Like the previous season, the show will continue to depict how the family struggles to adapt to the southern culture and the generational gaps without making each other feel awkward.
Season 1 ended on two strands, first, the unpleasant encounter Mazzi and Shaka have with the police which makes Cocoa fear for their safety.
