And just like that, she loses everything. Mguyo’s wife Nosmilo (Zama Ngcobo) kicks Zoleka out of “her” husband’s mansion. With no job and a mouth to feed, Zoleka becomes an adult content creator. Before she knows it, she goes down a dark and dangerous path.

The show follows boisterous and quick-witted co-hosts Lillian Dube and Moshe Ndiki as they visit two teams who cook their best Sunday meal, and the winners receive a cash prize. While the teams reveal their competitive streak and cooking skills, the co-hosts offer their critique and hilarious comments.
