Actress Letoya Makhene’s Father – Blondie Makhene Says Men Are Trash On His 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.
