As much as viewers love a good on-screen romance, Mzansi tweeps can agree that passionately smooching people you have no romantic involvement with can prove to be difficult.
"I'm glad Covid happened so that actors can stop kissing onscreen man. We already know that you ste acting, so why do real kisses!? Same way as they don't hit/fight each other for real, they can also pretend to be kissing. Kissing in acting is a no for me."
@ZwoNenungwi even went as far as asking:
"Where can we sign the petition of no kissing scenes, coz wow."
The tweeps were not the only people who agreed with Mavuso. Fellow thespian Generations: The Legacy's Refilwe Madumo joined the chat to reassure Nokuthula that she shares the same sentiment.
