Inside Pule Ekstein's lobola celebration

Fame & Fortune

AmaZulu playmaker Hendrick Pule Ekstein had a Christmas season to remember as he recently tied the knot with his wife Grace. Here’s a look. 

While there is no dedicated season for weddings, we have been accustomed to couples having their beautiful ceremonies during the festive and summer seasons – and as such, Ekstein has taken this period to celebrate a huge personal milestone by becoming a husband.

Pule Ekstein, a welcomed return 

Like titles, goals and victories, weddings are to be celebrated. The Usuthu attacking-midfielder has had a decent return to South African shores, to say the least. Having joined Benni McCarthy’s side back in August, the 30-year-old has been a notable feature in the KwaZulu-Natal outfit and has even played in the CAF Champions League. 

However, his biggest moment of 2021 came on 22 December, when he and his wife celebrated marriage in an elegant blue-and-white themed lobola celebration. 

The Bekkersdal-born maestro and his partner Grace, who owns a boutique,  wore stunning matching traditional outfits in an intimate gathering.  

Did you know? 

Rather interestingly, Ekstein’s wife appears to be very close friends with a prominent Chiefs supporter Itumeleng Mashele, who won the Gauteng Sports Fan of the Year in 2013.  

With that said, one wonders whether or not the couple met during Ekstein’s five-year stint at Naturena. 

Your thoughts, please? 

With the next round of the CAF Champions League fixtures set to be announced, how far do you AmaZulu progressing into the competition?
