With the campaign the SABC soapie aims to influence SA men to appreciate women as they are

Over its 22-year history on air, the show has come under fire for colourism - often accused by its critics of casting in key female roles actors with lighter skin over those with darker skin. Show creator Duma Ndlovu, however, denied to Sowetan and insisted that his cast has always been inclusive of different skin shades.

"Through this campaign, we want to encourage young girls from different backgrounds to love themselves as they are in their own skin many young women suffer from low self-esteem and depression principally due to self-doubt caused by the way they look.”
