She’s one of the hardest working women in the South African creative industry, and there’s no shred of doubt that a lot of hard work goes into juggling the many projects Thando Thabethe dabbles in.

But, Thabooty ruffled feathers when on Wednesday, the multi hyphenate media personality and entrepreneur was ensnared in the throes of a public counter-blast following her tweets on the persistent #OpenUpTheIndustry movement.

Thando, who feels that she’s “worked very hard” to get where she is, does not believe that there’s any capacity for her to open anything up, especially seeing she does not really call the shots. “I will be damned before I’m told to open up the industry!!!”, she wrote.

“Open it up for yourself like all of us did!!! To this day… I audition!!! I’ve worked very hard to get where I am…and I’m only just getting started.”

The actress followed with many more tweets expanding on her sentiment.

khanya Mkangisa Busted For Drinking and Driving!

The Queen actress was recently arrested for drinking and driving

Khaya Mkangisa

A video of a reportedly inebriated Khanya Mkangisa being arrested for drinking and driving has surfaced on social media.

The footage, which showcases a nasty exchange of words between the actress an a traffic law enforcement officer surfaced on Saturday evening.

The footage, which Times Live has since confirmed to have been recorded three weeks ago, shows The Queen star being taken into police custody with her hands behind her. While there’s no clarity who recorded the incident from the footage, a confrontation between the traffic cop and Khanya is reasonably audible.

This is not the first time Khanya got in trouble with the law. In Febraury this year, reports surfaced that she’d been arrested for an alleged hit and run. The 31 year old actress told Metro FM at the time that the whole incident had been “blown out of proportion.”

Sho Madjozi is clearly in good spirits!

Her debut album, Limpopo Champions League, has scored SAMA award nominations. More recently, she wound down in a fashion truest to her vibe and aesthetic – assembling day ones to join her for a special time.

“You have to create the life you imagine for yourself”, said Sho Madjozi in a tweet showcasing some of the hottest snaps from her recent African themed birthday bash.

The 27 year old Kona hitmaker treated fans to glimpses of an intimate affair, in which everyone was clad in their beautiful traditional African garb.

“(We) dressed like royalty, served African food and had mqomboti shots”, she informed followers of the day’s going ons.

Thuso Mbedu Scores Leading Role In American Series

Emmy Award nominated South African actress, Thuso Mbedu, has been cast as ‘Cora’ – the leading character on a looming American television series

South African TV audiences first encountered her through the telly when she first appeared on Generations; The Legacy in the not-so-distant past. Four years later, Thuso Mbedu has paced through hoops to become the first South African actress to score a leading role in an American series!

Mbedu has been picked to star as the lead character on Barry Jenkins’ adaptation of The Underground Railroad. The actress will be taking on the role of Cora – the main character in the critically lauded novel.

The 27 year old’s history of flirtations with Hollywood dates back to 2018 and 2019, when she received International Emmy Award nominations for her stellar portrayal of Winnie on Mzansi Magic drama series – Is’thunzi. Although she didn’t bring any of the prestigious gongs home, there’s no lack of evidence that her star has now sky rocketed to global horizons.

The Underground Railroad tells the story of a young Cora’s journey as she negotiates her way in the pre-war South, according to Variety. Following her escape from a Georgia plantation, she discovers the existence of a railroad with a secret network of tracks and tunnels.

“My thumb and neurons are failing me right”, jotted the actress on her Instagram. “So I’ll just do as most South Africans do when this happens: I GOT THE JOB!!!”
