Letoya Makhene’s Father Trashes Men During Daughter’s Wedding
Generations: The Legacy actress, Letoya Makhene who plays the role of a determined businesswoman, Tshidi Phakade finally tied her knot with businesswoman and long time lover, Lebogang Keswa on Tuesday 22 December.
They had a traditional wedding in Moletsane Sports Complex in Soweto.
Her father, a celebrated legendary music artist, Gerald Blondie Makhene couldn’t help but express how happy he was that his daughter chose to marry a woman instead of a man, “because men are trash”.
“I’m happy that my daughter is married to a woman.
The two of you make me proud, absolutely proud. These two women have decided to be the change-makers. I can sleep now since my daughter decided to take a woman.
Guys don’t take any offence, men are not trash but men are trash. If you look at the last 100 years and see what men have done – war, bloodshed, killing, diseases, and men did this. I’m not saying there’s no man like Mkhulu daddy here,” said Blondie during the wedding ceremony.
Blondie revealed that the wedding happened after both families had a family talk where they exchanged gifts to build respect and unity amongst families that are so different.
Makhene’s family is deeply rooted in African traditional religion – Bungoma – while Lebohang’s family follows Christianity.
But that couldn’t stop the cute couple from bringing the two families together.
It was Lebogang Keswa who paid lobola for Letoya after proposing a few months ago.
The two have beat the growing stereotype against LGBTQ++ marriages in African communities
