Alicia Keys and fiancé Swizz Beatz have fallen in love with South Africa. So it’s appropriate they have had their impending marriage blessed in a traditional Zulu ceremony. The hip-hop couple traveled to the city of Durban and donned Zulu clobber and sang songs under a fig tree, dubbed “the healing tree”. Alicia, who is five months pregnant, also had the couple’s unborn baby blessed. The pair were in South Africa to headline the World Cup kick-off concert in Soweto.

Even though there were some questionable things that went down “behind the scenes” for them to be able to get together, we wish them well and hope that they have a healthy child. No matter how much you may hate this relationship and how it came about, the truth of the matter is, in order for the two of them to endure all of the scrutiny they went through, they really must love and care about each other. So it looks as though Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz aren’t going anywhere, for now at least. So get used to it! (LOL)
