User Reviews

 
Excellent show
7 March 2020 | by lesliermccreeSee all my reviews

It's about time a kick-a- black Mamba Queen was portrayed on tv to remove the stereotype of my Africa's sisters and brothers. Top notch acting and well put together cast. The show is written with passion and purpose. Waiting for season two with more than 6 episodes.

Love it.
