Recently the second season of the show has started, and there’s a lot of things that are happening in their marriage. Currently Siyacela is 18 years old and Thando is 17 years old. Siyacela left many people speechless after saying that his brother has 4 wives and he only has one, so he needs to catch up. People didn’t expect him to want to marry another wife especially at such a young age. The wife doesn’t agree with him however as we all know eventually it will happen because of how traditional the family is. People were concerned that he is not even done with school but he wants to compete with his brother.
