#SOMHALE Wedding Breaks ShowMax’s Viewing Records

We have just witnessed an amazing union between Somizi and Mohale. And boy oh boy were we not anticipated and excited to see what went down at the wedding. Well Showmax has come to the rescue for some of us by showing the wedding special.

Their wedding has broken ShowMax’s viewing records. Their wedding special received the most views on its first day on the streaming service. Their special is ahead of both Showmax Original ‘The Girl From St Agnes‘ and one of the most popular international series ever screened on Showmax.

“We expected Somhale to do well but the response was even bigger than we’d hoped, and it goes to show how our shift to local content is paying dividends. In fact, the views of local content are up more than 40% in less than a year.” says Niclas Ekdahl


It all started on 24 February with an episode celebrating their traditional wedding, which merged their respective Zulu and Sotho cultures in a flamboyant celebration.

We congratulate the two for this amazing union!
