During an interview with the SABC, Lillian Dube got real about the fact that artists and freelancers need all the help they can get to survive the financial difficulties brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
She also thanked those who have directed their donations to the entertainment sector.
Lillian said, “I'm so happy to see that on this earth, there are still people who do the Lord's work. I had previously heard of Mrs and Mr Ramela, who have been doing amazing charity work, including giving people blankets in winter from as far as Lesotho, as well as locally. I didn't know that one day, he would honour us as well by helping us in (our) time of need. Because, as you know, we artists are part-time tycoons. The one day you have work and the next dololo."
