Isibaya super-couple Skhaleni (Zakhele Mapondo) and Pam (Lorraine Mphephi) finally tied the knot on Monday’s episode of the hit soapie and it was fittingly ghetto fabulous.
In true Skhaleni and Pam there was plenty of drama as part of the build-up. Leading up to the wedding Skhaleni told a little white lie about the venue, when Pam found out she got cold feet, but changed her mind after a long pep talk from BFF Iris (Mampho Brescia).
The blushing bride, hiding behind a fingertip veil, finally made her appearance at the wedding after keeping her groom and guests waiting for what seemed like forever. For a moment while Pam was walking down the aisle, we were convinced that we were about to witness a rerun of a modern day Runaway Bride, sans Julia Roberts.
But Skhaleni and Pam got their happily ever after – for now – and it was a compelling blast of Kasi power. There was laughter, there was singing and the quirky festivities coincided with the characters that the audience have invested their time week-after-week on Mzansi Magic at 8:30pm following the love story of taxi driver Skhaleni and Iris’ meddling maid Pam.
A clear standout from the episode was the wedding dance (aka “The step”) that was completely swagged-out – yes there was a nae-nae in the mix
