There is no doubt that cheating and infidelity are social ills that are wreaking havoc in South African communities. Therefore, my quest with this show is to shed light on the impact infidelity has on all affected individuals. As you can imagine doing a show like this takes a lot of courage as you are dealing with people’s lives and their pain on a daily basis. I’m telling you it’s not for the faint-hearted”.
