WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES YOU FACE WHEN RUNNING A SWIMWEAR BUSINESS?
I hardly face any challenges because I run the business online. This was a safe choice for me financially because right now, I can’t afford to have a store. The business works on a demand-supply basis.
NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT ACTING. YOU WERE WELL RECEIVED BY FANS OF UMLILO. WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IN THE NEXT SEASON?
We are currently shooting the next season. My character, Andile, is growing into a powerful woman. I have personally grown as an actor by playing her. Fans should expect a mature side of me in the next season.
ANDILE IS A TROUBLED GIRL WITH PARENT ISSUES. WHAT WOULD YOUR ADVICE BE TO FANS WITH SIMILAR PROBLEMS?
Communication is key. Andile never spoke to her parents about what was happening in her life. Should she have opened up to them to avoid negative energy at home. Children need to be open and honest with their parents. Likewise, parents need to also make time for their kids and show interest in their lives.
Who Are Your Best And Worst South African Artistes?
