There’s never been love for Mazwi and Sphe (Musa Ngema and Pearl Monama). Their 2016 mar­riage was to strengthen busi­ness bonds be­tween their fam­i­lies and they’ve been es­tranged for most of that time any­way. “If they were in pub­lic, they would put on a show with some lov­ing touches,” says Musa. The only time that they were in the same bed was in late 2016 when they were try­ing to fall preg­nant, but that changes on Tues­day 29 May when Mazwi kisses his wife “out of the blue and like a real hus­band should,” laughs the ac­tor, “but it also con­fuses Sphe.” She’s hoped that they could be a real fam­ily for lit­tle Rorisang (Lethokuhle Jiyane), who is ac­tu­ally Mazwi’s brother Smanga’s (Moopi Moth­ibeli) daugh­ter be­cause Mazwi is in­fer­tile. “Sphe isn’t sure what to ex­pect from Mazwi. One minute he’s hot, the next he’s cold. He tells Sphe that he wants to make things work and the of­fer of a re­newal and a fresh start bowls her over,” adds Musa.

FOR BET­TER OR WORSE

A huge part of their silent split was Mazwi’s love for sidechicks. For most of 2017, he pre­ferred the com­pany of Nol­wazi (Thando Tha­bethe) and he’s been see­ing Naledi (An­gela Sithole) since Jan­uary 2018. But it seems that Mazwi is ready to ditch his dessert for a sec­ond help­ing of his main course on Wed­nes­day 30 May. “Sphe asks him what the kiss was about. Mazwi tells her straight that he’s fall­ing for her,” says Musa. This change has been in­flu­enced by Sphe hav­ing a gun to her head in the hos­pi­tal hostage drama in April. “It hit him that he could lose an in­tel­li­gent, beau­ti­ful woman, the mother of his child,” says Musa with a smirk, re­mind­ing view­ers that Mazwi is still clue­less to Rorisang’s pa­ter­nity.

FLAWED FOUN­DA­TIONS

There’s no sign of their bad ro­mance, ex­plains Musa. “They are like smit­ten teens and it re­minds Sphe of her fling with bad-boy Gadaffi (Vuyo Dab­ula) in Jan­uary.” That “easy” re­la­tion­ship was the kind of love Sphe had been want­ing, un­forced and nat­u­ral. But that could be a prob­lem, hints Musa, be­cause while the “new” love-birds are fin­ish­ing each other’s sen­tences by Tues­day 5 June, se­crets have a habit of pop­ping up and hyp­ocrite Mazwi hates be­ing am­bushed…

Will Sphe get a “real” fa­ther for her daugh­ter Rorisang? Mazwi tells Sphe that he wants to fix their mar­riage.
