Isithembiso Its complicated

21 July 2017
From the 'friendzone' to the curb, to an entire marriage kept a secret, love seems a losing game in J'o-hazardous-burg'!

If the hustle and bustle is anything to go by Joburg can certainly sell you dreams. There is often a grey area between people achieving their dreams and being either caught in flights of fancy or stuck in limbo. Similarly, achieving one’s crush is not always promised.

Remember Simi and Zamani? Remember their innocent love that we were so sure would’ve blossomed by now? Remember they were our ‘ships’ and gave us hope that young love would win? Well, it appears a lot has happened since those days.

Lucky for Zamani after landing a fancy job as a barman at the club, his new boss Vivian started paying him the kind of attention Simi wasn’t. The bold and beautiful Vivian has disarmed him with her low-key seductions, providing him with the perfect distraction from the his inglorious status in the ‘friendzone’.

The bomb was dropped when a mysterious man dropped by her dorm and announced to her roommates Simi and Sne, that he was indeed her fiancé.

What could Anathi be hiding? Is she who she says she is?
