- Television stars Warren Masemola and Ayanda Borotho took the time to pen down letters to their harshest critics
- They both thanked their doubters because they gave them the extra push to become who they are today
- Being in showbusiness is hard and requires thick skin but the two defied the odds to become the household names they are in the present
Being in the entertainment industry has its perks but it almost always comes with a few pitfalls. Actor Warren Masemola and actress Ayanda Borotho have decided to pen down letters to their critics.
The two entertainers took to Instagram to write down letters to their critics, detailing the journeys they both took to be where they are today.
Ayanda is an author, and although the road wasn't easy, she thanks her doubters for giving her the courage and strength to carry on.
“Acclaimed authors, industry colleagues and friends who I expected to celebrate me instead questioned my credibility as an author and activist. To them, and anyone else who ostracised me, thank you" she wrote.
Warren on the other hand used the negativity he received to master his craft. The award-winning actor thanked his critics for doubting him and rejecting him.
“Thank you for not believing in me. For rejecting me and discouraging me from realising my potential. Turns out, your criticism had the opposite effect," said Warren.
Warren said that the hate he received pushed him to do better. The harsh words he received are what made him become the talented performer that he is today.
