The Dynamic Duo
A sweet story of fate brought Osman and Shaaista together. The couple met at a mutual friend, neither of whom had heard of the other nor ever met before, although having both lived in Laudium (in central Pretoria) for years. Shaaista was hosting a Childline Gala Women’s Day Luncheon on the night of their meeting, and Osman, being his charismatic self, insisted he would assist this worthy cause. This chance experience led to the two becoming fast friends and not to long after, love was in the air. The couple is now happily married and has combined forces to take Shaaista’s business venture, Blu Blood, to new heights.
