Is the Khuse family
cursed? Will they ever be happy? Ok let me summarise Khuse family’s ups and downs. Their precious daughter Tsidi auditioned for the Starstruck competition. It was a singers’ competition the winner stood a chance of winning R250 000 and a recording contract with Redemption Records. Tsidi entered and sacrificed her Matric exams for the Startruck competition.
got in a relationship with the Starstruck producer, Siya. She even moved in with him to Mamokete and Kop’s surprise. Seeing their only daughter moving out to play vat n’ sit with her boyfriend. When Tsidi was supposed to win the competition she got sabotaged by her friend, Portia. Her relationship with Siya didn’t work out and she moved back home. After the competition she became Sunay's backing singer. At least she could earn some money and got to perform with Sunay even though she was cheating them sometimes. Mamokete and Kop were happy Tsidi was bringing something home. They even asked her to pay rent and she did.
In the world of music she got introduced to drugs when she saw Sunay taking a line. When Sunay offered her drugs she was sure she will never take drugs. One day she did and became hooked. She became friends with Sunay's drug dealer, King. King was happy to give her drugs by credit and she would pay with her backing-singing salary.
Even though she was snorting together with Sunay she would be the only one footing the bill for their drugs debt. At this point Tsidi was no longer bringing money at home. Mamokete and Kop would wonder what’s going with Tsidi. She would tell stories that Sunay didn't pay them. Her parents found out about her drug addiction after Stoan found her overdosed drugs at some dodgy place in Yeoville. She was admitted to hospital and was lucky alive. Stoan had to give King his car to pay for Tsidi’s drug debt. Mamokete and Kop were so disappointed by Tsidi but as their child they supported her.
It wasn’t long after Stoan discovered he is gay when he had feelings for Thula and ended up kissing with Thula. He tried to fight his gay feelings but he didn't win. At this time he was engaged with his girlfriend, Charlotte. Their families were preparing for their big white wedding. Mind you, Stoan didn't have enough money for the wedding but Mamoke and Kop were happy to spend their savings in the wedding. While Stoan's proud parents were busy with wedding preparations and her happy girlfriend planning their future, he was busy bonking with Thula, who is also Charlotte's best friend.
The day of the wedding arrived and everything was ready. Charlotte was such a beautiful young bride. Stoan went to the altar waited for Charlotte to arrive. The church is packed everyone is singing and Stone is sweating at this point. The Pastor asked Stoan if he takes Charlotte as his lawfully wedded wife, Stoan froze and nothing could come out of his mouth and he ran like a headless chicken, leaving Charlotte and Mamokete crying and everyone shocked. The wedding didn’t happen and Stoan had to answer to everyone what happened.
Ultimately everyone found out that Stoan is gay and Charlotte couldn’t be more shocked and Mamokete was devastated while Kop didn’t want anything to do with Stone. His family had to suffer this humiliation in the community. No one wanted anything to do with them because of Stoan being gay. Mamokete lost customers and everyone was speaking behind her back. She even had a stroke but eventually they accepted their son as he is and everything was back to normal.
After Stoan found out that Kop is not his father but Jacob is, he tried to commit suicide at hospital when he was there to donate a kidney to Jacob but he didn’t succeed. Lucky a male nurse rescued him. He became friends with the nurse who is also gay and they became more than friends. Stoan left with the nurse to Stellenbosch to leave there for a while.
Kop on the other hand became jobless when Miles decided to leave Hustle Records and went back to Redemption records. Sbu gave Kop a bakkie for his shares at Hustle, as Sbu didn’t have a job for Kop. Kop’s family didn’t have money and Mamokete wondered what Kop was doing with his money. In the end Tsidi and Mamokete found out Kop was no longer working. But Kop used his bakkie to bring some income at home.
Stoan made a surprise when he came back from Stellenbosch for Kop’s birthday. He had a project that he was busy with but didn’t want his family to found out as yet but they found out. Mamokete and Kop were happy that their son is going to do something big for the community that was discriminating him.
Stoan who didn’t know much about the corruption in the business of tenderpreneurship wanted to do things according to book. His honesty was not good for this business. His partner, Johny was always there to tell him what to do and how this business works. But Stone couldn’t hear any. Stoan became a problem so Jonhy needed something that will put Stoan’s mind onto something else. He arranged a gay guy to be involved with him. The development was not going smooth workers were getting injured. The buildings were falling off them because of cheap material.
Stoan was not happy with how everything was happening with the Extension 9 project. He thought he was exposing Johny to Mr. Tshabalala when he told him about what Johny was doing in the project not knowing that Mr. Tshabalala is part of this corruption. Stoan’s family almost got burnt in their house when Mr. Tshabalala’s people dropped a petrol bomb there. Stoan almost died in all this but got rescued by Johny and that was the end of the extension 9 project. Stoan had to run for his life.
Now Tsidi has a white boyfriend, Dylan she met on campus at Medicine school. They love each other even Dylan’s coconut friend couldn’t come between them. Initially Kop and Mamokete were not very happy with Tsidi dating a white boy but they accepted it. Recently Tsidi found out that she is pregnant. Her first decision was to abort the baby and keep it a secret to Dylan but her friend, Puleng was against the decision.
Tsidi decided to break the news to Dylan who was surprised but didn’t cause a scene. Dylan supported whatever decision that Tsidi wanted to take but he seemed happy with the abortion. Tsidi had already booked a day at the clinic for her abortion. The nosy Sis Bee who is a nurse who happens to be Mamokete’s friend went through the clinics books and saw that Tsidi is pregnant and she wants to terminate the pregnancy.
Sis Bee couldn’t wait to tell Mamokete the news. She was aware that she’s breaching a contract of privacy but told Mamokete not any doctors law comes between their friendship laws and their Christian laws. So she told Mamokete about Tsidi’s pregnancy and that she wants to terminate it. Mamokete was shocked and shouted Tsidi about this. She couldn’t believe how Tsidi has let them down again. She told Kop about Tsidi’s pregnancy he was also disappointed at Tsidi. Mamokete told Tsidi she wants her out of her house and she is not going to do abortion. She will have to drop out of varsity and find work to support her baby.
