"Don’t be fooled by the smiles. My daughter and I went and dropped food supplies for the over 20 artists sitting in at the National Arts Council."
Mama KG spoke about how she was disappointed at how much corruption is robbing the arts and it pains her to see artists struggling so much. She said that she was saddened by the situation.
Recently, Minister of Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa said that R300 million that was meant to help struggling artists cope with the pandemic had been mismanaged. This caused outrage from South Africans on social media, with people asking where the funds had gone.
A number of celebrities have also broken their silence on the matter and want the minister to take full responsibility for what has happened. Check out the reactions from social media below:
"Nathi Mthethwa does NOT have passion for his portfolio, he was just deployed there so that he can earn his fat salary..."
"Very sad that this is done by our very own brothers and sister."
"May your cups never run dry, God bless your hearts KG."
