Andile Mpisane shocked many in Mzansi recently when a video of him getting engaged to Tamia Louw was shared online and it went viral instantly.
It would have been just another video, except that Andile Mpisane is known to be in a relationship with DJ Sithelo Shozi (or, in her own words and her words alone, married to him). The DJ recently gave birth to a second child for Andile.
In the viral clip, the Royal AM Chairman could be seen kneeling to propose to Tamia, who said “yes” outright to his proposal.
While some fans elected to comment on the whole set up and wonder aloud if it was real or just a dramatic orchestra, others were quick to point at Andile’s suit and make fun of it because it appeared capacious.
According to some social media users, the suit was too large and didn’t fit the football ace. To this set of people, the suit reminded them of the minister Gwede Mantashe, who had once gone viral for wearing an oversized suit.
With a cross-section of social media users speculating that the whole show might be part of Andile Mpisane’s mother Shauwn Mkhize’s reality show, Andile appeared to have put speculations to rest with an Instagram post.
In the post, a slide of the engagement, one of which showed the fancy engagement ring Tama was wearing, he noted that he’d found an amazing lady who shares his ideals while expressing the hope of a fruitful future with her.
He called her his wife.
Interestingly, Tamia has changed her name on social media from Louw to Mpisane. That notwithstanding, she’s not shared a single picture about the supposed engagement on her main Instagram page at the time of writing.
Also, at age 25, she’s older than Andile Mpisane but younger than the woman who many now consider Andile’sa immediate ex: Sithelo Shozi.
