The show has been a hit amongst fans since it was premiered on streaming network Showmax. The show’s loyal viewers call themselves the ‘mbumba nation’ or the ‘5 am gang’ as they are more popularly known.

The show has enjoyed success but it has not just been roses for the show there has been some negative feedback from some fans who feel that the show has departed from the storyline of the original books which the show is based on.

The casting of Wiseman Mncube to replace the popular award-winning Bonko Khoza was another reason that the viewers were not pleased with the show.
