02 December 2022
There is no good drama without the bad guys.

A villain's sole purpose is to create conflict and undermine the good guy's efforts to achieve their goal. Villains fall into three categories:

  1. Evil villains: They are driven by anger, greed, and hatred
  2. Flawed villains: They are driven by a character flaw
  3. Impetus villains: When either of the evil or flawed villains becomes weak, the story is driven by the impetus villain.

There are plenty of villains on our favourite Maisha Magic East shows. Here are a few that stood out this year:

Zulfa – Pete

Originally, she was an ordinary mermaid who longed to become the queen one day. In her capacity as Queen Mermaid, she had the right to wear the ring and give instructions to other mermaids. In the wake of the queen's death, the mermaids wanted to crown Safira as the new queen. Her interest in Jasiri, a human being, caused her to decline the offer. After Raziya took the ring from the humans, she was next in line to be crowned queen. It was Zulfa, however, who killed her, took the ring, and ruled over the others.

Rhino – Kina

His current status on Kina is "most wanted" because he is a hardcore criminal. He is currently planning a heist along with Lefti, Smalls and Onyi. Prior to this, he manipulated Smalls and Onyi to help him escape from jail. When they tried to snitch on him to the police, he threatened to kill them.
