Vat 'n Sit is based on the story of a humble man in love with the only daughter of the Ledwaba family, a royal wealthy family, the Sepedi version of the Setswana royal Bafokeng family.
Thomas would love to marry Mpho but her family has rejected his lobola. Armed with big dreams, baking talent and a true heart but no business knowledge, Gumbi has plans to become a successful entrepreneur and a powerful man.
This season, Gumbi intensifies his business approach in a rush against time to impress Mpho's family. However, in true Gumbi fashion, nothing ever really moves forward.
Gumbi has just bought a new van for the bakery even though it's old. Abi discovers that Thomas doesn't have a driver's licence. Meanwhile, the pressure intensifies as Mpho (Liopelo) might be pregnant and the second round of lobola negotiations go horribly wrong.
The sitcom taps into real South African issues as the concept of "Vat 'n Sit" is a common South African slang phrase used to describe couples who move in together before marriage. The concept is no longer seen as forbidden.
The show stars award-winning South African comedian Trevor Gumbi, who plays Thomas Gumbi; and Liopelo Maphathe, who plays Thomas' love interest, Mpho Ledwaba.
Also featured among the cast are Nyembezi Kunene who plays Thomas Malume; Christopher Kubheka plays Skhumba, Thomas' old friend and township hustler; Chumisa Cosa is Angy, Mpho's disapproving best friend; and Bexta Ndabalime plays Abimbola.
Produced by Black Brain Pictures, the series was written by Tumi Masemola, Mandla N and Nicci Fourie. Mandla N was the creator and director and the executive producers were Tumi Masemola, Mandla N, TT Mbha and Lucy Witts.
