let no man attempt to dismantle what I am building. Laba abahamba nami bakhulu!!”
