At the launch event, the two male co-stars both wore custom-tailored tuxedos that had an effect on their admirers. The OkMzansi blog's Shwashwi covered it with the following words:
The show's two lead hunks Pallance Dladla and Khathu Ramabulana twinned in tailored tuxedos. Pallance plays the muscle superhero in the show, while Khathu plays the nerdy detective. How about a threesome with Shwa, boys? Yum! Newbie Khathu is one to watch.
