Mzansi Curious As Sello Maake kaNcube Meets Zizi Kodwa To Discuss The Arts Industry
Is a silver lining about to erupt in South Africa’s entertainment universe? That’s one question tweeps are asking after it was revealed that celebrated veteran actor Sello Maake KaNcube has met with the minister of sports, arts and culture, Zizi Kodwa.
The minister himself had shared pictures and a video from the meeting, giving South Africans a semblance of a clue about what went down during the actor’s meeting.
According to South Africans, it was high time the minister and his ministry paid particular attention to the arts and the welfare of artists. References were made to the trouble many artists faced during the lockdown and the seeming indifference of the former minister of culture, Nathi Mthethwa.
Now, with a new man at the helm of the arts ministry, they expect a better deal and not a replication of the past. You can check out pictures and video of the meeting below.
Neither the minister nor Sello Maake KaNcube himself shares the details of the meeting, but key points include the arts industry and the welfare of artists.
It remains to be seen what the outcome of the meeting would be and if a better deal awaits arts practitioners out there.
