Sangoma couple Dineo & Solo Langa – Share their spiritual journey. More than their love, Dineo and Solo‘s wedding special was celebrated for the way they captured just how much they value their spiritual side. Now, in their latest vlog, the couple have opened up about what spirituality means to them.
Solo and Dineo said they knew from the first date that they gelled. The couple revealed that they later accepted their ancestral callings as sangomas, going through their individual journeys, but as a couple. Solo revealed that accepting his spiritual calling was a difficult decision, but from a young age he’s always known that he had a gift to explore. Dineo shared that when she found out she had the calling, she had gone to consult about a totally different issue.
“For me, I had gone to check something totally separate. While that was addressed, then came this very heavy block of ‘Hey, you are gifted – fanele o yo twasa.’ My mind went spinning because I was like, ‘What do you mean? It couldn’t be. I don’t know if this is a thing for me,’” she said.
“It took such a long time for me to accept it – because there’s you finding out and then there’s you accepting it.” Dineo said she was grateful to have Solo by her side, because not only was he supportive but he also understood spiritual issues enough to help keep her grounded.
“We are black love, rooted in black spirituality. For me, when people say, ‘Oh my God, you guys are so lucky,’ I think it’s through the guidance of our ancestors.” They opened up about going through the process of initiation together.
