Oops, it had been a family welcoming celebration – not Tshepi Vundla and JR’s wedding
South African lifestyle influencer Tshepi Vundla and her music producer and artist partner Thabo Bogopa Junior, better known as JR, hosted an intimate celebration of their love in front of their loved ones last weekend.

House of Zwide actor Thato Dithebe is reportedly replacing JT Medupe on Smoke & Mirrors as the new Leroy.


On Sunday, the content creator had taken to her Instagram stories, the day after the big celebration, and shared a picture revealing the backdrop behind the main table.

Vundla had promised her followers that she would be posting more content from the big day and finally did so, giving more insight into what the ceremony entailed.


The couple had hosted a welcoming of the groom and his family (kulwamkelo lomkhwenyana), a traditional ceremony.

Vundla’s snaps had revealed the beautiful decor by Mzansi celebrities’ go-to event planner Nono Events and more of the stationery that welcomed guests to the traditional ceremony.

Speaking to TshisaLive, JR clarified that they did not have a wedding.

The “Idols SA” judge had also posted a picture from the traditional ceremony and gushed over his beautiful fiancée.

“The day we started our celebrations of love in the presence of our loved ones. Thank you aboRadebe for allowing the Bogopas 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 🥂 NOKO!”

The couple had announced in December that they were engaged to be married and that lobola negotiations had concluded, with pictures of Vundla showing off her engagement ring.

However, the latest pics released on social media yesterday indicated that the couple is now struggling financially as seen with their dilapidated house in the background. Fans are saying this is so because JR is no longer working at IdolsSA as the judge.
