It goes without saying that this year Mzansi has basically owned Netflix. How to ruin Christmas is also right up there on the Mzansi series’ that totally rocked Netflix. The show premiered on the of 16th of December and has since seen viewership across the world.
How to ruin Christmas is a fierce combination of laughter, family dynamics, romance and again laughter. The show portrays two different extremes of Mzansi families, the boujie Twalas and the ghetto fabulous Sellos. Opposites that attract but cause chaos! The shoe’s tag line basically explains it all- happy families are boring! The show is relatable as it presents characters derived from real life black families. The dramatic aunties, the black sheep sibling, the drunk uncle who spices up everything. The key selling point of the show is perhaps its relatability above everything. The story is set around Beauty and Sbu’s wedding. A couple that is trying as much as possible to have a drama free wedding but clearly it’s too much to ask. No such thing as an African wedding without drama.
If ever you needed motivation to watch the show to ruin Christmas: The Wedding, the star studded cast might just be all the motivation you need. Thando Thabethe and Sandile Mahlangu take center stage of the series as the lead couple, Sbu and Beauty.
Other actors gracing the Netflix screen include Rami Chuene, Clementine Mosimane, Desmond Dube, Trevor Gumbi, Yonda Thomas, Busisiws Lurayi and Motlatse Mafatshe among other actors.
The star of the show though is a sheep called Succulent! You read that right. The sheep steals the spotlight from the entire star studded cast.
The bonus of the show’s premiere is Thando Thabethe giving away replicas of the dresses she wore at the wedding of the show. Visit her Instagram for more details. You just might be the lucky one!
