The Wife

Inspired by Dudu Busani-Dube’s beloved novels, the telenovela is centred around the Zulu brothers and their love interests. While the first season followed middle sibling, Mqhele and investigative journalist Hlomu’s romance, Season 2 took viewers into eldest brother, Nkosana’s marriage to ex-convict, Zandile. Season 3 focuses on middle brother, Qhawe’s complicated relationship with Dr Naledi.

The Wife is based on Dudu Busani-Dube’s bestselling novels Hlomu the Wife, Zandile the Resolute, and Naledi His Love, which follow the lives of the eight Zulu brothers, a formidable crime family, through the eyes of the wives they marry. The 120-episode season will be split evenly between the three books, with the first 40 episodes focusing on Hlomu, a journalist who falls in love with a taxi driver, not knowing he’s behind the cash in transit heists she’s investigating.
