With over 100 million views on YouTube, Master KG, and Nocebo’s hit, Jerusalema not only features dancers around the world, but #JerusalemaChallenge also gives Raymond Seema the perfect opportunity to propose marriage to his high school sweetheart, Dineo Mashilo outside Shoprite in Mokopane, Limpopo.
Both Seema and Mashilo work at the Mogalakwena mine outside Mokopane and have known each other since high school.
Dineo made Raymond to wait the whole year before agreeing to date him.
“Now, 12 years later, we are making it official and I couldn’t be happier with the way he suggested it, and that we will spend the rest of our lives together,” said Mashilo.
When 30-year-old Seema saw supermarket workers practicing dance steps for the challenge, led by frontline workers from all sectors, she called 25-year-old Mashilo, and asked her to meet him at Mokopane Shoprite.
“When I arrived, there was a great atmosphere, and I was so involved in the dance that I barely noticed Raymond on one knee. When I realize his intention, I couldn’t believe my eyes? It was a complete shock! I could hardly contain my excitement,” Mashilo said excitedly.
Negotiations for Lobola will take place soon, and we will consider our marriage once we’re finished. We want a white wedding. We have not discussed when this will happen, but it must be after the coronavirus pandemic,” Mashilo said.
