Tilo ngwana Rashaka Mokgopo
It was a night to remember. The Skeem Saam episode broadcasted on Friday 10 October left many tongues wagging; not only because viewers were left playing the puzzle game trying to figure out what could have happened to T’bose’ missing condom but also because the SABC 1 lead soapie raised the glamour bar.
The Turfloop based soap opera went all out in an attempt to make the matric dance’s night a memorable one. Mr TV Police found himself mesmerized by the exceptional exquisiteness of Rachel’s and Mapitsi’s dresses to the extent that he had to give praises where they are due.
In the soapie, Mapitsi’s dress was sponsored by her pending mother in law, Meikie Maputla and created by the latter’s fashion stylist. However, Mr TV Police got a hint that in reality it could have been Shoki Sebotsane (Ma Kunutu in the soapie) of Vintage Shock who designed the dresses. But before he could start singing praises, he had to confirm his suspicion.
When approached for comment, the cheerful actress who has a wealth of experience in television acting confirmed to A re di fefere that she is the brain behind the elegant dresses. “I designed and created the two dresses with my 10 fingers,” she said.
Shoki’s sentiments were later shared by Skeem Saam’s publicist, Percy Vilakazi who supplied the exclusive matric dance pictures.
Queen Mapitsi and Prince T’bose walking down the red carpet: If the current situation is anything to go by, then in future we can see the two walking down the aisle, singing I do! I do!
Looking cosy: Zamokuhle and Rachel look set to conquer the world together. So Lelo, wherever you are my dear, don’t bother coming back. We’ll of course you don’t need my approval to make a comeback, I’m just being nice because Captain Malebana is looking for you high & low.
Inside the venue: Everyone is listening attentively to the messages of inspiration. Let’s hope T’bose did not forget what he was told.
A perfect match made in heaven
