Sthe and Bongi (Senzokuhle Radebe and Nqobile Ndlovu) met at the start of June 2017 when they took part in a slogan contest at their company MMC Construction. Sthe is the PA for CEO KK (MacDonald Ndou) and Bongi is the company receptionist and they didn’t like each other from the word go. They both wanted the cash prize that would change their lives and while Sthe took home a pocket full of cash as the winner in mid-June, he’d rather have gone home with his pretty rival on his arm instead, hints Senzo.
Sthe hasn’t given up hope of winning over Bongi though and on Wednesday 21 June, “Sthe makes sure that he looks like a million bucks – and good enough for her,” says Senzo. “He’s hit the gym and buffs up a bit. And then he does something crazy: he buys a fancy BMW to make her think that he is cool.” Sthe is a township boy and he had nothing when he was growing up, explains the actor. “Sthe vowed to be a hustler when he was older and make something of himself. Now he has the chance to do that and the girl of his dreams is around the corner!”
While his friends may think that he’s going overboard, Sthe’s efforts hit the bullseye when Bongi sees him and she gladly accepts his dinner- date invite on Monday 26 June. It’s not at a fancy restaurant though – it’s at a family friend’s wedding on that same night but the pair are just happy to be with each other. As Senzo explains, “Sthe is excited that everything is working out for him. He had a huge crush on his college friend Busi (Bontle Sithole) but things never work out between the two of them. Now is his chance to have a girlfriend and he really likes Bongi.” On Tuesday 27 June, Sthe wants to make things official with Bongi and tries to give her a peck on the cheek but his innocent kiss lands him in trouble…
Senzo reveals that “Nonny (Phindile Gwala), the former MMC secretary sees them kissing and she loses her cool. She’s strictly against any office romance and makes sure that the pair understand that they could lose their job over this.” On Wednesday 28 June, Sthe realises that Bongi doesn’t want to lose her job and would rather let go of any relationship with him. That makes Nonny public enemy number one for Sthe and he won’t let this slide!
Bongi likes what she sees in Sthe. Sthe wins and loses everything with a kiss.
