    as a Nigerian dyke, i am so happy to see a film that is specific to Africa, that is funny, intense, real and in Xhosa! that is banging! it warms my heart to know & feel how Nigerian the South African film felt to me–by this i mean, i felt some similarities between SA & Nigeria as far as how family is, how sisterhood is, how sexuality is. i also love that it is a South African film and specific to SA lesbians. yesyes! i can’t wait to see it again, thank you and thank you for bringing this to us. love&gratitude ~fly
