Usually, women shriek in excitement after they see these gentlemen they are absolutely enamored with. Therefore, if you ever needed some motivation to watch The Wife, we’ll provide it. There are many eye-candy men in the show, including Kwenzo Ngcobo, Sipho Ndlovu, Abdul Khoza, and Mondli Ngcobo. A picture of Kwenzo, Mondi, Abdul, and other KZN-born actors Thembinkosi Mthembu and Thobani Nzuza photographed together has gone viral on social media, leaving ladies in awe.

Ladies can’t get enough of the hot Zulu actors. It is no secret that KZN has some of the most beautiful men in the industry. These actors are hot property and no wonder ladies have heart palpitations whenever they see them.

Inspired by Dudu Busani-Dube’s bestseller Hlomu The Wife, the 40-episode first season tells the story of a journalist (Mbalenhle Mavimbela from Skeem Saam) who falls in love with a taxi driver, Mqhele (Bonko Khoza from Neckie Youth), not realising that when you marry a man, you marry his secrets.

The show is the eighth South African Showmax Original released in 2021, following on from record breakers like the true-crime phenomenon Devilsdorp and Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha’s reality show, Uthando Lodumo, as well as critically acclaimed scripted series like DAM, Skemerdans and Tali’s Baby Diary and ever-popular reality series like Temptation Island South Africa S1 and Life With Kelly Khumalo S2.

Speaking about how the film was going to be different from the book the writer of the book Dudu Busani-Dube said “It’s going to be very different. When somebody reads a book, it’s going to be their imagination. But when it comes to something visual, it’s actually not easy to adapt it as it is.

There are going to be new things and new people that are introduced by the film part of it and things that are going to be left out from the books. This is a telenovela that is inspired by the books, so it changes. It changes a lot.

The series stars the Zulu brothers: Kwenzo Ngcobo (Imbewu) as Qhawe; Sipho Ndlovu (Isibaya, The Queen) as Sambulo; SAFTA winner Abdul Khoza (Isibaya, Kings of Joburg) as Nqoba; Mondli Makhoba (Umkhokha, Generations, Imbewu) as Nkosana; SAFTA nominee Thulane Nkululeko Shange (Is’thunzi, iNumber Number) as Mqoqi; Ishmauel Songo (Rhythm City, Tsotsi) as Mpande; and Swelihle Luthuli (eHostela) as Ntsika.

The Wife is being produced by Stained Glass, who’ve created SAFTA-winning shows like eHostela and Ifalakhe as well as Uzalo, South Africa’s most-watched soap opera. Showmax has commissioned three seasons of 40 episodes each.
