Nkosi also reveals that the series is domestic suspense at its very best as it takes seemingly ordinary people and puts them in an extraordinary situation, pushing them to their limits, and then lets the chaos unfold in front of us.

“One minute you think she’s one way, but desperation makes her behave in another, you can never be sure of what she will do.” 

Her character Zozi does not know how to juggle fame and family even though she has many staff members that help with everything while she just gets to be her best self and live her best life.
