Dineo wants more public affection

Dineo wants more public affection

Dineo who recently scored another television gig with Shugasmakx titled My Perfect Proposal explained during an interview with Sunday World that public displays of affection is something generally frowned upon within the black community.

The former O-Access presenter thinks the program might change black folks mentality towards public affection, something she believes would be a great thing.

“When one sees a black couple or family showing affection towards one another, it sometimes feels strange, simply because we grew up in homes where such things as being all lovey dovey were a rarity,” Dineo told the publication.
“It’s the simple things like holding hands and kissing. Those things are not easily done by us.”

With MyPerfect Proposal around the corner Dineo believes it’s this celebration of love regardless of race and colour which will break down cultural expectation.

“The show is inclusive of all races and mixed weddings, it gives blacks an opportunity to also be more spontaneous It gives an incredible presentation of what love is” she added.

Dineo definitely has a point here, with all the disastrous wedding kisses we’ve seen on Our Perfect Wedding and the awkward hugs we witness on shows like Khumbul'ekhaya we can only hope that My Perfect Proposal will make black communities warm up towards the idea of displaying more public acts of affection.
