Cape Town – Double wedding day drama is coming to Uzalo on SABC1 starting on Monday  and on Tuesday at 20:30 in a two day battle of the brides raging between MaMlambo and MaNgcobo.

The war of the brides with Nkunzi as the prize will have viewers enthralled as the 2-episode wedding spectacular will push the scandalous love triangle story to a dramatic conclusion.

SABC1 and South Africa's most watched prime time show, Uzalo, produced by Stained Glass Pictures, is turning up the antics for Heritage Day and the day after when Nkunzi (Masoja Msiza) will find himself before the altar with not just one but two brides locked in a vicious fight over the man – and one of them with gun in hand.

The wedding day drama will play out over two consecutive nights as Nkunzi gets ready to marry MaMlambo (Gugu Gumede) on Monday 24 September but MaNgcobo (Dawn Thandeka King) is adamant to get her man even if she – dressed in her white gown – has to bring a gun to the wedding that Pastor Mdletshe will officiate.

With more viewers home due due to the national holiday, Uzalo that pulled 9.32 million viewers last month on 15 August on SABC1 for its most watched episode during the month is likely to increase its viewership tonight for the dueling brides spectacle that will include a white wedding as well as a traditional Zulu wedding ceremony in the KwaMashu-set show that is filmed in KwaZulu-Natal.

Over the past season producers have been building up the love triangle between Nkunzi, MaNgcobo and MaMlambo, the onetime friends who are now rivals for Nkunzi's affections.

Nkunzi's tuxedo is by die Durban-based designer Nhlanhla Mvubu of NP Creations with each of the groomsmen's suits for the characters of Sbu, Mxolisi and Qhabanga that were also hand-tailored.

The dresses of the bridesmaids for Gc, Thobile, Fikile and Zekhethelo are from House of St. Luke in KwaZulu-Natal. MaMlambo and Nkunzi will also appear in a traditional Zulu wedding ceremony with their wedding attire that were made from artificial animal hides.
