Didi is on air with a celebrity. As she begins to interview her, a question comes up about her love life. Didi asks her if she is seeing anyone. She explains that she is single. Didi is in disbelief that a movie star also struggles to find love. The actress attributes her singleness to the fact that she has 2 kids. She finds it difficult to date men that do not approve of her children or are not willing to give them a chance. As a result, Didi feels convicted and reaches out to Editi. We see them next discussing and she acknowledges that she was close minded towards their relationship because he is a father. She asks him for a chance and he responds by asking about her work.
This episode seemed to just be full of bad decisions all around. I don’t understand how Tiwa is not willing to help her husband and his company which is also the family business. I don’t know why Shalewa is so forgiving and trusting with a man she barely knows. Lastly, Didi accepts accountability and admits her faults. Editi practically dismisses her. Some man can be so arrogant. She made a mistake, no one is perfect. I was all for a new depth in this show, a fresh perspective if you will. However, the direction is proving negative and pretty sobering by illustrating the harsh realities of life. Maybe it’s me but Sunshine I want the happy ending and the romance and the butterflies. I’m not hear for all of this. Looking forward to the next episode. Until then….
