Mzi (Jesse Sun­tele) is on the hunt for the mys­tery woman he danced with at singer Reneilwe’s (Amo Chidi) mas­quer­ade party on Thurs­day 24 May. While Pearl (Petronella Tshuma) re­vealed her face to him, he was in­ter­rupted by a fire alarm and “they went their sep­a­rate ways. Mzi is dis­ap­pointed that he didn’t in­tro­duce him­self,” ex­plains Jesse. But Mzi is bark­ing up the wrong tree – his dad Suffo (Mduduzi Mabaso) had a fling with Pearl but broke up be­cause her dad is Suffo’s sworn en­emy David (Jamie Bartlett). “Their ri­valry goes be­yond Pearl,” warns Jesse. The men have com­pet­ing clubs and Suffo is a part­ner in David’s club Zero11, where they never agree on any­thing. “Mzi should run but he’s so smit­ten with this woman that he’d rather forge peace be­tween their fa­thers than miss out at his chance on love,” adds Mzi.


They keep miss­ing each other by sec­onds un­til Thurs­day 31 May when Mzi goes out for drinks with Sa­belo (Ish­mauel Songo) to for­get about Pearl. “He spots her talk­ing to Bash (Siphiwe Mtshali) at Zero11. Mzi goes over and in the end, in­tro­duces him­self,” says Jesse. “He tells her about the party and that he res­cued her on the side of the road af­ter her kid­nap­ping [in early May]”. Pearl has been search­ing for her res­cuer to thank him “and they make plans for a date. But first, Mzi wants to get Suffo and David mak­ing peace,” laughs Jesse ner­vously.


With no time to spare, Mzi or­gan­ises a meet­ing be­tween the two hard­men on Fri­day 1 June and he’s got an idea. Mzi con­vinces Suffo to sell his Zero11 shares to David, but no sur­prises here: the meet­ing goes pear-shaped. “Suffo and David quar­rel about ev­ery­thing. They end the meet­ing on a sour note but that doesn’t mean that Mzi is go­ing to stop his mis­sion to get them to get along,” re­veals Jesse.

Mzi spots Pearl chat­ting to Bash af­ter search for her for weeks.

Mzi’s peace-talks end with fin­gers be­ing pointed.
