Him, Her & the Guys is a South African television sitcom created by Siyabonga Radebe and Lerato Mvelase which follows a young couple from different backgrounds who met at University in Durban and have to face the trials and tribulations of trying to build a life together.
Joe Mthembu and Ntombi Mkhize see a rainbow in their love relationship but need to go through storms of disapproval from family and friends to survive and get to that rainbow.
Ntombi is determined to move up the ladder as a PR specialist whilst taking care of her home business - her man, Joe. Her pay cheque has a couple of zeroes but she can still keep a man like Joe, who is still on a couple of cents.
Joe is a hustler of note, running an unsuccessful video shop that sells almost anything at a bargain when renting a movie, a strategy he believes will draw customers.
Ntombi and Joe are loyal, warm and loving people but can Joe's financial status, his uncleanliness, his implementation of his friend's relationship advice that always backfires and his slow nature keep Ntombi around? And can Ntombi help Joe become a better man, for them to ever get to their rainbow?
Him, Her & the Guys stars Siyabonga Radebe as Joe Mthembu, Xoli Zondi as Ntombi Mkhize, Kgomotso Ditshwene as Pinkie, Isaac Gampu as Mkhandazonke, Charles Baloyi as Bra Zakes and Given Stuurman as Themba.
The series was created and produced by Lerato Mvelase and Siya B (Siyabonga Radebe) of SepJan Productions - the first show produced by the couple. The head writer is Salah Sabiti and Lwazi Mvusi is a writer. The pilot episode was directed by Nqobile Ntuli and the theme music is by Monotone.
