Generations’ Letoya Makhene Goes Shopping Preparing For Wedding
Unlike other couples who stall the wedding process after getting engaged, Letoya and her partner Lebo Keswa are not tripping when it comes to their romance.
Letoya Makhene who plays Tshidi Phakhade on Generations took to Instagram to update her fans that she was busy shopping for her in law’s blankets.
According to their culture, the traditionally wedded couple have to seal the deal by exchanging gifts which go towards each other’s respective families.

Makoti has been given her list of gifts for the in laws and I just wanted to spoil my new family with nothing but the best double-ply, mink blankets.
Lebo Keswa recently paid lobola for Letoya after getting on one knee to propose, following a romantic hot air balloon ride.
Letoya Makhene revealed that her woman doesn’t waste time when it comes to their romance.
Her family hosted a lobola indaba at their family home in Soweto, at which the actress Lebo Keswa officially asked for her and her idlozi (ancestor)’s hand in marriage.
“Here’s a fun fact! I was literally only her fiancé for a week before her family came to pay their respects to my family.”
Letoya who is a sangoma explained why it’s important for a partner to pay Lobola and why it is also important to pay respect to their partner’s idlozi during the lobola rite.
When you lobola a woman you’re paying respect to her parents and family and thanking them for your future wife. Ukulobola idlozi is paying respect to the ancestors for the gift of the person that is in your life.
