Tweeps congratulated the couple on reaching the 25-year mark, adding they wished for them another 25 happy years.

Being in an interracial relationship in apartheid was looked down upon, but it is not much easier now.

Although things have changed over the past 24-years, a lot of people still adapt a racist view when it comes to dating, like this one tweep who said:

"I have been wondering why you defend white people with every energy you have. Today my question have been answered. You are singing for your super and bed!"
