Following social media memes and jokes about her, Muvhango actress Candy Magidimisa has decided to reclaim her power by utilizing the same memes that were meant to embarrass her to empower others.
The 28-year-old actress, who plays Shaz on the programme, is compiling an album of memes generated about her on social media. On June 15, Muvhango's social media team will debut the meme collection.
Speaking exclusively to Briefly News, Candy expressed why she decided to do this. The actress feels that social media has turned into a place of bullying and she's taking back her power.

"Looking at what social media has become, it is the new age tabloid and people often forget that we are all human. We have feelings. I have decided to use my influence and make a positive impact on our society especially on the youth of our country," said Candy.
The actress is putting on a brave face and is not denying how much the jokes hurt her. She wants to make things better for herself and decided to drop the meme collection for empowerment.
"Turn your pain into passion and look beyond, I have been through that also but I decided to dust it off and bring this meme book to life. Try not to box your feelings and thoughts. I have experienced these things I know exactly what they do," she told Briefly News.
When asked what message she wants to send out to her supporters, Candy simply said that she just wants people to enjoy life.
"The message is simple. Live, laugh, and empower others," she said.
