Skwatta Kamp rapper Siyabonga ‘Slikour’ Metane and his wife Melissa Wilkinson who just tied the knot recently in a lavish white wedding, celebrated their union with a traditional Xhosa wedding this past weekend.
The couple, have been together for several years, had a traditional Xhosa ceremony on Saturday attended by close friends and family.
The two had their Umembeso ceremony earlier this year but waited until after their white wedding to hold the traditional ceremony.
The pair wore two traditional Xhosa outfits for the ceremony that were designed by popular local fashion designer Paledi Segapo and Andile Bhenya
Slikour told Tshisa Live the traditional ceremony was more sentimental to him than the white wedding.
“The ceremony was great. It had more significance to me because I had family around me that I hadn’t seen in a very long time. It was more sentimental and I really enjoyed it,” he said.
He said that he was grateful to have married his best friend.
“We knew that this was something we had to do. It was really something so special to marry my friend. We are growing together and are going to have our ups and downs but there is no better feeling than marrying your friend,” he added.
After celebrating two ceremonies in one month, the couple said they would take some time before they head out on honeymoon.
“We are back at work and maybe we’ll go away in January,” Slikour said.
