Noma and Bonga first met when Noma was about 6, both are from Durban and he lived across the road from her grandmother’s house. She is a chatterbox from the jump, which is probably why she is in journalism, and he seems quiet at first but when they are together, they are a riot!
They were on a date on the promenade and he suggested that they take a walk along the shore. Along the way he stopped to write “will you marry me?” in the sand and got down on one knee and pulled out the ring. Noma is the first to tell you that a beach proposal is probably cheesy, and she is a sucker for cheese, but I think it sounds like one from the HeartBandits.
They have a mutual love for basketball and when we did this shoot at Melrose Arch, I probably cut into some BNL game time. It was worth it!
