Generations Nicolas and Zodwa take their romance off-screen? On Generations set, Zodwa is Nicholas’ side dish. The two have been playing a funky-link-pinky-under-blanky game behind Akhona’s back. But Zodwa wants more. She wants Nicholas to put a ring on it.
It has recently emerged that Thato Molamu (Nicholas Nomvete) and Xoli Zondi (Zodwa) have been rehearsing their on-screen lines even when the cameras are not rolling. The two are rumored to be dating. But there’s one problem- Thato is dating Generations‘ head writer, Bongi Ndaba and the two have a baby together.
Following Xoli’s departure from Generations when her character was sent to a college to further her studies in Cape Town, tongues started wagging with tabloid newspapers leading the “Bongi Ndaba deliberately written her off in an attempt to keep Xoli away from her boyfriend” discussion.
Of course this was an allegation Bongi poured cold water on when approached for comment in June this year and said Zodwa will be back on our small screen in October. And yes, she wasn’t lying, Zodwa made her second round appearance this October acting all holly-holly but I’m not, in any way, fooled by her “I’m a changed woman” sermon. I know she’s waiting for the right time to jump into Nicolas bed, as she did the last time.
Now that Zodwa is back on Generations and if tabloids allegations are anything to go by, that Thato and Xoli were, or still are, romantically involved, and that Bongi wrote Xoli out of the story line to keep her away from her Ben 10 Thato, then it is in the viewer’s interest to ask if history won’t repeat itself.
