- Rami Chuene and Zenande Mfenyana have played leading roles in many popular Mzansi TV shows
- The two stars know the ins and outs of the cut-throat South African TV industry
- They have both shared great advice to other women who would like to take up space in the entertainment industry
Rami Chuene and Zenande Mfenyana have been in the Mzansi TV industry for some years now. The two stars have both worked on big South African productions including Generations and The Queen, among others.
As it is Women's Month, the two celebs have advised young women who would like to take up space in the entertainment industry to do research, remain strong and never give up.
Zenande, 34, believes that women’s voices have not yet been adequately represented on screen.
"The steps towards representing women’s voices in the creative industry are on a slow but steady climb."
The stunner's advice to other women who would like to take up space in the creative industry is that it is vast and there are so many avenues to be explored.
"They should do their own personal research to equip themselves with enough knowledge for the field they want to go into."
Zenande said she loves mentoring young actresses who are just cutting their teeth in the industry. Through young women engaging in job shadowing, she has been afforded the opportunity to mentor many of them.
Rami, 45, feels that women’s voices and stories have not been adequately represented onscreen and behind the scenes.
"There have been a few opportunities for a few women and that’s a step in the right direction, but we need more room, more space and more opportunities that are specifically and intentionally reserved for women."
She advised other women to never give up and to not stop pushing the boundaries and showcasing their talents and abilities.
"It does get tough sometimes and one can be discouraged but always remember that there’s a place and space for you."
