Veteran Mzansi actor, Tony Kgoroge, has weighed in on the way the entertainment industry treats actors and entertainers.

He shared his opinion on social media, and clearly he doesn't have a lot of faith in the government.

Tony is calling on actors to stand united rather than ask the Minister of Arts & Culture, Nathi Mthethwa, for help.

"Dear actor or performer, please know that Minister of Arts & Culture Nathi Mthethwa can't fight for you. The government is not a union. Organise yourself and do away with being excellent individuals. Tell your agents to stop forcing you to sign exploitive contracts."

Tony also feels that the problem goes very deep and that the system is to blame for the issues and difficulties that actors face.

Tony's call for action came after actress Vatiswa Ndara penned an open letter to the minister, revealing the exploitation of actors.

Vatiswa's letter has caused quite an upset, and Connie and Shona, owners of Ferguson Films (which she named in the letter), are taking legal action against her.

They have slammed the letter and said it is misguided, misleading and misdirected.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the actress is receiving a lot of support from fellow celebs and the general public.
