‘The Wife’ breaks record on Showmax




Showmax’s first telenovela, The Wife, premiered its first three episodes last week and many of the viewers are loving it.

The show has won the hearts of many and it has broken Uthando Lodumo’s record for the most first-day views of all-time on Showmax, as well as Devilsdorp’s record for the most hours watched within four days of launch.

The show has outperformed the launch of any film or series on Showmax ever, including the likes of Game of Thrones, The Real Housewives of Durban and The River.

However, the telenovela tells the story of a young journalist named Hlomu who finds herself in love with a taxi driver named Mqhele.

After she marries him, she realises that she vowed to share more than just his life but all of his secrets too.
