Our Story

Relantionships are at the Core of Everything we do.

Founded under the vibrant skies of Southern Africa, Ikhetheleng is the brainchild of Liopelo Consultants, a team passionate about love, culture, social events, and technology. We saw a need for a platform that not only connects mature individuals but also celebrates the rich tapestry of African heritage and the possibility of interracial harmony.

Our Success Stories

Samantha & Alex

Samantha from Johannesburg and Alex from London might never have crossed paths if not for Ikhetheleng. Samantha, an art curator, was looking for someone who could appreciate the finer things in life, while Alex, a history professor, wanted a partner to explore the world’s museums with. Ikhetheleng’s intelligent matching brought them together, and their first conversation lasted hours. Despite the distance, they found ways to share experiences, like virtual museum tours and art exhibitions. Eventually, Alex flew to South Africa, and their connection in person was undeniable. Now, they’re planning a life together, blending cultures and continents.
