No wedding bells for Bontle and Priddy Ugly, the couple apologise.
Media personality and dancer Bontle Modiselle apologised for what seemed like a bogus wedding between her and her rapper boyfriend Priddy Ugly.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Modiselle explains that although the duo is in love and have been dating for a while, they are not engaged nor married.
She admitted that everything was staged for a music video.
“More than genuinely loving the song, we loved being the representation of what it advocates - a young, black love that have the intention of solidifying their lifetime commitment to each other, represented here as marriage. We understood the implications of deciding on how to best go about making the greatest impact in encouraging a conversation of love, something that doesn’t make the headlines, and so we were bold in our approach.
"Everything that we posted were all images leading up to the video, we just hadn’t announced that yet. Those who know us personally, who were all notified and prepared prior to the video dropping, know that we are not the type of folk to let out the details of our personal lives like that. People know of us being together but do not know anything beyond that, particularly the state of our relationship. That privacy remains true for our engagement and marriage which will remain our private matter. Those who need to know, will know.
"Apologies to those who feel disappointed right now but we hope you find solace in us being together and happy. Major love to those who laughed it off and found it brilliant. Thank you to those who give continued support. Reaction and interpretation is open to anything. Everyone is open to decide how they feel about it. We, however, are happy and proud of it. It’s huge. It’s beautiful. It’s really all love. ✊❤”
Although fans congratulated them on the beautiful music video, others including King Kotini aka Riky Rick were not impressed.
“So you saying the wedding wasn’t real? Cmon fam,” he commented.
Another Instagram user also commented” Played with our feelings ☹️😂”
“WHOOOOO SHAME, I'M HURT ☹️ BUT...❤THE VIDEO👌”, wrote another.
