The other man

Un­happy-in-love Nikiwe cheats on S’khu… with Gabriel!

TV Plus (South Africa) - - ISIDINGO -

Nikiwe seals the deal with her new guy. Week­days SABC3 (*193) 19:00

Nikiwe’s (Linda Sokhulu) been sin­gle for a lit­tle over two weeks af­ter ask­ing restau­rant-boss boyfriend S’khu (Sisa He­wana) for a break from “them” on Thurs­day 18 Au­gust. Now it’s time for her to get into bed with the man she’s fallen for: Hori­zon Deep’s sleazy ex-pas­tor-turned-busi­ness schemer Gabriel (Aubrey Poo).

COME DINE WITH ME

Ten­sion’s been build­ing with the pair’s late-night meet­ings and flirt­ing, and on Fri­day 2 Septem­ber, Gabriel charms Nikiwe into a din­ner date. “Gabriel is an op­por­tunist,” says Aubrey. “He sees Nikiwe as a beau­ti­ful con­quest – it’s a ben­e­fi­cial re­la­tion­ship for him be­cause he gets the girl and she can also fund his ex­trav­a­gant life­style. For Nikiwe, she could lose friends and re­spect…”

DE­CEIT & DRAMA

While Gabriel has his prize right where he wants her on Tues­day 6 Septem­ber, there’s still an on- off boyfriend-shaped prob­lem. “S’khu hates Gabriel be­cause of what he did to S’khu’s younger sis­ter Aphiwe (Khanya Mkangisa) [Gabriel as­saulted her in No­vem­ber 2015] and the men don’t see eye-to-eye,” Aubrey ex­plains. “S’khu’s dis­gusted at the sight of Gabriel and he’s in­ter­ested to know why Gabriel is hang­ing around Nikiwe like a par­a­sitic leech on Wed­nes­day 7 Septem­ber.” S’khu’s wary of Gabriel but Nikiwe re­as­sures him later that day that they only have a work re­la­tion­ship. But S’khu should’ve lis­tened to his gut…

HO­TEL HOOK-UP

Nikiwe builds up the courage on Thurs­day 8 Septem­ber and she leads her new love in­ter­est to the be­d­room of her suite at The Dun­can ho­tel. While they do have sex, Aubrey says that “Nikiwe is sober and she sees Gabriel in a very dif­fer­ent light. She’s in­trigued by him and his world, but she has to choose be­tween Gabriel and S’khu”. But while Nikiwe can hide her ren­dezvous from her boyfriend, her dad Lin­coln (Lin­dani Nkosi) no­tices the change in her re­la­tion­ship with Gabriel on Mon­day 12 Septem­ber dur­ing a Sibeko meet­ing.

Lin­coln puts his foot down and gives Gabriel a warn­ing to stay away. Adds Aubrey, “Lin­coln is a de­vi­ous char­ac­ter be­cause he knows that Gabriel has info about ev­ery­one in The Deep from his days as a pas­tor and that can be used to Lin­coln’s ad­van­tage. Lin­coln isn’t happy about Nikiwe and Gabriel, but does Gabriel care? He doesn’t be­cause he’s self­ish and self-serv­ing!”
