- Brenden and his wife got married earlier this year
- He opens up about how his mom controlled his finances
- His wife saved him and his friend when they were in a pickle and he knew she was the one
South African musician Brenden and his wife have become one of Mzansi’s top couples. Their simple, elegant and private wedding that was held earlier this year was what set the bar for this couple.
They made a swift movement from engaged to married, showing their surety in their love. Brenden recently gave the down low on his reasoning behind making her his wife.
But judging from how quick the couple moved after their engagement, it’s clear that they have always known they were meant for each other, Brenden recently opened up about what led him to popping the question.
In an interview on Massiv Metro, Brenden opened up about his poor money management and how his mother had to handle his finances. He also says that this is one of the reasons he married his wife.
“My brother and I were out, and we were within groove and so I was dating my girl at the time, and so I had this system where - because I wasn’t good with money, I’d let my mom hold my money but it’s not that I didn’t have money, my mom would hold it for me, she’d put it in a savings for me, so I would call her and be like: Mom I need this much and then she transfers…”
His mother handling his finances did not always play in his favor. Briefly.co.za learnt that one of his friends got into an accident and had to fix the car before the parents saw it, but he didn’t have access to his money to help, but his girlfriend Mpumi Ledwaba, now wife played the hero that night.
“...we have a slight accident...at around 3 am in the morning, so now, I don't have money...so I call my girl, I’m like: ‘babe I think I need like R3000, I’ve had an accident.' I tell her the whole story and she didn’t ask why she just sent the money...and I paid her back obviously. But the fact that I was in a situation...she could’ve said: ‘what were you doing’ and I was like yoh! This girl is the one’...that was like the first time I actually thought about it. I’d never experienced such kindness, and it wasn’t about the money, it’s more about, the fact that she was there, she didn’t ask questions, she just transferred."
They have grown stronger each day and are a perfect example of what a couple should be.
