City girl Sandra tells us about her unforgettable traditional Zulu Wedding.
Fiesty, choreographer Lungile (27) will do a lot to avoid falling in love. Even more to avoid going home to South Africa, where she's traditionally engaged to a king. However, when she meets her soulmate Tex she has to face her complicated past.
"Fiercely unobtainable love interest."
LUNGILE SABATA (27) also known as LOU, is a beautiful, stubbornly independent and driven dancer/choreographer who's making it in New York.
DARRIN DEWITT HENSON
"To see him is to go weak at the knees."
TEX WILSON (32) is a disillusioned advertising executive looking for something, and someone, to believe in. He's a good-looking charmer with largely untapped depths.
"A royally good catch."
PRINCE ZWELIBANZI ZULU, 28, called ZEE by people who know him, is sauve, good-looking and has the air of authority bred into those born for leadership positions.
CARL ANTHONY PAYNE
"He's 'that' friend."
NATE (33) is a wise-cracking, sharp-faced lawyer who'd take the fin off a shark - in business. In his personal life, he's Tex's loyal best friend, who'd go to the ends of the earth for him
"The cop that doesn't stop. Be very afraid."
MABO (24), is Lou's younger sister. She's attitude on steroids with a massive, quivering weave-fro hairstyle topping off the Metro traffic cop's uniform she ALWAYS wears – even when going out.
"That's uncle to you, boy!"
UNCLE PHINEAS SABATA (60), dresses in a mixture of Westend and traditional Sotho attire. He carries the air of the Lesotho mountains with him – along with his cone hat and Basotho blanket.
"Life is about dancing and love"
LASHANDRA, 26, is an exquisitely-muscled and committed contemporary dancer who Lou works with when choreographing her dances. Lashandra is also a good friend to Lou and has learned to accept her quirks and ways.
"Darling, life's too short for bad champagne"
SAM (28) is a super-stylish, plastic-surgery addicted drinker. One of Lou's best friends from school. She comes from a wealthy family but nonetheless tries on different careers almost as often as she tries out different men.
"An eighteen carat, genuine friend"
MARANG (27) is Lou's other best friend from her school days. She's artistic looking – a seriously talented jewellery designer who's career and jewellery studio is taking off.
"Floats like a butterfly, stings like a pain in the backside"
UNCLE CAIPHUS (60's) was once a ferocious boxer. Now he is three-quarters blind and composes poetry which he is dictates to his surviving daughter, Nobuntu.
"The soul brother"
ELLIS (70), is a jazz musician and club owner. A Nigerian-born New Yorker, Ellis is the gentle, wise and loving man who raised Tex and gave him much-needed stability after his mother took off.
"Can anyone say 'trophy'?"
YVONNE SABATA, 30's, is Uncle Phineas's glamorous, social-climbing wife. Although she is many years younger, and many people would assume she only married Phineas for security.
