PICS: Lerato Kganyago’s husband shuts down Valentine’s Day with his gift (again)

Lerato Kganyago’s husband, Thami Ndlela upped his game yet again this year, gifting his wife with a luxurious hotel, spa and restaurant for Valentine’s Day.

If you thought receiving a dozen red roses on Valentine’s Day was extravagant, you’ll be blown away by the gift South African actress, model and media personality Lerato Kganyago’s bae spoiled her with to mark the romantic occasion.

Last year Lerato’s hubby, Thami Ndlela booked out the FNB stadium and booked songstress Zonke to serenade his wife while the couple ate their candlelit dinner in the middle of the stadium.

This year, however, Ndlela outdid himself, gifting his one true love with a beautiful luxury hotel, spa and restaurant.

Lerato unveiled the renovated hotel during a live Twitter video on Monday night.

In the video, she is seen cutting a dark grey ribbon with a knife while a white marble staircase strewn with rose petals can be seen just beyond the ribbon.

As she walks up the stairs, a waiter greets her at the top with a tray holding two champagne flutes. As Lerato walks into the reception area of her new hotel, the actress exclaims her happiness at how gorgeous everything looks. She is especially blown away by the black marble staircase leading up to what we assume are the hotel rooms.
