In an industry where having fixed preferences could easily be interpreted as being a diva or uncooperative, it serves as an inspiration to learn of artists that stand firmly on their values.
South African actor, Muzi Mkhabela is an artist that has laid ground rules to the Isibaya writing department regarding scenes that he prefers to shy away from.
Speaking to the iconic IsiZulu newspaper Isolezwe, The Isibaya actor shared that he has always communicated with the show’s writing team to not ever make the mistake of writing alcohol-related scenes because he wants to serve as an inspiration to his legions of fans.
He explained to the publication that young people look up to him, and should know that he is respectable and that alcohol is one of the social ills that affect the youth.
We salute Muzi for standing his ground. It is exciting to observe the progression and open-mindedness of the entertainment industry.
