Social media users are accusing actress Nomzamo Mbatha of seeking attention and not allowing Thuso Mbedu her moment to shine. Nomzamo mentioned she also auditioned for the role Thuso bagged, and Mzansi didn't like it.
Nomzamo Mbatha took to social media to congratulate her fellow actress, Thuso Mbedu, on scoring a huge role.
Thuso made history when she scored the lead in an American series, The Underground Railroad, and is the first South African to bag such an important part.
However, not everyone was impressed with the way that Nomzamo congratulated Thuso.
Nomzamo mentioned that she also auditioned for the role, and tweeps felt she didn't need to bring it up.
When I auditioned and found out I was pinned for this role I couldn't stop jumping with excitement! Now finding out that a DESERVING Homegirl got it makes the loss so sweet!!! Congratulations Thuso, I know you will do Cora so much justice!
Here's what tweeps had to say, and from what Briefly.co.za could see, people felt Nomzamo was only trying to seek attention, not congratulate Thuso:
