Pearl Modiadie is pondering her big special day

The Zaziwa presenter revealed that while she may not have yet set a date for her wedding day, she has warmed up to the idea of having big lavish nuptials.


“We have not set a date for the wedding yet. I got engaged last year December and now December is fast approaching,” Modiadie, pictured, said.

“I wanted something intimate, but come on, I’m black from Tembisa. We have to do ‘the step’. I’m from the hood, what else can happen?

“So where are they going to fit into that picture? So I’ve realised that I had to be more realistic,” Modiadie said.

“So that’s definitely going to happen, I just don’t know when.”

Modiadie is engaged to Nkululeko Buthelezi, who popped the question on a romantic helicopter ride while they were vacationing in Zambia.

“He is the love of my life. He makes me incredibly happy. He’s a good guy, who has put a lot of focus back into my life.

“He sees the bigger picture, I love that about him,” Modiadie said, fighting back tears.

“He makes me strive for more, because I wouldn’t say he’s accomplished, but he is a hard worker. I look at his work and I go ‘I’m lucky to have a man like this’.”

“Make no mistake about it, lobola has been paid. I got engaged one week and the following week they came and they paid lobola,” she said.

Modiadie, who is also a Metro FM DJ shared her joy when she was announced as one of the new ambassadors for Lux.
