In a post on her Instagram page, the actress who played Lerato, reflected on her journey on the show.

"Truly one of the most bittersweet moments of my career, to actively leave a place I’ve called home. What started off as 3 months of the antagonizing rebel who eventually won over Lesedi’s friendship, became 3 years of the Lerato Matema coming of age story. Silly crushes, secrets, drug addiction, activism, kidnappings, campaigns, sisterhood, a sense of belonging, struggles with identity and young love [sic]," she wrote.

The 25-year-old said she has taken a slight break from acting and will be focusing on her youth skills development and her media company, Busetsa.

“I plan on leaving no stone unturned. Though I have taken a slight break from acting to focus on my youth skills development company, Busetsa Media, I hope to make a return to theatre, devise my own work, venture into the big screen and all mediums of the arts and storytelling. .... And.... Scene [sic]," she added.
