Q:  Tell us about your role in the Collen Chauke movie?

A: The movie of Collen Chauke is called State Enemy and it’s the life and time of Collen Chauke who was a heist and ex-MK veteran, I got a small role there as a shebeen queen and it is really funny because I had to wear a wig, I’m very excited about the part, it is my first film role and I’m really looking forward to opening up more channels of my artistry, It’s always going to be a privilege to be able to explore different parts of your artistic trajectory and it is quite a privilege to work with big names like Mduduzi Mabaso, Enhle Mbali so I’m really looking forward for that.

Q:  What projects are you busy with and what are your plans for the year?

A: I think social media is a great way to express yourself and to get conversation going. I think I use my account to make sure that conversation continues to run in South Africa because the only way we can deal with issues is when we talk about them, I see myself as the country’s instigator and the person who points out the issue we need talk about so that we can be a better country.

Q: What can you tell me about you being outspoken on social media?

A: This year looks very interesting; next month I’m graduating I was awarded a scholarship at Rhodes University in Masters of the Arts and I took off the whole year of last year, so I didn’t really do my thing. Now I’m back on the stage and I’m excited about it I missed it, I’ve been doing couple gigs. There are other healing workshops that I’m working on, putting them up across the country but I’m still developing on it.

Q: Since yesterday was the International Women's Day, what does it means to you?

A: For me every day is woman’s day because I’m a woman and being a woman is not an easy job. I celebrate myself  as a woman every single day and especially when I’m in my periods because that’s when I know that I’m woman. So I celebrate International Women’s Day once a month.

Q: Lastly who inspires you?

A: I’m inspired by a beautiful, independent black woman. If she’s black, independent and beautiful, I feel inspired.
