Dawn Thandeka King wants her prize money from the organisers of the KZN Entertainment Awards. The DiepCity star bagged the Best Actress award in December last year but only received the trophy. She now wants her bag.
The former Uzalo actress slammed the organisers for not paying her R100 000 that was supposed to accompany the award. The agitated award-winning thespian said she has only received R20 000 of the money.
The awards were held in December last year at the ICC in Durban but organisers of the glittering event have reportedly failed to pay the winners. ZAlebs reports that Dawn told Ilanga that one of the organisers, Mhlo Gumede, had promised to give her R50 000 when her father passed away recently but only deposited R20 000.
Mhlo is Zandile Khumalo's hubby. Zandile is singer Kelly Khumalo's sis. Dawn wants Mhlo to pay her the rest on the money now.
