“Although we have been married, we had to seal the deal." -Gugu

This past weekend Mthokozisi Khathi also known as DJ Tira and his wife Gugu Khathi hosted a Umabo ceremony at his home in KwaHlabisa, in KZN.

“I am so grateful for the support we received form our friends. People drove all the way to show us love,” said Gugu. Umabo is a traditional Zulu ceremony where a bride gets introduced to her husband’s ancestors in a cow slaughtering ritual and celebration. It normally takes place after the white wedding, and it is believed that one is not fully married until after the Umabo ceremony in Zulu culture. “Although we have been married, we had to seal the deal. There are cultural things that you cannot cheat,” said Gugu. Even though the couple had been married for almost three years; they had not yet had the Umabo until now. The two have three kids and Gugu says the more children the better. The ceremony had both sides of the family in attendance and Gugu was formally introduced to Tira’s ancestors.
