With many binging the series over the weekend, the general consensus was a job well done by power couple Shona and Connie Ferguson, but there were a few issues noted by the audiences.

Shona Ferguson portrays Simon “Vader” Masire, a member of the KOJ brotherhood with Xolisa Xaluva starring as his young brother  Mogomotsi “Mo” Masire. Mo has been released in prison after serving a 10-year sentence for armed robbery. Struggling to stay out of the life of crime and start a new life, Mo has to make a decision as to “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
