When it comes to love, Nosipho’s (Nom­pilo Ma­phu­mulo) had more than her share of bad ro­mance. She’s try­ing to rekin­dle her re­la­tion­ship with good-guy cop Mondli (Them­binkosi Th­wala) on Thurs­day 8 June but “he keeps avoid­ing her and drag­ging his feet. Nosipho is in a good place at the mo­ment and she wants a fresh start,” ex­plains Nom­pilo. Be­ing re­jected sees Nosi pack­ing her bags and mov­ing out for good on Fri­day 9 June. “This girl is ready to start over and live a hap­pier life – and on her own.”

WHO’S THAT GIRL?

Nosipho isn’t sin­gle for long though and she catches the at­ten­tion of new cop Qha­banga (Siyabonga Shibe) on Mon­day 12 June while she’s walk­ing back from the spaza shop. “A fancy car stops right in front of her and a hot guy steps out,” says Nom­pilo, but her char­ac­ter isn’t in­ter­ested in get­ting in­volved with any­one af­ter her over­whelm­ing break-up. “Nosi tells him to get lost but Qha­banga keeps in­sist­ing on tak­ing her out on a date,” says Nom­pilo. And it’s a sur­prise when Nosipho runs into him on Tues­day 13 June at the she­sanyama that she wait­resses at. “It’s no co­in­ci­dence! He’s planned ev­ery­thing and he leaves his num­ber and writes ‘call me’ on his bill, which spells out ‘I like you’,” ex­plains Nom­pilo.

TAKE ME OUT

It takes two days of bug­ging but Nosi gives in and ac­cepts Qha­banga’s of­fer of a date night on Wednesday 14 June. “She has the time of her life,” says the ac­tress. It’s been a while since Nosipho let her hair down af­ter she got into an emo­tion­ally abu­sive re­la­tion­ship with dodgy Amos (Ernest Msibi) who pimped her out in March 2017. Nosipho doesn’t want to rush into any­thing se­ri­ous at the mo­ment and “she doesn’t want Qha­banga to know that she was a pros­ti­tute as she’s scared that it will ruin their ro­mance, like it did with Mondli,” says the ac­tress.

Nosi en­joys Qha­banga’s com­pany and they ac­tu­ally have great chem­istry to­gether. They’re smit­ten with each other by the time that Nosipho’s mom MaNg­cobo’s (Dawn Than­deka King) wed­ding ar­rives on Fri­day 16 June and they go as a cou­ple. “Nosipho doesn’t want to let her past get in the way of her fu­ture. There’s al­ways light at the end of the tun­nel and hope­fully this guy is a trustworthy,” teases Nom­pilo.

Nosipho has a blast with her new squeeze.

Mondli’s lost his chance.
