I meet up with award-winning rap muso Zothile (stage name Solo) and The Queen actress Dineo Langa (nèe Moeketsi) in the thick of their Western wedding preparations, and the production of their three-part wedding documentary, titled Kwakuhle Kwethu. They are executive producing it through their joint company, Langa Enterprise Hub, and it’s set to air on Mzansi Magic this month.
The pair seem to have it together despite admitting to being overwhelmed. Their biggest concern, they say, is executing the documentary in a way that won’t paint them inauthentically. “This is the first, and only, time people will get to engage with us as a couple. And the first, but not the last, time they will encounter us as executive producers,” explains a palpably tired, but still pleasant Dineo.
In the midst of all the planning, couch-cuddling sessions and sleeping in are two activities currently keeping them afloat, Dineo says, “There are some days when it feels like I’m not allowed to rest for as long as I want — and that’s a very jarring realisation. My attention span sabotages me because I sometimes want to nap during the day and Zothile always reminds me that I can’t afford to with all our deadlines. With there being so many tasks that need to be fulfilled, things became so bad that he got me into making to-do lists! I honestly had a really great memory until things got overwhelming! But, that’s the beauty of being in a partnership — what I forget, he remembers.”
