"To be honest, this telenova is all over the place. ‍♂ I don't know what's wrong with the writers and the production teams of most of the local telenovas as they lack creativity. Why are they not allowing creative flow and inputs ‍♂️"

@uMfokaVathuza added:

"Whatever your feelings are about this Telenovela please remember to be kind to people who wrote produced and actors. Mandla worked so hard on this. Most of y’all were more than pleased to see the same Isibaya off your small screens."
