Is the Khuse family cursed? Will they ever be happy? Their precious daughter Tsidi auditioned for the Starstruck competition. Tsidi entered and sacrificed her Matric exams for the Startruck competition. Tsidi got in a relationship with the Starstruck producer, Siya.
When Tsidi was supposed to win the competition she got sabotaged by her friend, Portia. After the competition she became Sunay's backing singer. At least she could earn some money and got to perform with Sunay even though she was cheating them sometimes. Mamokete and Kop were happy Tsidi was bringing something home. They even asked her to pay rent and she did. In the world of music she got introduced to drugs when she saw Sunay taking a line.
When Sunay offered her drugs she was sure she will never take drugs. One day she did and became hooked. She became friends with Sunay's drug dealer, King. King was happy to give her drugs by credit and she would pay with her backing-singing salary. Tjo, Tshidi's crying yesterday broke my heart. Mina I think Rhythm City needs to get another average family like the Khuses Coz the reason everything is happening to them is because there are a lot of things that happen to average families in our society and Rhythm Cit only has one family to depict all that in.
I dont think one family can go through so much in such a small space of time.. Rhythm City need to get another family. Now lemme read the article. Yes it is cursed. Tshidi drop out of St Magdelens 2. She pursues a career in singing but end up in drug addiction 3. Stone unlucky in love 5. Khuse project management saga 7.

They have had their share of unhappiness haven't they? And most of us can see out "own families" in the Khuses. Mamokete always reminds me of many mothers i know, including my own. This rollercoaster sounds like my family. Chomi, you are a Rythm City Khuse family encyclopaedia I'm telling you.
Great article by the way. You are a true Rhythm Cityzen, nhe…? They portray your typical township family but I just hate that gym thing going on outside their house. Cheesa nice one lady and you have a good memory, i must say I feel for Khuse family but things like this are happening in real world. Thank God i caught that scene ya Tsidi and her mom. Tjo i was vibrating. At least i talked to my mom over the fone but i still cried for letting her down.
