Fans of SABC 1’s popular soapie Skeem Saam were delighted after Alfios, one of the show’s overlooked characters finally stepped up and applied for the highly-contested Turfloop University tender. Going against stiff competition, Alfios presented a killer pitch that saw him awarded the gig.
In the weeks that followed, Tebogo Modisane’s Alfios would act shifty throughout his new gig, taking mysterious calls and attending secret meetings after work. Fans could notice the change in his behaviour but singled out the possibility of their most-loved underdog being crooked. However, in the recent episode, it was revealed that Alfios was under the leadership and the guidance of Alfred Magongwa – he was merely the face of the tender.
Left heartbroken and disappointed, fans took to Twitter to express their distaste at Alfios and Alfred’s shady ways. Fans also slammed the writers of the show for not letting Alfios have his moment to shine after suffering for so many seasons. They received the same criticism for never allowing the late Ntate Charles Maja’s Big Boy and Leshole receive their big break.

In the teasers for April, it is said that big secrets will be revealed on Skeem Saam. Particularly about Kwaito Seakamela. Fans have always wondered why he doesn’t like his two siblings Pretty and Sthoko. In next month’s episodes, Pretty Seakamela is going to remember a hurtful secret from her father’s last visit involving a DNA test, which will result in Kwaito doing a formal paternity test. The teasers, however, do not reveal that Kwaito is not a Seakamela but it’s very much like he that he is not.
In other news, Lerato Marabe who plays Pretty Seakamela reportedly tied the knot a few weeks ago. The star shared snaps from her traditional wedding through IG which were later removed. In the photos, she was wearing traditional bridal wear and fans put two and two together. Lerato, however, has not said anything about getting married since that weekend.
Catch Skeem Saam weekdays at 18h30 on SABC 1.
