Saturday 29 September, #SomhaleTraditionalWedding broke the internet as Somizi and Mohale had their long-awaited and wedding in Johannesburg.
Mr and Mr shared events of their special day with the public through social media posts and Mohale reveals that his family had even given his husband a new name ‘Kganya’.
He wrote in an Instragram post:
“So my Husband came to my parents house wearing his Zulu regalia, but came out wearing his new Sotho regalia. Also his new name given to him by my parents is “KGANYA”
Culturally families give a name to a bride when they are being welcomed into a family. The name Kganya has different meanings and this will depend on the context in which it is used. Essentially Kganya means shine, light, to be bright and to be proud.
There hasn’t been any mention of Mohale being given a name by the Mhlongo’s.
