- Dineo Langa feels that it is actually insensitive and ride to continuously refer to an actor as their on-screen persona rather than who they actually are
- Taking to social media, Dineo made it clear that her name does not start with a K and that people need to stop doing what they have been doing
- Dineo wants to be respected for the person that she is, not on the roles that she plays
Dineo Langa is tired of people referring to her as characters that she has played rather than who she actually is. If she is called by a character name one more time, sis might flip.
Fans often fall in love with or form a bond with, celebrities based on the characters they play, not the actual person. Dineo feels that this is a bit annoying and that people need to understand that actors are people too.
Taking to social media to air her frustrations, Dineo let her fans know that her name starts with a D, not with a K – assuming she is referring to her role in The Queen as Kea.
Dineo wants to be called by her name in public on social media. Fans need to get to know the person behind the on-screen roles. Sis was being hella serious and we are sure she won’t stand for this nonsense again.
“My name doesn’t start with a K. My actual names start with D and N.”
The celeb confirmed the news online after her mom, KG Moeketsi, tweeted out a congratulatory message and expressed her own excitement for her daughter's new role.
Dineo replied saying that she was relieved that the news could finally be acknowledged in public and she was ready to take on the challenge.
KG Moeketsi had described in a tweet how she tried to balance being a working mom back in the day. The personality mentioned bringing her kids into the studio in order to finish recording on the radio.
Dineo responded to the tweet by applauding her mom for being a present parent while also maintaining a job.
