Former friends Aphiwe and Kamohelo fight over Obakeng.
He’s a troublemaker at work, with constant temper tantrums, ignoring mine protocols and searching for diamonds without anyone else knowing. And now newcomer Obakeng (Anga Makubalo) is coming between pals Aphiwe and Kamohelo (Khanya Mkangisa and Makgotso M). While he isn’t intentionally causing drama, Obakeng is the object of desire and says Anga, “He’s oblivious to the girls’ fights over him. At the moment, those things are petty for him because he has other things on his mind…”
MARK YOUR TERRITORY
On Thursday 7 July, Kamo makes her move on Obakeng, frustrating Aphiwe who then makes her move on Friday 8 July, which in turn annoys Kamo. “Obakeng’s never been in a serious relationship but things are different with Aphiwe,” says Anga. “He doesn’t know how to act around her and he doesn’t know how to handle her, but he’s glad that she made the first move.” Aphiwe decides on Monday 11 July that the girls need to stop letting Obakeng come between them and suggests to Kamo that they put their differences aside, but Kamo is being played for a fool – she has no idea that she’s already lost the fight for the hot new miner.
FALLING FOR YOU
Aphiwe and her new man get to know each other on Wednesday 13 July and have a chat about Obakeng’s past – he hasn’t opened up to anyone about his troubled history before and Aphiwe is the first to hear his intense stories. “He lacks morals but Obakeng tries to keep things polite with Aphiwe and be honest with her,” Anga says. The next day, on Thursday 14 July, Kamo spots the couple and realising that she’s been tricked, she plots her payback…
Kamo gets flirty with off-the-market Obakeng on Friday 15 July and Anga reveals that “Obakeng doesn’t want to be with Kamohelo. He doesn’t like her because she is a younger girl, but she knows how to flirt with him and get his attention. He tells her that he can’t be with her and that he likes Aphiwe, but Kamo doesn’t stop trying”. Anga adds that Kamo causes more trouble by telling Obakeng that Aphiwe still has feelings for her ex-boyfriend Calvin (Maurice Paige) and that Obakeng is “just the rebound”. Aphiwe spots her man with Kamo on Monday 18 July and the battle lines are drawn, not that Obakeng’s aware of what’s coming…
