Their engagement took place at the Louvre Museum, Paris, France, where the couple is currently holidaying.

“This is what 'THE ONE' looks like and we can't wait to spend a lifetime and beyond together. The future Tshabane-Moletsanes,” wrote the artist.

Towards the end of last month, Moletsane was invited to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity as a guest speaker, to talk about Celebration vs Cultural Appropriation.

And yes, she took her bae with her, who went there as a girlfriend and will be coming back as a fiancée.

Moletsane’s fans, who have had a crush on her, are happy for the couple. However, they are sad that their crush is getting married, and they will no longer be able to have a crush in peace.

It’s just one of those things where they knew they wouldn’t date her because she was already with Tshabane but enjoyed fooling around.
