The movie was produced by Simon Jamukoko and written by Lesley Gondo.

In an interview, Jamukoko said families must be very careful about the domestic workers they hire because many will end up losing their marriages.

“Ladies must be very careful about the maids they employ because many of them will end up losing their marriages.

“And they must not overreact to kana vaona murume akuita kumbo mumbai kumbo panze  because they will find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

“The movie also encourages men to respect their marriages and not let maids destroy them.

“Ladies must not hire someone more beautiful (slay queen) than them rather hire relatives or older women,” he said.

“The series will hit the small screens this March and this is the Slay Queen season.

“We continue to address issues affecting families, for example, we did another one Muparadzi, Mari yeRopa, and Betrayed among other series.”
