Marriage is a scary vow by a man and woman in love. It is a union between two people who genuinely love each other and commit to stay together forever through all the joy and pain, trials and tribulations. Every marriage has its fair share of challenges and how a couple manages them is often a determining factor of whether their relationship will collapse or hold firm over time. An inseparable pair, Moeketsi also known as Siyabonga/Skizo Chefa and his beautiful wife ‘Manaleli ‘Mmeke’ Chefa share with us how they manage to keep the flame in their marriage burning.
A Tšenola born and raised, ‘Manaleli Chefa, famously known as Mmeke, is a wife, mother and entertainer who studied in Mass Communication with the Institute of Extra Mural Studies (IEMS); National University of Lesotho. She is the face of Cash Plus Lai Lai, a First National Bank’s (FNB) product and a presenter at Bokamoso FM. Her husband Moeketsi Chefa, Skizo is a father, DJ and Entrepreneur who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Administration and Political Science from the National University of Lesotho. Siyabonga also works for Storm Mountain Diamonds as a Public Relations Officer.
The couple met on Facebook around 2015 and their love has become stronger since then. However Siyabonga had a hard time winning over the heart of ‘Manaleli. “I must confess Manaleli gave me a hard time. She played hard to get and went as far as blocking me on Facebook,” he says turning to her with a gentle smile on his face.
‘Manaleli says she was quite hesitant to fall for Skizo because he had a string of admirers and lots of girls after him. She never felt comfortable with the idea of dating someone who is in the limelight for all the girls to see.
