Showmax original TV drama series The Wife has got social media talking
The series which is inspired by Dudu Busani-Dube’s book, Hlomu: The Wife, has once again topped Twitter’s trending list due to its explicit s_ex scenes from the last episode.
Tweeps can’t stop talking about the explicit raunchy bedroom scene between Zandile (Khanyi Mbau) and Nkosana (Mondli Makhoba).
Controversial Twitter user, Chris Excel said that the production created the explicit bedroom content deliberately.
They made those sex scenes on THE WIFE to distract y’all since you were complaining that it’s now boring They know we’re an horny Nation… We support sex more than an actual purpose of the show .. That’s why Shower hour on Big brother has more views than an actual show
Jabulani Mcdonald said the bedroom scene was the best part of the show and was even better than 50 Shades of Grey.
#TheWifeShowmax Zandile and Nkosana’s sex scene was the best part of the show even 50 shades of grey has nothing on this one.
Zamathole said that even though Zandile and Nkosana act great s_ex scenes, Hlomu and Mqhele are their favourite character.
Zandile and Nkosana can give us great sex scenes but Hlomu and Mqhele stay winning our hearts even with 2 min screentime heeyyy
The explicit s_ex scenes come barely a couple of days after viewers took to social media to complain about the storyline. Critics slammed season two of the telenovela last Thursday and labelled Khanyi Mbau’s character – Zandile boring in comparison with Hlomu – played by Mbali Mavimbela.
Khanyi Mbau yesterday Khanyi Mbau took to Twitter to address concerns about her character, and the storyline in the Showmax hit series.

I honestly had hoped for an African version of 50 shades of grey with live, that’s how I imagined them. YOUR CRIES ARE HEARD AND I UNDERSTAND.”
“SO I FEEL YOU ALL! imagine how I feel playing Zandile after all my research on her. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! I too want to experience this deep love story.”
