NB! Ndamulelo Mbuwe, who plays Mu­londo, is only 14 years old and Mu­vhango pre­ferred for cre­ative di­rec­tor Tessa Made to give in­sight into the char­ac­ter’s sto­ry­line.

Mu­londo Muk­w­evho (Ndamulelo Mbuwe) is fol­low­ing in his la­dylov­ing dad Chief Azwin­dini’s (Gabriel Te­mudzani) foot­steps on Mon­day 6 March. The young teen de­vel­ops his first real crush but just like with his dad, love won’t be sim­ple. He’s fallen for an older woman and he is go­ing to have drama woo­ing her…

COUGAR

Mu­londo’s “cougar” is 20-some­thing Dee (Ndi­vhuwo Mu­dau), who’s friends with Mu­londo’s new step­mom Mpho (Azwimm­bavhi Ramm­buda). Dee calls her­self a “Ven­dashian” [a play on the Kar­dashi­ans – see p9] – she loves lux­ury, money and fash­ion. Mu­vhango cre­ative di­rec­tor Tessa Made ex­plains that “the sto­ry­line of Mu­londo chas­ing an older woman is meant to be fun and light­hearted and spot­light the younger roy­als”. What fol­lows is a com­edy of er­rors as Mu­londo schemes how to get his girl with­out rais­ing royal ou­trage.

MAK­ING MOVES

Mu­londo sends Dee what his thinks are cute SMSes on Wed­nes­day 8 March. The mes­sages con­tains po­etry and Dee can’t help but won­der who her ad­mirer is, al­though Mu­londo’s to shy to ad­mit that it’s him, so he com­ments that “it’s one of the Muk­w­evhos”. Tessa adds that “Dee gets ex­cited and thinks it’s from an older Muk­w­evho and she asks if they can meet up later”.

IT’S A DATE

Mu­londo con­tin­ues his anony­mous flirt­ing and SMS-asks her out on Fri­day 10 March. “It’s sweet be­cause he is so ex­cited but he knows that if the royal court finds out, he’ll be in trou­ble. This type of love won’t be ap­proved of,” says Tessa. De­spite his hor­mones be­ing out of con­trol, Mu­londo con­sid­ers do­ing “the right thing” and com­ing clean to Dee on Mon­day 13 March, but then he re­mem­bers how pretty she is and he holds back. In the mean­time, the young royal gets a part time job to save up for his date and buy his lovein­ter­est cute trin­kets. If only he knew that his ef­forts will be in vain.

Mu­londo sets his sights on older woman Dee. “Prince M” – which Muk­w­evho could it be?
