It’s fast become one of the most-streamed movies on Netflix and it’s easy to see why Seriously Single is such a hit. The show follows a successful young woman and her BFF as they try to navigate the dating game in the city of gold.

Fulu Mugovhani and Tumi Morake had a great time filming the Joburg-set film.

Fulu, who plays Dineo in the romantic comedy, says the film is proof women can have it all.

“The good thing about Dineo is she’s very optimistic,” she tells DRUM. “It was good to find a character like that, she is open to love. Some people would shun her for that, saying she should be independent and not want love but why not?

“As we watch the movie, we get to see she discovers love and finds her happily ever after.”

While Dineo is a hopeless romantic in search of love, commitment is the furthest thing from her best friend Noni’s mind.

Comedienne Tumi says she enjoyed playing Dineo’s BFF because it allowed her to explore the idea of women’s sexuality.

“Playing Noni was insane, it made me wonder if I wasted my twenties. My single life wasn’t half as exciting as hers,” Tumi jokes.

“It was nice seeing a woman portrayed like that because when we see men portrayed like that it’s so expected and normal but when we talk about women like Noni, we have labels for them. It was great to have a movie that celebrates a woman who is emancipated,” she says.
