uBettina Wethu (Our Betty), the quirky, smart wannabe executive who won the hearts of thousands of South African soap aficionados, is back. From June 15, streamed exclusively on Viu, lovers of the series will once again be able to reconnect with the girl whose dramas, loves, intrigues, and struggles to be accepted made her the person to watch. And Viu guarantees her fans will find lots more drama and intrigue as the new season unfolds.
Season two will start with a bang, introducing fresh faces to the key roles of Bettina (Kamogelo Molatlhoe who previously appeared on ETV’s Rhythm City and The Wife on Showmax), Dingaan (Lunga Shabalala, a former presenter on SABC3’s Man Cave and had a long-running role on Mzansi Magic’s The River), Zaza (Itumeleng Bokaba, who played Mampho on ETV’s Rhythm City) and the introduction of Betty’s new love interest, Duma (Hungani Ndlovu, most known for his role as Romeo on ETV’s Scandal).
Bettina Sikhakane, now an accounts manager at brand management firm Nubia, has made some progress towards her dreams of owning and running her own business, but she finds herself seeking financial freedom from her family responsibilities, moving out and starting her life as a strong, independent woman. But the questions that fans will be asking are whether her obsession with Dingaan Jiyane will go anywhere and just what role will his half-brother Duma play in her love life?
“Viewers can expect their unfashionable hero to juggle new moral dilemmas, decisions regarding love, family responsibilities and just how to cope with people like Brandon, Lakhe and Tbang who are determined to upset her career. Add a pinch of intrigue regarding how to work with old-flame Dingaan while her relationship with Duma develops, and you have a recipe that mirrors the experiences and predicaments that many young South African women face in the competitive rat race that are part of high visibility, glamorous businesses,” says Ryan Solovei, Country Manager at VIU South Africa.
“We are proud that uBettina Wethu Season two and the much-loved awkward, straight-talking young woman, whose mission in life is to build the images of others, will be featured first on Viu, a full two months before it is released on SABC in August”, concludes Ryan.
