Face-to-Face marked its second episode of the first season, which led to questions on whether the show is an adaptation of Uyajola 9/9.
Mzansi Magic took to Twitter on Tuesday, 19 October 2021, to promote the second episode of the newly launched reality show, Face-to-Face. The show is hosted by Noluthando Nqayi, formerly known as Noluthando Meje. The show features unfaithful partners bringing their partners to meet “the other person”, as they confront the truth while sitting at a table together. Nqayi functions as the mediator of the discussion.
The latest episode featured Nonhle, who brought her long-term boyfriend, Siboniso to meet her new boyfriend, Sifiso. Viewers could not get over Nonhle’s blunt truth by stating that the reason for her infidelity was that the spark was gone from her relationship with Siboniso. Viewers fell for Siboniso’s good heart and boyish good looks. Moreover, the show does not feature highly intensified confrontational moments.
However, it still has intense emotional and dramatic scenes. Viewers have labelled the show as the “private school” version of Moja Love’s Uyajola 9/9. Not only that, but they also suggested that the show is a hybrid of Uyajola and Mzansi Magic’s Mnakwethu. This is as previews of the show suggest that everyone on the table is given the option of staying in the love triangle or ending the relationship.
