Somizi Mhlongo and Mohale Motaung’s wedding special Somizi and Mohale: The Union has broken Showmax viewing records

The special has garnered the most views ever on its first day on the streaming service! The Union is ahead of both the Showmax Original The Girl From St Agnes and the most popular international series ever screened on Showmax.

Speaking on the news, Niclas Ekdahl, CEO of the Connected Video division of MultiChoice said: “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.”

Somizi and Mohale: The Union debuted on 24 February with an episode celebrating their traditional wedding, which merged their respective Zulu and Sotho cultures in a flamboyant celebration.
