Lov­ing two women is driv­ing Sakhile (Solomon Se­both­oma) in­sane as sea­son 1 of Mina Nawe (2017-cur­rent) draws to a close. He’s moved back home with his med­dling mom Lizzie (Thuli Mon­ica Zulu) on Sun­day 23 July to fig­ure out his next move, but “Sakhile is crazy con­fused,” laughs Solomon. He’s stuck be­tween los­ing his happy fam­ily with Di­neo (Sibu­sisiwe Jili) and get­ting to date his high school sweet­heart and feisty mis­tress Funeka (Tango Ncetezo). “He has built a sta­ble home with Di­neo but Funeka is the love of his life. Sakhile wants the chance to ex­plore that,” ex­plains Solomon.


But Sakhile’s de­ci­sion gets harder when he learns that Funeka may skip town for good. He sweet-talks her in the hopes that she’ll stay and ex­plore the ro­mance that they’ve al­ways dreamt about. “It’s a lot harder than he thought,” laughs Solomon. “Funeka is un­pre­dictable and Sakhile is des­per­ate for the chance to prove how he feels de­spite the fact that he as a wife at home…”


By Sun­day 30 July, Di­neo is tired of wait­ing for her delin­quent hubby and her rage ig­nites when her mother-in­law Lizzie sug­gests that she “just be pa­tient”. Al­though Sakhile mar­ried Di­neo, Funeka’s al­ways been his first choice, ex­plains Solomon. “Funeka left for the city to work [af­ter high school] and Di­neo was preg­nant. They want to pick up where they left off when they were young.” But there’s some­thing else that Sakhile hasn’t taken into ac­count: Funeka now isn’t the Funeka he fell for. “She is a 21st-cen­tury woman,” jokes Solomon. “Un­like Di­neo, Funeka does not like walk­ing around bare­foot in the kitchen. She does not like to take the back­seat – ever. Sakhile slowly re­alises that he misses his sim­pler life back home,” says Solomon. So now he has his cake and can eat it, “But he’s un­sure of where he stands,” adds the ac­tor. “Things will be­come clear, but there will be a lot of drama first!”

Di­neo has lost her hubby Sakhile to an­other woman… …but Sakhile may not want Funeka af­ter all.
