My pet peeve about the industry is that it so easy for people to become celebrities and get famous, so much so that being called a celebrity carries almost no weight anymore.

Her move to Gauteng four months ago is proving to have been a good choice. DRUM had a quick chat with the Durban-born Wandi C (25) of Mzanzi Magic’s telenovela Isibaya, about her journey to stardom

Q: Tell us about the photo-shoot you recently did.

A: My photo-shoot was my first PR shoot ever, was very exciting because it was a step of empowerment for me, to say I am taking my brand more seriously. I was shooting images that would introduce me to the media industry, what the Wandi C brand is and tell everyone that I have arrived and here to stay.

Q: How are you finding Joburg in comparison to KZN?

A: I am finding Johannesburg a lot more fast-paced because there are things happening every day, from auditions to filming to more auditions. I'm enjoying it a lot because I was wishing for this buzz around the entertainment industry back home.

Q: What would you say is your pet peeve about the industry as a whole?

A: My pet peeve about the industry is that it so easy for people to become celebrities and get famous, so much so that being called a celebrity carries almost no weight anymore.

There are too many people getting famous for the wrong reasons, instead of how hard they work in their entertainment field and how successful they have become. I'm old fashioned.

Q: How are you finding life on set of Isibaya?

A: It’s beyond amazing, I couldn't have prayed for a better team from my colleagues to the crew and the whole production house. I am learning each and every day about my craft and every time falling more and more in love with it.
