Be­tween the sheets

Af­ter all the bro­ken re­la­tion­ships that Nikiwe’s been through, has she fi­nally found her happy end­ing with S’khu?

TV Plus (South Africa) - - ISIDINGO -

When Nikiwe (Linda Sokhulu) needed a shoul­der to cry on af­ter her re­cent emo­tional break­down, S’khu (Sisa Hewana) was there. And now the friend­ship be­tween Hori­zon Deep’s no­to­ri­ous wom­an­iser and the feisty busi­ness­woman is be­com­ing a re­la­tion­ship as they fall head over heels for each other. Says Linda, “S’khu makes her feel lighter in the sense that she is more free and fun.” But Lin­coln (Lin­dani Nkosi) dis­ap­proves – and he isn’t the only one chal­leng­ing the new couple.

DEEP LOVE

They make it of­fi­cial on Wed­nes­day 9 De­cem­ber by sleep­ing to­gether and says Linda, “It’s not a once-off. They’re in a sort-of re­la­tion­ship and it de­vel­ops in the midst of chaos in Nikiwe’s life. Feel­ings start to ma­te­ri­alise and they find them­selves in each other’s arms”. But things aren’t all lovey dovey the next morn­ing when Nikiwe feels un­easy around S’khu. “They do find it awk­ward but they man­age to nav­i­gate around it quite well. Like any re­la­tion­ship, they do have chal­lenges,” says Linda.

DADDY’S DIS­AP­PROVAL

A chal­lenge like her dad! On Wed­nes­day 16 De­cem­ber, Lin­coln finds out about his daugh­ter’s romp with S’khu and in­sists that Nikiwe de­serves bet­ter. “They must choose be­tween what they feel for each other or let other peo­ple dic­tate their feel­ings. That’s where Lin­coln comes in, be­cause he has higher stan­dards for his daugh­ter,” Linda says. On top of that, Thurs­day 17 De­cem­ber sees S’khu get­ting caught in the cross­fire be­tween a feud­ing Nikiwe and Sa­man­tha (Za­keeya Pa­tel). The ladies are fight­ing over work when they share dif­fer­ent opin­ions about a cam­paign that Nikiwe’s work­ing on, says Linda. “There are sev­eral in­stances where Sa­man­tha and Nikiwe butt heads – it’s two dif­fer­ent women who’re equally strong in their own rights and S’khu’s caught be­tween them. He must deal with both fight­ing for his at­ten­tion.” But it looks like he chooses right, as he stays in Nikiwe’s good books.

ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE

Nikiwe thinks that it’s time to in­tro­duce S’khu in a proper man­ner to her fam­ily at the Sibeko’s an­nual Christ­mas party. On Tues­day 22 De­cem­ber, she in­vites him to the lunch, which he ac­cepts, but not be­fore a slight hes­i­ta­tion. “Nikiwe knows that this is a spe­cial re­la­tion­ship but this is also a very dif­fer­ent re­la­tion­ship for her be­cause S’khu is younger and she likes his spon­tane­ity,” Linda ex­plains. But can their love con­quer all? For now, it sure does look that way…

S’khu and Nikiwe turn up the heat in their re­la­tion­ship.
