The dream is over
A baby and a pimp destroy Sibahle’s beautiful new life.
Sibahle’s world crashes down when she overhears something not meant for her ears. Mon-Wed SABC1 (*191) 20:30
In the space of just one short day, Sibahle’s (Londeka Mlaba) world falls apart. “It’s almost like a beautiful dream – the life that she has lived with Ayanda (Kay Sibiya),” says Londeka. “But there’s a nightmare at the end. The dream is over and Sibahle wakes up. She realises that she doesn’t deserve to be happy.” And that’s all thanks to Smangele (Sihle Ndaba) and her secret plus- one, as well as a terrifying face from Sibahle’s past…
On Tuesday 13 September, Sibahle, who’s innocently getting ready to go on a romantic getaway with Ayanda, tiptoes into his house to surprise him, only to end up with a nasty surprise herself. “She comes sneaking in and overhears Ayanda and Zandile (Leleti Khumalo) talking about the whole pregnancy with Sma [which is revealed when Sma takes a pregnancy test on Wednesday 31 August],” says Londeka. “Of course, it is very shocking. Even her father (Don Mlangeni Nawa) is convinced that everything is fine and he’s given his blessing for Sibahle and Ayanda to move forth [on Tuesday 6 September]. She can’t believe what she overhears. She feels like she can’t have true love and she doesn’t deserve true love.”
PIMP FROM THE PAST
That exact fear is confirmed later on when Sibahle runs straight from one hell into another, because the next person she sees is Amos (Ernest Msibi), the pimp she left behind in Joburg before coming to KwaMashu in May this year. “It’s like a double mountain coming down on her,” says Londeka. “It all comes back to her in a matter of seconds. She knows he has a gun and she can’t escape. And aside from that, she’s frightened. He’s the scariest, most dangerous gangster. He abused her and he used force to make her do things, so it makes her weak in the knees when she sees him.”
