Makgotso M opens up on her struggles on not getting certain roles



Makgotso M took to her Instagram to share a lengthy writeup on her struggles of not sounding or looking South African for certain roles when she goes for auditions.

The star stated she has been told countless times when auditioning for certain roles that she does not look African or South African enough.

In her writeup, the actress gave an insight of her origin and the languages she can speak.

Makgotso said, “I am an African. A South African Zulu and Pedi woman to be precise with British citizenship too because I was raised in England from a very young age. I speak Zulu more fluently than Pedi because I was raised by a Zulu woman and on occasion, you will hear one of the many South African accents when I speak English infused with a certain kind of British accent. (because there’s not just one British accent).
