Home News and events As seen on TV, as heard on radio: Wedding Anthem catches up with the one-and-only Emmah

Emmah photo 2 by Bhekid dnYou may have seen her on the big screen and little screen. Maybe you heard her on radio or performing from stage. Perhaps you experienced the power in her voice as you gazed into her soul while she performed at the Miriam Tlali Reading & Book Club or at the opening of the Child Welfare Gauteng Provincial Assembly, not to mention the Dries Niemandt FIFA fan Park in Kempton Park.

She has appeared on Mzansi Magic (DSTV channel 107), Shift (SABC 1) and captivated masses at universities, schools and churches. Today, she graces WeddingAnthem.co.za with her presence. Dear world, please welcome the young dynamite and very authentic Emmah Mabye as she opens up on love, double-barrel surnames, lobola and more.

What you may not know about Emmah is that at some moment in time, she wanted to be an airhostess and that she strutted the Macarena dance in front of a lot of people to get onto a helicopter as a little girl. One thing is clear – as in her childhood dreams and present – Emmah was made to soar, and soar she does in every way.


“I think love is extremely misunderstood and unnecessarily made complex by people in general,” she asserts. What she does know from her inner gut is that love is indeed all that God is – holy. She references her convicted statement to 1 Corinthians 13 (Bible) and reaffirms that love is none other than “the greatest gift”.

“Love is not a feeling you just have and then somewhere along the way you decide you want to let go because you no longer feel it, neither does it show itself in/through oppression. I am drawn to God’s love as it redefines all that we think we know about love. With God it’s evident in every single moment of my life. You know there are just times that you really mess up or don’t do things a certain way yet God’s love for me never fades and it’s just overwhelming. LOVE IS PATIENT AND KIND,” she continues.

Modern in her ways and traditional in her values; she articulates herself clearly and warmly. There’s something about Emmah that cannot be contained in simple words. So exactly how modernised is she? When asked what she thinks of women helping men with their lobola, her response is resolute.

“That's an absolute NO NO in my books. He better hustle for this one darling,” she giggles. “A man has always been seen and known to be the provider in the house, and in my view if he’s already having difficulty paying lobola what more provision in the home?” She is also against paying lobola for a man.

As for the “average” lobola; there are a lot of things which are to be taken into consideration. These include – but are not limited to – education, my upbringing, work level…etc. She laughingly says the absolute minimum that she is willing to consider is R30 000.

As for double-barrel surnames, “I don’t think it’s suppressive when a woman changes her surname to that of her husband’s. Remember the two shall become one…even in name; you are now joined to each other. To some people it’s purely preference or for whatever reason they don’t change. As for a double-barrel surname…hmmm… I’ve never gotten to understand why others would do that, in all honesty I’ve just seen it as something done fashionably,” she continues.

She is currently contently single, hopes to have a multitude of children and desires to use her breath to resuscitate the living-dead.

As a consequence, we're going to all graduate to responsible adulthood
and citizenship. They joined an organization with hardly
any team support. You is capable of doing it from your own home or anywhere
with the matter.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to
be actually something that I think I would never
understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for
me. I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang
of it!

Emmah, what a gem you are! So inspired by this young woman of God. More and more girls and women should be encouraged by such role models :oops:
