“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances, if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung’s above quote gives meaning to a beautiful love story of gospel sensation Sizani Mdlongwa who engaged his girlfriend Thulisile Matshazi after seven years of dating.
The Isabelo Sami hit maker proved his love to Matshazi by engaging her in front of a huge crowd during his live DVD recording which was held on 30 November at the Family Of God (FOG) Auditorium.
Their unique love tale started in 2012 when they were going for a FOG camp meeting in Harare by train, the long journey made them connect and develop a chemistry as revealed by Mdlongwa.
“I met the love of my life Thulisile Matshazi while we were going for a camp meeting in Harare as FOG seven years ago, the long journey by train connected us together and that was the day I realised she is the one I want to spend my life with,” said Mdlongwa.
There are so many incidents and places where Mdlongwa could have asked Matshazi to be the love of his life, why did he engage during a performance on his live DVD recording?
“I decided to propose at FOG because this is the church that groomed both of us and I had to propose in front of thousands so that I can inspire fellow brothers to do the same because marriage is a beautiful thing in the eyes of the Lord.
“It felt so good to see a beautiful lady (Matshazi) melting in front of me and when she said YES, I almost shed tears because I knew her commitment to our relationship will change us forever in a God blessed way,” said Mdlongwa.
As for Matshazi, knowing Mdlongwa since they started dating to date was a learning curve where she learnt true love in the world exists, no wonder she welcomed the engagement with both hands, tears of joy rolling down her chicks.
“Honestly to me it came as a surprise, I was just there to help and support the love of my life during that day, but wow, he surprised me with a rock (engagement ring).
“I said yes because for the past years I have been with him he showed me that true love exists and I want to experience it for the rest of my days on earth,” said Matshazi.
The couple is planning to have children after their white wedding which is set for a date which is yet to be discussed.
