Thabang & Vusi Radebe

My name is Thabang Radebe and my husband’s name is Vusi Radebe. We got married on the 17th of May 2014.

 

HOW WE MET:

 

My version of how we met:

 

I used to sing in a band and the person who led the band was a friend of Vusi’s and I. Vusi was known as  “The cute Vusi.” I had never met Vusi before (according to me). Anyway, so this one night I got to our friend’s place for rehearsal. Now what I would do when I got there was call out our friend’s name so that he’d open for me. So that’s what I did I called out and instead of this friend coming to open the gate for me, his really cute guy came and opened the gate. I was so shy but I kept my cool. I introduced myself to him and he’s response was “I know you, we’ve met before.” And I was like,”Huh? We have? O…k.” At that very moment I felt like hiding because I couldn’t remember meeting him before. I still don’t actually. We had the band rehearsal and after rehearsal he brought everyone cake because it was his birthday. I thought that was very sweet. Anyway, that evening I got home and sent him a message on facebook thanking him for the cake and he didn’t reply. So I just got the impression that he wasn’t interested in me so I forgot about him. A month later that same friend of ours was having a braai. I didn’t feel like going but I did anyway, just to show face. I went there after school that evening so I didn’t have time to get all dolled up and puuurtified.  I had a tracksuit on with a pair of sneakers. No make up and I had cornrows.  So I looked very simple and I was comfortable. So I got to the braai and saw a couple of my old friends that I grew up with. While I was chatting to the ladies guess who came to say hi? Yep, Vusi. He really caught me off guard.  After we greeted each other there was an awkward silence then he went back to the people he was standing with. About 30mins later I said my good byes to everyone and left because I was exhausted and didn’t feel like sticking around.  This was on a Wednesday. The 15th of June 2011.

That Saturday I got an inbox on facebook from Vusi telling me that after seeing me on Wednesday something sparked his interest. I was pleasantly surprised and that’s how it all started and now we’re married.

 

Vusi’s version of how we met:

 

According to him we met in Meville outside Cats Pajamas. He was with that mutual friend of ours and I was with my best friend Tshidi.  My best friend greeted them and went to go chat to our friends in a car. Our mutual friend introduced us and we had a brief 10-second chat and that was that.

  34. Where are those people complaining about other’s comments????Most of the comments here are positive and you know why?? Its because this wedding was well executed. So ppl must stop complaining about bloggers because of their honesty, if something is 100% perfect it is and they will say it, and if its not that will also be said. So lekang go tlhaloganya this blog le tlogeleng go bitsa batho mafetwa lesa ba itse akere???#Hides#

    • I agree with u Lolo , if kukuhle we will say and if kukubi we will say. We not jealous but call a spade a spade. Now people want to get emotional bazosidina. I think its family members and friends that get offended.

  41. U know the first question I asked to myself when I saw this woman’s pics was:….WHY WAS THIS GORGEOUS WOMAN STIL SINGLE AT THE FIRST PLACE? My sister UMUHLE YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…JD,and in ur intro, its seems as if you don’t notice how beautiful you are, you seem like a woman that’s down to earth while you are pretty and can sing, let alone your husband JESSSSSSUS NAZE NABAHLE M SPEECHLESS.UR HUBBY IS SO YUMMY TOO. CUTIE VUSIE…you can recognise a pretty woman,plz take good care of each other, wht else can one ask for, u both rocks.

    Mshato wenu ke ay everything is perfect, i like the way you look at each other…so romantic like in moviez..WE ALL SEE LOT OF LOVE IN YOUR FACES.UNKL ANIBUSISE..perfect wedding ever.
