Mzansi actress and producer Sonia Mbele is finally addressing the rumours that she couldn't pay the production crew of her show Pastor's Wives. According to reports, Sonia didn't pay her staff for three months and they went on a go-slow.
The production crew was allegedly unhappy with not being paid and they left with hard drives and other equipment.
Sonia reportedly missed payments and promised to deliver, but when she didn't the staff said enough was enough. Sonia took to social media to respond to the claims.
"As a baby producer, I will make mistakes and the mistake I made was not to invoice on time (therefore didn’t pay crew on time) and for that, I have apologised," she said.
She also said that she was away on business and she is said that South Africa is trying to drag her for making this mistake.
"Those who want me as a boss upon my return I am all yours. We are currently in the West because the rest of the world sees us, the United States of America, Tanzania, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Ghana, no need to say more!” said Sonia.
