Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz Receive Zulu Blessing in Africa

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

During their trip to South Africa for the World Cup, Alicia Keys and her fiancé Swizz Beatz had their union and unborn child blessed in a traditional Zulu ceremony in Illovo, a suburb of Johannesburg.

According to Times LIVE, the blessing took place under a fig tree known as “the healing tree,” which represents good fortune and health. The happy couple was accompanied by Alicia’s mother Terri Augello, younger brother Cole, and a camera crew documenting their trip.

The Grammy-winning songstress, who is around five months pregnant, wore a blue sash and tribal beads, while Swizz sported a red sarong, leopard-print sash, and fur-trimmed hat, as they were blessed by two female priests.

    What a lovely couple!

    And before you start talking all that “homewrecker” stuff, Mashonda had already filed for divorce before Swizzy started seeing Alicia. There’s NO way they were getting back together anyhow, so I fail to see how he’s the one cheating…

    I WONDER IF ZULU KNOW SHE A HOME WRECKING HO AND HE IS AN ADULTERER. SHE BROKE UP A VOW THAT WAS VOWED BEFORE GOD TO BE SCARED. THE ONLY WAY THIS IS BLESSED IF BOTH REPENT AND ASK MASHONDA FOR FORGIVENESS. #JUSTSAYING YO

    @seductress they were not linked together until after the statement was released that they had been seperated for seven months and were filing for a divorce in April of 2008. Mashonda needs to blame someone for the failed marriage because she herself maynot want to face the fact that it wasn’t working out for other reasons.

    @Seductress:

    You might want to read my earlier comment. Mashonda was making Swizzy choose between her and his older son…

    I’m really happy for the two of them. I hope it works out because Alicia deserves nothing but the BEST.

    Are you people serious? I agree completely with Seductress (minus the name calling). Even if there were issues in the marriage, and there obviously were, that doesn’t excuse their behavior. If they wanted to go about things in a way that could’ve been respected, Swizz and Alicia should’ve waited until the divorce was final.
