Tshepi Vundla and Idols SA judge JR Bogopa, have concluded their lobola negotiations and recently celebrated with family and close friends. What seemed like a wedding, actually was not, as JR clarified that they will be walking down the aisle very soon.

Reacting to reports, JR told TshisaLive that the reports were 'flawed' especially where they mentioned that he has kids from a previous relationship.

“We didn’t have a wedding but a family welcoming and celebration (which serves part of the process of getting married), made of close friends and our family on Saturday. It’s no secret Tshepi and I concluded our lobola process in December and this was our next customary step.

“It's not as specified in the article which is flawed in many ways, including having children from a past marriage/relationship.”

Taking to Instagram, JR gushed over Tshepi and thanked her family for allowing the Bogopa's to enter their home and 'choose their flower.'

"The day we started our celebrations of love in the presence of our loved ones. Thank you aboRadebe for the allowing the Bogopa’s into your family with open arms. Thank you maRadebe for accepting my advances and proposal to start this next chapter of our life together. Here’s to many more years together."

Tshepi Vundla and rapper JR Bogopa have been together for 6 years and have two children together, a son Sibabalwe Lehakwe and a daughter Liyema Leru Bogopa, who was born on January 14 2022.

IOL reported that Tshepi gave her fans a glimpse of her special day saying more content will be coming right up, as there were no phones allowed at the venue.

On Sunday, Tshepi reportedly shared images of the decorations with a signage having both their names. “Matshepang and Thabo’s wedding celebration,” read the sign.

She then wrote on Instagram: “One of the best days ever”. Tshepi added, “the fights, tears, nerves and stress were worth it.”

When news of their engagement made rounds, Tshepi denied that they were engaged and said the ring was not big enough to be an engagement ring. She told Sowetan, “The ring that I’m wearing is just a simple one… it’s even a Pandora ring, I don’t know why people would confuse it with an engagement ring, it’s not even sparkly enough. I’m glad people assume it’s expensive but unfortunately, it isn’t,” she told the publication.

Fans think they have been together for 12 years but she said they have been together for 6, “I’ve been with JR for six years, I know it feels like a long time but our relationship is quite young. I’ve never been a girl who set a timestamp on when I should be married nor do I fantasise about walking down the aisle. If it happens, that’s good and if it doesn’t it’s still fine. What matters is that I know where I stand with my partner.”
