Other male users also took the opportunity to post their beautiful wives dressed in traditional attire.
According to Gold Restaurant, a married Xhosa woman must wear an idaki (a dress given to her by her husband’s relatives). She wears a blanket or shawl around the shoulders, her iduku, and an uxakatha (towel or thick scarf) around her waist.
"The shawl represents the qualities of protection and nurturing expected of her. The scarf obscuring her waistline serves to protect her fertility. She wears these and various other adornments provided by her in-laws as a sign of respect to them."
Online users showed their love on the post:
“Ndicela uMakoti nami (Can I also please have a wife).”
“Xhosa men are the prize for today.”
“When does one wear this beautiful outfit...is it on lobola day or after wedding?”
“Bahle bethuna (They are so beautiful)."
