It takes two to tango in re­la­tion­ships and hot­shot lawyer Fana (Mn­qobi Duma) thinks that he is the only one on the dance­floor with his on-off girl­friend Nol­wazi (Thando Tha­bethe). He only re­alises that some­thing’s up on Wed­nes­day 21 June when Nol­wazi re­fuses to go to cou­ple’s ther­apy and “Fana feels re­jected,” says Mn­qobi. “He doesn’t un­der­stand why she won’t take time off work to fo­cus on their strug­gling ro­mance.” The ac­tor adds that Fana wants to make it work and he steps back to give her time to cool off. “He wants her to think it though and hopes that she will come run­ning into his arms,” says Mn­qobi.


Nol­wazi makes up her mind on Mon­day 26 June and she wants to make it work with Fana. She is still hold­ing onto her feel­ings for her mar­ried ex-fi­ancé Mazwi (Musa Ngema), who is Fana’s brother-in-law, but Mn­qobi ex­plains that “deep down, Nol­wazi knows that she will never come first with Mazwi. She’s in a safe spot with Fana”. He loves her de­spite their ups and downs and takes her back in an in­stant, says the ac­tor. Fana is wrap­ping his arms around her lit­er­ally and fig­u­ra­tively and Mn­qobi says that his char­ac­ter “knows that Nol­wazi isn’t in a good headspace. He par­tially blames him­self for that”. Nol­wazi was kid­napped in March this year and buried alive by Thabiso (Matli Mo­hapeloa). Fana was Thabiso’s lawyer years ear­lier and wasn’t able to keep Thabiso out of prison. Kid­nap­ping Nol­wazi was part of the crim­i­nal’s re­venge plan and Mn­qobi adds, “Nol­wazi hasn’t healed from that. Fana wants to be there for her now”.


Nol­wazi’s med­dling best friend Getty (An­disiwe Dweba) isn’t sold that Nol­wazi is over Mazwi on Wed­nes­day 28 June and she warns Fana about his girl work­ing with her crush. “While Fana trusts Nol­wazi, he can’t help but start think­ing about Getty’s words the next day, on Thurs­day 29 June, when he ac­cepts that Nol­wazi would rather be at her of­fice than at home with him,” says Mn­qobi. What Fana doesn’t know is that Nol­wazi and Mazwi aren’t on the same team in their of­fice at Esweni ad­ver­tis­ing agency. They are ar­gu­ing about the lit­tlest things but “Fana only knows that Nol­wazi is with his brother-in-law and not him,” hints Mn­qobi. “His jeal­ousy takes over.”


Think­ing that he’s no longer Nol­wazi’s pri­or­ity, Fana dumps her on Mon­day 3 July af­ter a heart-to-heart. “What he wants is for her to fight for him,” Mn­qobi ex­plains. “He wants her to win back his heart the same way that he’s tried to win her back.” And it seems that his re­verse psy­chol­ogy may have worked a day later, on Tues­day 4 July, when he gets an in­vi­ta­tion for a date at the Three Tower Ho­tel.

Mazwi is still a blip on Nol­wazi’s radar. Fana wants to be the only guy in Nol­wazi’s life and he’s will­ing to spend big to get his way.
