It's all systems go as Kwesta and his missus, Yolanda Mvelase prepare for their white wedding.

The couple, who two months ago held an Umembeso (exchanging of gifts) ceremony, which is usually celebrated before a wedding have been hard at work to prepare for their big day.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Kwesta said that Yolanda was planning a grand affair.

 "It's her dream to have a grand wedding. So, she's in charge of it all. She's been working on the date and all the details. It's a day where I am going to be completely useless. She is going to tell me what to wear, where to stand and what to do. I am just going to be the bank," Kwesta said with a laugh.

The couple have a young daughter together, and several months ago committed to each other by getting matching ring-finger tattoos.

"We got them before anyone even knew that we were planning to get married. I just woke up one day and was like this is what I want to do and I hope she likes it. At first it's all about the romance and love but over time it becomes about growth and I want to grow my family with her and my daughter," Kwesta said.

He said that the best part about being a soon-to-be-husband was that he doesn't go hungry.

"She is always cooking. There's always something to eat. But preparing for marriage also grounds you. It shows you things you didn't know before. I used to think about the future as one or two years from now, but now I think about my daughter's years in varsity and how I can set her up. That's 18 years ahead. I'm thinking further than I have ever thought before," he revealed.

In fact this sometimes keeps him up at night.

"I'm always thinking about what kind of father I am to my daughter and how I can be better. Fatherhood is a learning curve. I can't sit here and say I am 'father of the year' but I am working towards that," he added.
