It's been a long, hard road for Nandi. She's been uprooted from one home to the next only to have to pack up and start all over again. She's been rejected by the man she loved and called a liar. But she never let it defeat her nor did she allow it to stop Shaka from fulfilling his destiny.
And Shaka is not letting her down. The cub has stumbled along the way but he's coming into his own now.
He's training hard ...
... dominating training sessions ...
and even taking on the fearsome Lembe.
Shaka is not taking his mother's love and sacrifices for granted. The latest episode saw him make an almighty oath to her and given how determined he is, we're sure he will fulfill it in this tale, and history tells us the same.
It's even inspiring fans.
What do you think of Nandi and Shaka's relationship?
