Criselda Kananda is a new makoti


Metro FM DJ Criselda Kananda has tied the knot, traditionally!

Sowetan reports that the blushing bride had to fit in her final lobola negotiations in between her jet-setting to Durban for the Metro FM awards this weekend.

An unexpected event in one of the families caused a delay in the finalisation of Kananda's entry into her beau, Siyolo Dudumashe's, family.

"We had planned to have the negotiations on the 14th of February, but the date had to be moved because one of the negotiators unfortunately passed away," Kananda told the daily.

Despite the Metro FM Awards and her negotiations being scheduled for the same day, the beauty managed to kill both her birds with one stone.

The radio personality was present at the pre-awards party on Friday night, managed to catch the first flight out of Durban to attend the lobola proceedings and still made it back to Durban in time for the awards.

"The negotiations actually began early in the morning. By midday people were already having their lunch," she revealed to Sowetan.

The Metro FM Talk host feels very blessed to be Mrs Dudumashe and has added that the nuptials which will take place in winter will be "private" and "nothing extravagant".

We wish Criselda all the joy and success in her new journey as a makoti.

Here's a peak at what the gorgeous bride looked like on Saturday.
