Having someone who looks up to me is so scary, I am afraid because many times than one I failed. But I always look up and soldier on because I know I need to be a role model to this chap. Even though there have been many times when I’ve taken him for granted, just because its hard to believe that he is all grown up now, but he is an achiever and a brother I’ve always wanted. Youngest son @home
Best Friend since he offered me food in 2012

It was a normal Monday 27 July 2015 to be exact. Oz did not want to go to work that was very normal as well. I remember joking and saying let’s AWOL which was a real joke because I had never done this because of my secret fear of losing my job and abusing the Grace of God that allowed to have that job by lying to my boss and saying I was sick when I was not. But Oz got really excited and said yes Lets AWOL and to my horror I actually considered and agreed.
So we had our self-approved day offs, we were trying to decide what to do, so Oz suggested we go to East London probably catch a movie and lunch and come back to Mthatha. On the road nothing was different either, Oz lets me ramble like he normally does when travelling, he lets me talk endlessly about nonsensical stuff, my job, bad service, our families, what we would do if we won the lotto etc. When we got to EL he took me to a very nice restaurant at the beach which I totally felt under dressed for in my jeans and sneakers. We had our meal, Oz kept asking me if I was going to have desert to which I said I did not know cause I was not finished eating, I would know when I am done if I had space, by this time he was just sitting and watching me as he was done with his meal, and he did not want desert which was very unlike him because he loves desert. Then when I was done we chatted a bit then he got up and knelt on the floor to which I responded “uwise ntoni?” then I noticed the ring box in his hand and I was speechless…I cried, He cried and asked me to marry him while putting the ring on my right hand and I did not notice…
There are so many beautiful things he said to me in that moment even explaining what my ring meant with the heart beneath the diamond. But in that moment all I could think was I must have pleased God in this life or a previous one or more appropriately it was just his unrelenting Grace that allowed someone like Olwethu to look at someone like Ritta and see his future in her…
We met at a mutual friends house Lwando Mafuya, which has given him license to take credit for our relationship…..
Unfortunately it was not love at first sight…But hey..."Look @us"
I saw a guy who was very loud, loved to laugh and make other people laugh, he loved to dance and was basically the centre of attention, not what I was looking for in a partner since I am very shy.
So Mafuya appeals to my better nature and asks that I get to know Oz. I can remember Oz standing outside my door it was during the week , he was from work and he was dressed formally and even had spectacles on, a very different guy from the one I remembered from Mafuya’s house. To be honest I was quite intimidated this guy looked so serious and professional and completely out of my league. I got to know Oz and what stood out for me were his strong values, his views on family and taking responsibility for one’s own life. The way he spoke about his mother and his son Kamva. Those were the things that slowly as I got to know the man Olwethu Mdudi made me fall irrevocably in love with him. He is still loud and loves to laugh and dances without caring who is watching but I now love those things about him too they are so freeing and inadvertently free those around him as well including my shy self.The fact that he is also good looking is just a bonus ☺.
Once upon a time a long, long time ago (2011 to be precise), right in the middle of an ordinary and perfect Saturday afternoon, cold outside so adults were indoors and having their “coffee” with trusted people, my path crossed with Ritta’s. At that time I didn’t know that she would trick me to do what I’m about to do, and I actually fell for it, and I love it.
We are at a friend’s house, having a Saturday braai with friends, Ritta had just arrived in town and the only person she knew and trusted was Mr Mafuya (my friend), so she was also invited to the braai of only trusted people. Me and her, same place? Same time? “Coincident?”
I continued with my usual self, what I normally do @a braai, eating meat. I spoke to her during the course of the braai session, and I could see that she was a bit irritated. But would laugh from time to time. Next day we go to Umzimvubu damn (Ulwandle lwethu) and that’s only when I got her proper attention and she gave me her number. Fast forward to Mid-week, I visited her place, knocked at the door and she came to open, there and then my heart skipped a bit.
I immediately fell in love with her looks, unpremeditated smile, the way she would talk to me, the level of respect when she speaks. I immediately knew that she was meant for me. We conversed the whole night. I guess you could say the Rest is history
I grew up in Mount Frere, Eastern Cape, small town with bigger opportunities and amazing people. I am born to a sizeable family of 7. I grew up dreaming of being a tractor driver, those dreams have not stopped, soon to be realised. I went to different primary schools in and around Mount Frere area (Mqhokweni, Sirhudlwini, Mtsila, Cabazi, and Mbodleni Junior). Then for my High school I went to Queenstown - Maria Louw High School. Tertiary was @Port Elizabeth Technikon then degree at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.
When I was growing up I was a chubby chap and was normally teased by my peers about my weight, called names such as "Watyeba", "Dombolo" and so on. All that changed in university and was called by different names now "Hunk", "Handsome".
> I Do not know about now.<
I started with my professional working career @a Bank in PE, then went to Government Department in PE as well. I discovered a lot about me and my professional working ethics during this time. In 2009 I moved back to Mt Frere, this is when I met the love of my life, the woman I just cant imagine being away from, the most amazing woman in the entire universe.
I just cant wait to change her surname to mine. I know my parents cannot wait to have their first ever "Makoti" and my siblings are as excited to welcome her into the family.
I was born in Lusikisiki on the 27 January 1987 to Zoleka and Lenny Meth. I am the youngest of three. I attended primary school in Hillbrow Primary in Lusikisiki where I met one of my best friends Michelle McGowan however after grade 1 my mom decided that my sister and I should attend Mtwalume Primary school in KZN where she also believed I should repeat grade one, unfortunately Michelle and many other Lusiki kids fell victim to the same fate because my mother convinced their parents we would have a great foundation. I was always a very introverted child with a naughty streak I am told. My sister and I provided great entertainment at boarding school due to our fights which were often physical and I believe strengthened our bond. Athletics assisted me in terms of confidence through school and made me a somewhat popular kid, however I also got a bit teased by the boys because it meant I was severely flat chested, lean and muscular to the horror of my teenage self (I would kill for my body now).My parents never saw me pass primary school they are both late my mom in the year 2000 and my dad in 2002.
I then attended high school in Kokstad at Mount Currie SSS. This is where I refused to part take in any sport because my cheerleader was gone (my Mom). Needless to say the lack of sport meant I also lost most of my confidence leaving a shy mostly awkward, tomboy who my sister was quite shocked to get to know.
I attended varsity in Durban at UNISA for two years then dropped out. Then I got my first job as a casual at Power factory shop where I believe I learnt everything about work ethics, service and the importance of money. In 2008 July I got my first job at bank in Butterworth from where I bounced around Mthatha at different branches up until I landed in Mt Frere where I met Olwethu. I was never one of those girls who dreamt of getting married, the thought actually scared me to death. So it was very significant when two weeks after meeting him I told my sister and friend Vuyo Tywabi that if I ever get married I would probably marry him….to which rightfully so they were horrified because they knew how socially awkward and blunt I could be at times and said they pray to God I did not say that to him because the poor guy would run away…and thankfully I had not.
Whenever I tell our story I always say it was not love at first sight but that is not entirely true, because Olwethu being who he is always makes sure he shows people the happy, laughing and quick witted Olwethu but very seldom shows the extremely intelligent, observant, patient (at least with me), believe it or not shy and loving individual that he is…and from the moment he exposed that guy to me I was in love……..
We have been getting questions from our Friends asking about the wedding theme and colours. We do not expect anyone to look like our tables and chairs on the day so we want you to be comfortable in your own colours. The Theme is however Fusion - Africa meets west > Go on be creative<
