One of South Africa’s beloved media personalities, businesswoman Basetsana Kumalo, is still very much in love with her husband Romeo Kumalo.

The couple has stood the test of time and have just celebrated their 21st anniversary. Bassie, as she is commonly known, penned a sweet message for her husband on Instagram, thanking Romeo for his “unwavering devotion and love”.

“Twenty-one years later, I will still choose you, marry you, have your babies, build a life with you and make the most beautiful memories. But then that’s exactly what you have given me and given us. Thank you for your unwavering devotion and love for me and our children.

“You have made it so easy to love you all these years. Happy anniversary to us sthandwa sam. May the hand of God always be upon you, protect you, grant you long life, good health and pure joy! I love you Mntungwa, we love you Pops (as your kids call you).”

Bassie has frequently shared how much she loves her husband and during their attendance at Miss South Africa 2021, she called Romeo her “heart keeper, boyfriend and the father of her children”.

In August, the Miss SA 1994 wrote another heartfelt post for Romeo.

“He doesn’t like pictures….he’s also not much for crowds…yes I love this handsome dude, but that’s why I also like him, I like him a whole lot.

“He doesn’t conform and really doesn’t give much credence to who says what and what people think. He inspires me every day,” said the businesswoman.
