With his taxi busi­ness in the works, wid­ower Kop (Setl­habi Taun­yane) is sud­denly the main man in town and the ladies are knock­ing on his door, try­ing to win his af­fec­tions. And the love ac­tion starts on Fri­day 23 June when Kop’s neigh­bour Cuba (Magi Non­inzi Wil­liams) starts worm­ing her way into his heart and home. “Cuba is gun­ning for him,” laughs Setl­habi. “She has been at­tracted to him for a while, but it’s dif­fer­ent now and she won’t let him slip through her hands.” Kop’s friends chased her off when she came call­ing in March this year, but Cuba isn’t giv­ing up. “She thinks that Kop is lonely [like her] and she wants him to start over… with her by his side,” ex­plains Setl­habi.

LOVE ON THE BRAIN

Cuba hasn’t come alone though – she’s

brought back-up on Tues­day 27 June in the form of her best friend Blos­som (Slindile No­dandla). “Cuba talks her into help­ing clean Kop’s house, cook for him and even write him po­ems,” says Setl­habi. But Blos­som has a light­bulb mo­ment: why help her bestie find a man to care for her when she can take Kop her­self?

Blos­som isn’t like Cuba – she isn’t go­ing to try change Kop and mould him into Alexan­dra Town­ship’s most el­i­gi­ble taxi owner. In­stead, “She is go­ing to let him be who he is,” ex­plains Setl­habi. “Don’t for­get: Kop is a good per­son. He’s a car­ing guy and Blos­som sees that and she wants to take care of him too.” The women are war­ring with each other to re­place Kop’s late wife Mamokete (Con­nie Chi­ume), who died in April 2016. “They’re risk­ing their friend­ship over Kop. Cuba will do any­thing to win his heart and Blos­som will too, sur­pris­ingly,” ex­plains Setl­habi.

WAR PATH

Cuba ques­tions Blos­som’s jumpy be­hav­iour around Kop on Wed­nes­day 28 June but Blos­som plays dumb, deny­ing Cuba’s ac­cu­sa­tions. “Cuba is jeal­ous of the bond that Blos­som shares with Kop. She doesn’t take well to re­jec­tion and goes crazy when she re­alises that she might lose Kop,” says Setl­habi. Cuba has been ad­vis­ing Kop with his busi­ness de­ci­sions and she be­lieves that with­out her knowl­edge, he wouldn’t be where he is. “But she’s too for­ward for Kop. She throws her weight around and it’s too much for him,” says Setl­habi. Plus, he isn’t fo­cused on rush­ing into a ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ship – he is con­cerned with his su­per­star singer niece Reneilwe (Amo Chidi) who’s been avoid­ing him while pro­mot­ing her new al­bum. “It’s a new phase in Kop’s life and he isn’t used to hav­ing all this at­ten­tion from women. For now, he wants to make things work with Renei more than any­thing else,” says Setl­habi.

Kop’s go­ing to a be a busy man with all the ladies af­ter his heart.

Cuba has her sights firmly on Kop.

Blos­som is also in­ter­ested in Kop.
