Hairstylist GC and salon boss Thobile (Khaya Dladla and Nokuthula Mabika) know each other inside out after four years working together. So it’s obvious that something is up with GC on Friday 7 July and Thobile prods for answers. “GC is acting weird, very upright and not himself,” laughs Nokuthula.
His controlling parents Bhomu and MaXimba (Mduduzi Nombela and Mabel Mthombeni) arrive to KwaMashu on Friday 7 July and the news isn’t good. “He’s going crazy,” hints Nojuthula. “They’re plan-ning to send him to their rural village to marry the royal princess.” Yip, they still don’t that he’s gay “but he’d rather suffer in silence than tell his parents – and he doesn’t want anyone blowing his cover,” adds Nokuthula.
Thobile and their pal Sma (Sihle Ndaba) are stunned by flamboyant GC’s masculine overhaul on Monday 10 July but they agree to help sell his lie. He’s also put his wedding plans with fiancé Jojo (Siphesihle Cele) on hold, only to have his parents ask if his “friend” Jojo will be his best man.
