"This soapie, again, is relatable to many families. The storyline is very real to mothers and fathers in the neighbourhoods, many children are born and just that. Mma Ntuli is the best and Meike is also doing her best. One thing again is teens can watch, it is for families to learn from the soap. Best soap ever for families. Lastly had to add someone who is very special as well to this soapie... NTATE WALLET. the poems that he recites are priceless memories to last a lifetime. Thank you again, Skeem Saam"
"Love Skeem Saam. Their storylines are not overdone, it's just a beautiful story told. It's consistent and lures me to watch. Very authentic. I speak Zulu and two of my children speak it. Then hubby Tswana and my youngest does not speak Zulu at all. I feel like I'm watching myself sometimes "
"Wow, what a storyline this is Realty South Africa. Thanks, Skeem Saam for that storyline it shows us how truth can build and destroy many families and lives. A mother who tries to keep her family together by keeping secrets and also on the other side children deserve to know the truth about themselves and that also can destroy them or change their lives completely .in the end the truth must come out no matter what."
