Nolwazi (Thando Thabethe) is a woman scorned. Not only has she just found out that her fiancé Mazwi (Musa Ngema) is engaged to another woman, but thanks to Nolwazi’s job as Ezweni’s publicist, she has no choice but to help them announce their engagement to the world. Never one to back down easily, she plans to get her own back and turn her heartbreak into revenge on the guy who promised her his heart and a lifetime of happiness. “She is beyond broken,” says Thando. “She believed that this was her ‘happily ever after’, which is why Nolwazi seeks revenge after being taken for a ride.”
THE TRUTH EXPOSED
On Thursday 7 July, Nolwazi is ready to put a stop to Mazwi’s happy new life with his bride-to-be Sphe (Pearl Manama) by exposing the real story behind the couple’s romance: that their marriage has been arranged by their families. “She wants everyone to know that they aren’t the real deal, probably a reaffirmation for herself that she truly is his only love,” Thando reveals. And, of course, the press has a field day – a small consolation for a brokenhearted Nolwazi. Meanwhile, the Morokas are up in arms and the family summon Mazwi to do serious damage control while his ex sits back and enjoys watching him squirm.
What Nolwazi doesn’t expect is for her rival to save the day by showing the world that she and Mazwi are really in love and aren’t just doing it for show (even though they are!). Sphe’s idea is a romantic pre-wedding photoshoot on Monday 11 July. And if that’s not enough to get Nolwazi to hate the Nolwazi’s rage at her ex-fiancé Mazwi is clear to see. woman who stole her man’s heart and her place at the altar, Sphe plays nice with her fiancé’s ex. “Sphe tries to build a ‘friendship’ with her but Nolwazi is definitely not interested,” says Thando. Not that we blame her…
CHANGE OF MIND
And it’s not just Sphe that Nolwazi isn’t getting along with as she and Mazwi still have to work together at Ezweni and things get ugly between them on Wednesday 13 July. “Nolwazi can’t stand him now,” says Thando. “She even has a hard time keeping a civil working relationship with him.” Her revenge plan may not have worked, but it turns out that Mazwi may not get the happy ending he’d hoped for with Sphe when, on Thursday 14 July, Sphe starts having doubts about the family that she’s marrying into. It looks like karma may be catching up with Mazwi, but what does this mean for his future with Nolwazi?
