Not everyone is excited for the star though because they feel like celebrities are the only one that always bag the biggest gigs in the entertainment industry. With others questioning his acting qualification and experience. Some say students who studied acting cannot get opportunities because they don’t “date famous people” or they are not well known.
To think some of my friends are professional actors, who went to school and mastered the art of acting, who have for years been searching for jobs, only for mohale le somizi to hoist everything to themselves. Bophelo ke masepa South Africa.
