Ayanda Thabethe on the Narrative That Women in the Entertainment Industry are not Hard Workers. Over the past couple of months, there have been reports that celebrity women living a soft life are sponsored by rich men. There was a video trending on social media, showing a black woman in Dubai having to do a disgusting deed, just to get money from a rich man.
Here at home, women in the entertainment industry are always accused of having blessers who maintain their high life. Entertainment blogger, Musa Khawula has accused a number of women of having relationships with married men who make sure their high standards are maintained. He mentioned the likes of Mihlali Ndamase, Minnie Dlamini and Ayanda Thabethe, all of who deny the allegations.
Ayanda has taken to Twitter to defend fellow women entertainers saying they are among some of the hardest working people she has ever met. The TV personality, actress and model, stated that it’s not easy not knowing where your next salary will come from.
As someone who has worked in the corporate world, Ayanda can attest that industry ladies work as hard as those who sit behind a desk in offices.
“Just because you sit behind a desk does not make one less or more of a hard worker than someone who is a freelancer and I can say this with my chest coz I’ve done both successfully,” Ayanda said.
Ayanda took on Tweeps who are forever dragging industry women who date rich men. She stated that people should be free to date according to their preferences and level of exposure.
