If you’ve been watching The Queen on Mzansi Magic you will be well aware of the fact that the late Shaka Khoza, played by SK Khoza, was no saint (something – life imitating art – something). But we didn’t think his funeral was going to end up like this!
Shaka was killed by his brother Kagiso after a scuffle went out of control and although the build up to the funeral was dramatic, it finally kicked off on Friday’s episode. The ceremony spanned two episodes and after an explosive outburst from Mmabatho on Friday, who claimed that Shaka was not a good man, things began to spiral out of control.
As we tuned in on Monday, things blew up after one of Shaka’s (many) lovers continued to plead the case that she was his favourite. What made things worse is that the woman in question was strutting around the funeral with a fake prop in her belly, pretending to be pregnant. When she decided to confront Mmabatho, however, she quickly discovered that she had picked a fight with the wrong one because Shaka’s widow hit back fiercely.
The two fought violently and had to be separated by Prince (welcome back Moshe!) and Kea, who chased the chanceful mistress away while chatsizing Mmabatho. And then guess who arrived to her rescue – Madimetja! You should have seen Kea and Prince’s faces. Wait, you actually can see them below:

Shaka’s burial wasn’t any smoother either, as Zodwa continued to hurl insults at Mmabatho – who at this stage was sitting next to a proud Madimetja (p.s. I take back what I said about nice guys finishing last, well done Madi) but Harriet intervened and tried to encourage everybody to be civil. Once the ceremony was done and dusted, there was to be one last sting in the tale. Onica was probably trying to forget the commotion she left behind but she found herself involved in a war of words with Patronella – who is the last person you want to be involved in a war of words with.
It got ugly, too, and Onica was left humiliated and silent. How could one man cause so many people to fight? This funeral was messy, but we hope Shaka can finally rest in peace.

Get ready to screenshot! Forget finance minister Tito Mboweni sweating up a river while eating chillies in Rwanda, Mzansi’s best meme came from last night’s episode of The Queen.
As mourners gathered to pay their final respects and lay Shaka to rest, Madimetja made a surprise entrance to help comfort Mmabatho. Shaka‘s sister was not impressed and said it was not how a wife should act, sparking an argument among mourners. Read more
