Love is a beautiful thing. It is even more beautiful when couples decide to solidify their union in marriage and could there be a better way to start the journey than by popping the question? We don’t think so.

2021 was a year of love, especially in the entertainment industry.

Our Namibian stars were not left behind as we were able to witness some celebs find love, get engaged and walk down the aisle within the year.

We take a look at some of our favourite stars who got engaged in 2021.


Suzy Eises and Meldinho Henrique


Sorry guys, the gorgeous Suzy Eises is off the market. 

The award-winning saxophonist posted a stunning picture with her bae on Instagram. The conspicuous ring on her finger, coupled with the caption ‘ Real’ said it all.

Here is the scoop; the mysterious Mr Handsome goes by the name, Meldinho Henrique. He is a businessman and an IT specialist. He holds a Masters degree in Business Innovation from the University of Barcelona, Spain- charming right! Who doesn't want a smart and handsome man?

The lovely couple met at a church. A lesson to all churchgoers looking for their better half-  do not despair, you might meet the love of your life in church after all.

Henrique got down on his knee and popped the question during Eises’s sister baby shower.

Pay attention gentlemen, if you want to know some endearing qualities that will get you hitched. Eises says her Mr Right is:
'‘a positive ,happy ,and hard fun-loving guy. Some of the things I like about him is that he is friendly to everyone, loves to laugh, has a great smile, loves his family and parents’'

Betty Davids and Shapwa


Betty Davids, who is known for her glamorous lifestyle said “yes” to her bae Shapwa Kanyama earlier this year after keeping their relationship a secret for a long time.

The two have seen better days in the limelight. After giving birth to their child, Davids was gifted with a  luxury G-Wagon Mercedes Benz as a push present. 

This sparked a conversation on social media with some netizens digging into David’s history. Some went as far as calling  NATIS to inquire if Betty Davids really owned the vehicle.

From the pictures posted by the socialite on Instagram, the engagement took place at Spitzkoppe Lodge and it definitely was a glamorous event with Betty rocking a beautiful red gown.

The lovebirds were set to be married in May but the wedding was postponed to August due to Covid restrictions. It was postponed again for unknown reasons although Betty has since then confirmed that the wedding is still on. 

We can’t wait to see what gown Betty will wear as she walks down the aisle with her Mr Right, but whatever it is we know she will rock it.


Lioness and “M”


La-Toya Mwombola who is better known as Lioness is another celeb who got engaged this year.

The mistress of rap who also happens to be a doctor, (talk about life goals) got engaged to her bae Miguel Hamutenya whom she affectionately refers to as “M ''. The lovebirds met 14  years ago while in school, now isn’t that just romantic?

Lioness confirmed her engagement on Instagram where she posted a picture of her rock bragging about having the real diamond, not the “plastic things.”

We are looking forward to their wedding and we expect it to be grand. After all Lioness already confirmed that she will deliver the wedding of the century- we await nothing less.

Sunny Boy and Nelaolange


It appears that Sunny Boy and his long time fiance Nelaolange are back together and we are excited for them!

The two are parents to two beautiful children and had a fall out following the rapper’s cheating scandal with several women. The unfortunate incident resulted in Nelaolange calling off the wedding.

It now seems that the love birds have decided to let bygones be and give love a second chance if their Instagram posts are anything to go by.

We are hoping to hear wedding bells soon and we wish the couple well.


Amushelelo and Julieta


As if the year could not get any better for love, forex trader Amushelelo got back with his bae Julieta this year after 6 months of being broken up.

The couple seemingly got back together in July after Amushelelo posted a video of them together.

In October, Julieta posted a picture of him and her bae with the caption:
  “Together for two years. – Broke up for six months -Got back together -He proposed after four days of being together -Got married 2 weeks after. I’m magical darling”.

It is evident that indeed Love wins in the end regardless of all the ups and downs.

May all our favourite couples continue winning in love and may all those who did not find love last year be lucky this year. We wish them nothing but the best!
