- A husband paid a heartfelt tribute to his wife on Twitter
- He said she was at university when they met, but all he had was a matric
- Instead of looking down on him, she inspired him to become a graduate
A Johannesburg-based man paid tribute to his supportive wife on Twitter recently for never looking down on him.
Using the Twitter handle @BasaniCleaners, the hubby shared photos of himself and his wife, Boledi Makofane. He wrote:
She was at varsity, on magazine covers and I was an unemployed dude with matric and a driver's license only. She saw me not for what I was but for what I can become. She pushed me and loved me. I'm a graduate all thanks to this black woman.
Boledi is a model, Briefly.co.za learned. This isn't the first time her appreciative hubby has praised her on Twitter.
Earlier in September, he wished her a happy birthday with another heartwarming tribute:
I pray that you meet someone who will help you achieve your dreams. This born-free changed my life; I was a mess. You saw something in me that only mothers see in their children. You saw me for what I can be, and not for what I was.
Boledi and her hubby are indeed a fine example of couples propping each other up to achieve their full potential.
Tweeps called their relationship "beautiful" and said Boledi is a keeper.
