Club owner Suf­fo­cate (Mduduzi Mabaso) is on a mis­sion to cleanse his life. He’s had a run of bad luck and it’s mostly to do with his wives Niki and Pu­leng (Nolo Phiri and Te­bogo Khalo) and his brother Themba (Sphamandla Dhlu-dhlu). May took the most toll with Themba kid­nap­ping preg­nant Pu­leng, then van­ish­ing into thin air. So on Fri­day 26 May, Suffo vis­its his friendly neigh­bour­hood san­goma (Tha­bang Ma­jola).


“The san­goma tells Suffo to find his new­born baby,” says Mduduzi, but the only new­born that he knows of right now is Pu­leng’s – and he’s not the dad. Doc­tors told him last year that a med­i­cal in­com­pat­i­bil­ity with Pu­leng meant that they would never have a child, and since Themba and Pu­leng had an af­fair in mid-2016, the baby must be Themba’s. “Suffo’s con­fused by the san­goma’s advice,” Mduduzi ex­plains, “but the su­per­nat­u­ral ad­vi­sor gives him hope that the baby is his and that there might be a chance to re­unite with his es­tranged true love Pu­leng.”

On Mon­day 29 May, Suffo makes a bee­line for the hos­pi­tal where he had a pa­ter­nity test per­formed in Novem­ber 2016. He never went fetched the re­sults as he was so cer­tain that the baby was Themba’s, “But now this guy wants the truth,” Mduduzi states. The hos­pi­tal con­firms that Suffo is the dad but there is an­other prob­lem. Suffo learns that Niki got them first. She’s been lead­ing Suffo on, hop­ing to tie the knot with him again now that Pu­leng has taken “Themba’s” baby to KwaZulu-Natal for the fam­ily’s nam­ing cer­e­mony. “He re­alises that Niki has lied to him. Suf­fo­cate is an­gry be­cause she knows how im­por­tant a baby is to him and this is be­trayal,” says Mduduzi. “He can­cels his wed­ding to Niki right away.”


With his liar ex out of the way, Suffo’s clear to make amends with his baby­mama. On Thurs­day 1 June he rushes to KwaZulu-Natal and in­ter­rupts the tra­di­tional cer­e­mony. Suffo tells Pu­leng that he wants her back “and she’s stunned,” says Mduduzi. “He left her for Niki, re­mem­ber, so she doesn’t want any­thing to do with him.” Suffo pleads with her again on Fri­day 2 June to give them an­other chance. Mduduzi adds that “for now, his goal is to have a fam­ily with Pu­leng. Get­ting back at Niki can wait a while…”

Sneaky Niki has been caught out. Pu­leng could get her hubby back. Suffo is caught in an even big­ger mess now – but at least he knows he’s a father.
