What is lobola?

Lobola is an African custom by which a groom's family pays in cattle or cash to the bride's family before the marriage.

In South Africa, lobola is practised by Zulus, Xhosas, Swazis, Silozis, Shonas and the northern and southern Ndebelse.

It is sometimes referred to as "bride price."

Briefly News previously reported that an American fellow practised his lobola negotiation skills by negotiating prices of fresh produce.

His facial reactions may hint that his skills are on the right track, but are they enough to convince the uncles to give their daughter away? Only time will tell.

@beyondborder_jh's video on Tiktok had other men dating South Africans, hoping their skills were as top-notch as his. The chap sharpens his negotiation skills by haggling with a fruit vendor selling watermelon.
