Today is a very special day in South Africa, because we are celebrating heritage day. We remember the cultural heritage of many cultures that make up the entire population in South Africa. It is a great time to embrace Premier Soccer League players that celebrated weddings through their own cultures. Former Kaizer Chiefs and current Amakhosi footballers are definitely the stand-out performers in this category. Image credit: Google
Former Kaizer Chiefs winger George Lebese married his beloved wife Melba Nkosi in a mixed cultural wedding that had many tongues wagging. He was still playing for Colorado Springs Switchbacks in the USA where he got married in Zulu and Swati traditional wedding. The wedding proved that cultural preference doesn't matter in a marriage.

Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka married a long-time girlfriend Larelle Wagner in Phalaborwa, Limpopo. It was a Tsonga traditional wedding ceremony with a pinch of modern-day style. He now plays for Mamelodi Sundowns, and he hardly gets game time, but he might receive moral support from his wife. Many can tell that the two had hardships, but they prove their love to each other.

The inform Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma is maturing with age and his maturity has transcended in the fight for the first-choice goalkeeping shirt from Itumeleng Khune. He married his high school sweetheart in a Xitsonga themed traditional wedding with a modern twist in December 2020. Mtswaki Miya took the 26-year-old footballers' last name, and she is now called Mtswaki Bvuma. Image credit: Google
Reneilwe Letsholonyane was one of the best Kaizer Chiefs midfielders, and he is still in his prime years, but football has an age limit. He married his lovely wife Mpho Maboi who is now known as Mpho Letsholonyane, she is a Supersport TV pitchside presenter and a soccer match anchor. Reneilwe married Mpho in a traditional wedding in Soweto, Gauteng in March 2018.
We believe a traditional wedding is beneficial for our footballers, because they are taken back to their roots from the urban lifestyle and rules are set upon them by their elders traditionally. It shows that they still remember their tradition and embrace their heritage. Heritage is important for many people in South Africa, and it defines us in a more diverse universe. It all depends on any individual to follow their heritage.
