40 year old South African house DJ “Black Coffee” Maphumulo and his sweetheart, actress and director, 29 year old Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa had their white wedding this weekend. The DJ is also popular in Nigeria and performed at Hard Rock Cafe in Lagos in December.

They had been married traditionally for seven years, but had a white wedding – religious ceremony and reception on Sunday January 8 in Sun City.

They are blessed with two children together – Anesu and Asante who walked down the aisle before them, followed by groomsmen, then the DJ with his eldest son Esona from a previous relationship, while his bride was walked down the aisle by her mother.

The love was evident in the hall, which was attended by many high-profile guests.

Here are the first photos and videos of the celebration –

      All of you planning trad wedding for now and after some years white wedding because you want “dream wedding”, be wise o. Make sure you’ve legalized your marriage before taking this route. I’m not sure trad wedding is recognized as legally binding unless you go to customary court to sign.

      A more knowledgeable person should please correct me if i’m wrong. My view of trad wedding is: you and bae invite family and friends, pay bride price and throw a big/small party but no signing of legal document.

      Some women have gone through this route only for their husbands to jilt them after they have had children, and go ahead to legally married another woman.

      A friend’s mum had 5 kids for her man waiting for the dream white wedding only to find out one day that he had gone to court to legally marry another woman.

      A relative of mine is waiting for “dream wedding” after 14 years and kids together. “Husband” is giving excuses every year despite the fact that they have been more than financially capable to have the “dream wedding” for years now. He is a cheat and your guess is as good as mine on his stance on their planned dream wedding.

      So, please, that it worked out for others does not mean it would work out for you and vice versa. Although getting married legally is not a guarantee as the man can still cheat and it can end in divorce, being legally married provides a secure environment for you and your children irrespective of if the marriage lasts long or not or if the man dies.

      Have a proper view of marriage cos the wedding is just a very small part of marriage. You can get married legally now and have a dream anniversary later on

    Abeg this is not new abeg. So many people have taking this route before. I have a friend that his parents did the same thing. The had their white wedding after having 5 kids and 10-15 years after being married the traditional way & court marriage.

      You have a friend *whose* parents did the same thing.

      Come to think of it, yeah I think, yeah, I went to my parents’ church wedding. And I *almost* went to my parents’ court wedding too 😉 😉

      Black Coffee, lovely wife, y’all have fun.

    Customary law is also known as native law and custom which is recognised in Nigeria. See the case of Okotiebo vs Okotiebo.

    However, marriage under the Act (Registry- popularly called court marriage and OR church wedding- the church is licensed by the state to issue the marriage certificate) provides the most water tight protection for a wife compared to only native law and custom, aka; traditional marriage.

    I have heard of a case where a female judge denied a woman access to her husband’s property at his death when his family contested her rights to claim such wealth. Also, if you want to join your spouse abroad, a marriage certificate from the registry or church is the easiest proof.

    My advise is, if you want to delay your wedding so you could have it big, that’s fine but get your certificate from the registry to ensure that you are legally covered just in case and then have your fancy church wedding later. Don’t forget that not all Nigerian churches have been licensed to issue a wedding certificate. If the church does not have its own building, it is likely not licensed. Your local government office can verify for you if your church is duely licensed. Also, the headquarters may be licensed but not a branch of the church. Apparently, it is the building of the church that is licensed not the church as an entity itself. I was surprised to find this out.

    It does not take a lot to get your wedding certificate from the registry. We paid 10k, filled forms and added our passports weeks before our wedding and on the Monday after, we simply strolled in with 1 witness each all in casual or basic everyday wear and we all signed and took our certificate. No photos, we had enough from our trad and church ceremonies.
    Today, this certificate is far more valuable than the trad ceremony. From change of name at the bank to getting a new passport at the Nigerian Embassy in London, this certificate from the registry is the required document. If you live abroad and you’re coming home to get married at a church, ask your friend or relative to check at the local government council to be sure your intended church as well as the branch are duely registered even before printing your cards. I have heard of ‘married’ couples suddenly discovering their so called church wedding certificate wasn’t worth anything and they weren’t legally married all those years because the church they got married in wasn’t legally licensed at the time. Just be sure rather than sorry!

    Ladies protect yourself, be fully covered. Even if you have a certificate from renowned churches like the Anglican or Catholic Church, still get a certificate from the registry, I have both plus trad marriage photos.

    I hope I helped somebody!
