South African footballer Teko Modise married his long-term girlfriend Koketso Chipane, popularly known as “Kokieberry” on Instagram, two weeks ago. 


City Press reports that Teko Modise married Koketso Chipane two weeks ago in an intimate wedding with around 30 of their closest friends and family members in Meadowlands, Soweto. Members of the community were reportedly not allowed to attend the wedding because of lockdown restrictions. 

The pair have reportedly been together since 2017 and the footballer paid lobola for his wife in 2018. The couple had the first part of their traditional wedding in 2018 and this is the second part, according to the publication. Koketso is reportedly expecting a baby as her baby shower took place this weekend.

“This was the second leg where her family was officially handing the brides to the Modise’s,” a source said to City Press.

Teko Modise was previously married to Felicia Modise from 2010 to 2013. He also paid lobola for model Lizelle Tabane. However, the relationship did not last long and they called it quits in 2014.

In another Instagram post that dates back to August, Teko called Koketso his wife, posting a selfie of her with a ring on her finger, for her birthday. 

Koketso also shared a sweet tribute to her husband for his birthday in 2020. Read the sweet post below. 


The publication also reported that the wedding was not smooth sailing as the former Orlando Pirate’s player’s uncles did not approve of him hosting the wedding at the family home.

“There were also issues of the venue as other family members were against him having the ceremony at the family house, arguing that he should have got a venue other than a family house,” said a source to the publication. 

“He hired bouncers to ensure that protocol was observed. If you didn’t have (an invitation) you were not allowed in,” the source continued. 

However, the wedding reportedly went on without the uncles.
