She expressed her disappointment at Bonnie Mbuli and had this to say:
“Bonnie had a good time with me. I was like girl, you have my number. This is so disappointing like what did I do? All I did was defend my work.

I remember being called into a meeting by a producer, telling me that i need to be less heavy&political, be happy and frivolous, only talk about fun & light things in order for brands to like me, I told her no thanks, it was a cost i wasn’t willing to pay.
