In July 2017 they pulled a stunt by posting photos of their engagement and thereafter photos of their traditional wedding and white wedding surfaced. They later revealed that all the snaps were to promote a new music video the song I Do by musician LaSauce.

In an instagram post Modiselle posted

“More than genuinely loving the song, we loved being the representation of what it advocates – a young, black love that have the intention of solidifying their lifetime commitment to each other, represented here as marriage. We understood the implications of deciding on how to best go about making the greatest impact in encouraging a conversation of love, something that doesn’t make the headlines, and so we were bold in our approach.Everything that we posted were all images leading up to the video, we just hadn’t announced that yet. Those who know us personally, who were all notified and prepared prior to the video dropping, know that we are not the type of folk to let out the details of our personal lives like that. People know of us being together but do not know anything beyond that, particularly the state of our relationship. That privacy remains true for our engagement and marriage which will remain our private matter. Those who need to know, will know.”
