Toukoula said she is definitely going to have a small wedding.
Mlogeni agreed, saying it is the best.
Bae also stated that only her family members will be present.

In other news, Bill Oldham, the founder of the Thought Leadership & Innovation Foundation (TLI), is doing all he can to ensure that African-Americans can have access to good job offers in the cyber security industry.
Oldham intends to close the gap between students and post-college by introducing cyber-security courses to those training at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
According to him, at present, about 3% of such jobs are held by African-Americans, a statistic he is not too happy with.
Per a 2015 Pew Research, about 300,000 students were enrolled in HBCUs at a point in time, which is a significant increase over the last decade.
