Every Wednesday we will be publishing our interviews with one of your favourite South African Christian Hip Hop “creatives”. But it is love week here at SACHH and we can’t help but want to celebrate love with you in our couples edition. Today we are catching up with the couple that shared their engagement with us, Adriaan and Antonia.
The two artists met back in 2018 at the Kings of the South tour, they were touring together with Ricwa and Keagan Holland, when the love blossomed. They have since collaborated on a few projects such as Tell Me Remix (by Keagan Holland ft Adriaan and Antonia), Conversations and a powerful spoken word performance they paired for was All I need is you at AFM Immanuel Newclare Church in May last year.
Antonia Benson is a singer, dancer, actress, and poet who’s talent has even taken her to the USA. Adriaan Jacobs is a poet, rapper, producer, and entrepreneur who has featured in a few national and international radio stations. This couple is definitely #couplegoals. we got to ask them a few questions here are their responses:
What is the cheesiest thing your partner has done?
Adriaan: Something that She had said …you know us and words are one and the same.
Antonia: Hahaha well… I can’t say hey, like maybe it was something cheesy he said but that’s it.
Let’s talk faith, how important is including God to a relationship?
Adriaan: I believe that it is the compulsory foundation for any Christian relationship, in fact, any relationship. Without God, we can easily only focus on each other’s mistakes but when God is the Centre, your focus is no longer on the mistakes but on actually making things work between the two of you by having faith that things will work out.
Antonia: it’s of vital importance to us, God is our Go-to place for any advice, for guidance. He holds everything together
What song best describes your partner?
Adriaan: Jacob song by Bri
How do you balance intimacy with God, work, family, and romance?
Adriaan: Making sure that time is made regardless of busy schedules
Antonia: Well it’s just about making time and knowing that there is a time for everything.
“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.Ecclesiastes 4:9a
It is beautiful to witness young love that is built on God, Adriaan and Antonia show us that their couple goals are God first, making time for one another and building each other in every aspect. “I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me”- Philippians 4:13
SACHH raises the flag and raises the bars.
