Com­ing clean

Preg­nant Aza­nia threat­ens to drop her hubby Chris when he re­fuses to ditch his painkiller ad­dic­tion.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - BROKEN VOWS -

When it comes to the finer de­tails, wed­ding plan­ner Aza­nia (Enhle Ma­phu­mulo) is al­ways on top of her game. But it’s a dif­fer­ent story with her ex-soc­cer star hubby Chris (Emmanuel Castis). He’s used painkillers since suf­fer­ing a ca­reer- end­ing in­jury, but un­til his be­hav­iour stands out on Wed­nes­day 26 April, Aza­nia’s been obliv­i­ous to how many pills he’s pop­ping. “She is be­yond up­set. Aza­nia prides her­self on her high morals and can’t be­lieve that Chris is putting their mar­riage on line be­fore their child is born,” ex­plains Enhle. Aza­nia gives her hubby an ul­ti­ma­tum on Thurs­day 27 April: kick his habit or be kicked to the curb. “Chris has to get clean or he will lose ev­ery­thing he’s ever wanted.”


Aza­nia wants her hubby to go to re­hab on Tues­day 2 May but he’s re­fus­ing to budge. “His stub­born­ness is driv­ing her in­sane!” says Enhle, whose char­ac­ter wants to bring their child into a lov­ing and car­ing and safe home. She doesn’t want her new baby raised like she was – she wants Chris to be a re­spon­si­ble fa­ther fig­ure and not shady like her fa­ther Ace (Sello Se­bot­sane), who was in prison through­out her child­hood. Enhle adds that if she was in this sit­u­a­tion with her DJ hubby Black Cof­fee, she’d do the same as Aza­nia. “Mar­riage is a big com­mit­ment and it’s about help­ing each other – I’d stand by his side and help.” Aza­nia puts her foot down on Wed­nes­day 3 May and re­alises that “this has to work and Chris needs to fall in line or else.”


“Chris has al­ways wanted to be a fa­ther and he’s ex­cited about the preg­nancy,” says Enhle, “but Aza­nia’s threats fall on deaf ears” and he digs his heels in on Tues­day 9 May. Aza­nia’s well aware that she needs to put their baby first and “this dif­fi­cult po­si­tion isn’t help­ing. She loves Chris and she’s will­ing to be cruel to be kind. She will take away his dad dreams if that will make him a bet­ter fa­ther in the end”.

Aza­nia’s fed up with her hubby’s habit. Chris isn’t lis­ten­ing to his wife.

Dodgy dad Ace.
