Speaking exclusively to Briefly News, film and TV graduate Tafadzwa Ndamuka complained about the recent trend that socialites and influencers are getting more acting gigs. She said:

"As a film graduate, I find it frustrating that models and influencers are often given acting roles simply because of their social media influence.
"This undermines the hard work and dedication that many trained actors put into their craft. It's important to prioritise talent and skill over social media following when casting for roles in the film industry."
