Viewers of the show congratulate Sibongile & The Dlaminis
Shortly after Phil Mphela shared his post, many fans and supporters of the show flooded the comment section and congratulated it for reaching over a million viewers:
"Yes this is good."
@Mabizela_Lwazi praised the show:
"It's a good show @PhilMphela they deserve all the glory. I feel it also has writers that aren't all over the place. Success is guaranteed. They mustn't get too excited and give it 5 days. Sometimes dynamites come in small dosages. 3 days is perfect. Keeps us wanting more."
"They have focused on what most SA shows tend to neglect......a good storyline. Anyone can get great actors, but even amazing actors can't save a terrible storyline. Welldone to the writers of this show, I've been watching since episode 1."
"Well deserved hope the storyline doesn't die down later. I think also 3 times a week helps keep things fresh."
"It’s honestly amazing ! It should be playing everyday."
"This show deserves it. It’s refreshing."
"My favorite show at the moment."
"One of the few SA shows that's actually good."
