Valentine’s Day is around the corner and you may be wondering how you can spend the day with your special someone. Well, take a page out of these Mzansi couples’ love handbook; from the kind of love that has stood the test of time to new romance. You can watch all these love stories on Showmax livestream or binge watch them for a Valentine’s Day love marathon.

Ehostela – The poetic love

When it comes to a love filled with poems and songs, no one does it better than Ehostela’s Mndeni. Things seem to be heating up between him and Sthandwa so it is only a matter of time before she falls head over heels for his way with words.

Tip: Write your lover a beautiful poem or love letter this Valentine’s Day. Stay in and stay safe watching #EhostelaMzansi on Showmax live stream Sundays at 20:00. Or binge watch it together on Showmax where you’ll find all the episodes from season one and two.

The Ranakas – The old school love

If you’re talking about a love that has stood the test of time, you are talking about Ntate and Mma Ranaka’s love. We love to see their young at heart love and passion decades down the line after raising so many children and grandchildren.

Tip: Ntate and Mma Ranaka are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to love and marriage and they would tell you it takes work and understanding. Why not watch #TheRanakas with your love this Thursday at 20:00 on Showmax live stream to see what other life-long love tips you can get from this beautiful couple.

The Queen – The dramatic love

If you’re into a dramatic love, Brutus and Noma are your couple. Whether they are fighting about his trips to “The Butcher” or how she accepted a wedding proposal from Charles, there is never a dull moment.

Tip: If there's one thing this unlikely and passionate pair have shown us, it is forgiveness (and being able to laugh at yourself a little). Tune into #TheQueenMzansi on Showmax live stream every Monday to Friday at 21:00 to share a laugh with this comedic couple.

Gomora – The new love

Who would have thought Zodwa would find love, and with Bongani of all people? Whether you have reservations about this new love, this couple is sure to keep us entertained.

Tip: Zodwa and Bongani are all about following your heart. Follow this new couple to see where their hearts lead them every Monday to Friday at 19:30 on Showmax livestream. We hope it will not end in tears.


Mnakwethu Happily Ever After? – The polygamous love

Valentine’s Day may not be easy when you share your special someone with someone else like in a polygamous marriage. However, MaMthembu and Samantha are showing us that with a little respect and communication, even a polygamous Valentine's Day is possible.

Tip: Remember when Sam invited Qondanisa and MaMthembu to lunch so she could discuss pressing matter with them. Well, why not have a lunch or dinner for all members of the polygamous family and marriage to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Afterwards, you can all tune into #MnakwethuHEA on Showmax livestream Wednesdays at 20:00.
