Williams, who plays the role of Angie, who is a landlord, spends her scenes pleading with her tenant to pay his rent.

"As a fellow creative, this is my first time seeing your work and I really enjoyed it. And I'm looking forward to seeing more from you, congrats," she said.

In a follow-up interview, she highlighted how proud she was of everyone, the director especially, while lauding the production. Although away on business, Koffe made it her point of duty to offer virtual support, encouraging her mother behind the scenes.

The mother-daughter duo exchanged exciting conversations as Williams kept her offspring up to speed with selfies on set.

"I always ask for them and me always boost her up an ah seh, 'Yeh, yuh look nice!'," she added.

Speaking of behind the scenes, the reggae sensation is currently working on an album, so fans will be hearing new music later this year or early 2023. Additionally, she is looking toward to hitting the stage in an upcoming school tour.
