Minnie Gives Liesl Marriage Advice

Minnie Gives Liesl Marriage Advice

Former Miss SA Liesel Laurie is probably one of the happiest women in the world right now.

How could she not when she’s got a loving man (Dr Musa Mthombeni) who whisked her away to a beautiful and serene mountaintop in Durban a few weeks ago to propose with a gorgeous diamond ring? And when we thought he was done, he sent his uncles for a little commotion in Eldorado Park at Liesl’s parents’ home with some mvula mlomo and well-fed cows – which is ilobolo negotiations.

That is almost every woman’s dream and for the beauty queen and radio host, it has come true. What the couple is now focusing on is their big day, which we reckon will be pretty soon judging by how swiftly they have been moving.

Whilst Liesl decides on a wedding planner, and they look for lavish venues, a gorgeous dress, accessories and everything else in between, she also has another major decision to make. Will she take Dr Musa’s surname and drop hers, or will she go the double barrel route? Decisions. Decisions.

When the Jacaranda FM presenter posed this question on her Instagram, Minnie Dlamini-Jones was ready to give her some advice.

“So will it be Liesl Laurie-Mthombeni or Lies! Mthombeni?” she asked. To which Minnie replied: “Do both boo Liesl Laurie Mthombeni for work? And legally change to Liesl Mthombeni. That’s what I did.”

With Minnie already 4 years deep into her blissful marriage, we’d advise Liesl to take Mrs Jones’ advice because she knows exactly what she’s talking about.

Many of us did not see Dr Musa and Liesl’s relationship coming, let alone an engagement. The two lovebirds shocked Mzansi on Sunday when the former YoTV and Trending SA presenter announced that he had put a ring on it. While many of his fans and followers were not even aware of the fact that he was in a relationship (a serious one at that) a lot more people were gobsmacked to find out that the lady in his life is radio presenter and beauty queen Liesel Laurie.

Musa and Liesl actually recently revealed that they had bee dating for 11 months before their engagement, and one has to commend them for keeping their relationship very private for so long. It also goes to show that they chose their friends wisely, because no news about their relationship, good or bad, was leaked to the media until they were ready.

Speaking to Jacaranda FM about the proposal, Liesl said that she was whisked off to the coastal city of Durban for the weekend by her man. The model says that even the baecation was a surprise because it was Musa who packed her bags for her and ended up leaving her make-up bag behind. Eish, mara men!

The radio presenter added that she thought they were going to have a quiet and isolated time when they arrived, but Musa had other plans, which is when a helicopter took them to a picturesque mountaintop where the big question was popped. We cannot wait for their wedding!
