A school teacher in a local Nigerian village, Nasha (Sibongile Mlambo) and Angus MacGyver (Lucas Till) date for several months after the pair meets while MacGyver was living in her village having resigned from the Phoenix Foundation.
In the Season 2 Finale, it’s revealed to the audience and Team Phoenix that James MacGyver (Tate Donovan) is Oversight and therefore not only the head of the Phoenix Foundation, but also MacGyver’s boss since he joined DXS. It was also him that arranged for MacGyver and Jack Dalton (George Eads) being teamed up in Afghanistan. Feeling betrayed, MacGyver hands in his resignation; stating that he can’t work for someone he doesn’t trust.
For 3 months, Mac stays in Nigeria, building wells and fixing stuff. He falls in love with Nasha, a local school teacher.
In the Season 3 Premiere, James MacGyver visits his son in Nigeria; stating that he needs to come back because Jack got himself into trouble. MacGyver agrees to come back for this one mission.
After his Phoenix co-worker Jill Morgan (Kate Bond) gets killed by Murdoc (David Dastmalchian), MacGyver decides to stay with Phoenix for a bit longer, planning to go back to Nasha as soon as Murdoc is put behind bars again. Mac and Nasha stay in contact via video conference calls.
In Episode 3×06 (Murdoc + MacGyver + Murdoc), Murdoc kidnaps and hides Nasha to get MacGyver to help him. While MacGyver reluctantly joins Murdoc on a mission to save Murdoc’s son Cassian (Brady Bond), Jack and Wilt Bozer (Justin Hires) manage to free Nasha mostly unharmed.
At the end of the episode, MacGyver realizes that it’s too dangerous for Nasha to be with him and decides to “take a break”.
