The actress said the show challenged her both professionally and personally. She said this was the most challenging project she and her team ever undertaken.

Ayanda penned a lengthy Instagram post opening up about the show, she said it came at the time when she just wanted to rest and not work at all.

She wrote: “Doing this project has challenged me both professionally and personally. It came at a time when I was meant to be away resting for at least 6 months after Isibaya…a promise I had made to myself. I didn’t want to work at all. I just wanted to rest and spend time with my family.

“But God came knocking and instructed us to do this. I was tired. I thought it was too early to get back into the grind but I also know God is never too early or late. So I find myself here again, this time having transitioned from acting to executive producing.”

She thanked the team and cast members for bringing the story to life.

“Thank YOU for bringing this story to life in every way we dreamed of. Most of all for believing in it being worthy of being told. To @flaviamotsisi and @paintedladybutterfly Thank you for holding our hands. For believing in us beyond even what we now know of ourselves.

“This journey has been a true testament of what women can achieve when they build and support each other. It hasn’t been easy (we are all set in our ways🤣) but the result has been worth it. The lessons are what matters.”

Fans are already looking forward to the show, Sihlehle_t responded: “Yhoooo😢👏👏👏this thriller is captivating. This will literally shake us off our seats I can just see it.”

Speaking about what to expect on the show Mzansi Magic wrote on their website: “Nqobile is the ill-treated makoti of the Nkosi family dynasty who manages to outsmart her entitled, abusive husband and take over his empire. She transforms it into a women-led e-hailing service, and with newfound grit, indirectly declares war against her spouse.”

The show features some of the industry greats such as Kagiso Modupe, Magic Hlatshwayo, Nomsa Nene, Lele Ledwaba, Lilian Dube, Abdul Khoza, Nhlanhla Mdlalose, and Ayanda Bandla just to mention a few.
