Mafikizolo star, Theo Kgosinkwe has decided to point out his support on the reopening of the show business .
This is following after artists recently blocked off the N3 Highway near the interchange in Durban, demanding that lockdown regulations around concerts be amended during a protest.
They involved events to be opened with a minimum of 70% attendance.
Theo stated that if the industry isn't opened, many of us can die of starvation while government tries to guard them from Covid-19.
Theo showed his support for the movement, posting its slogan and claiming “the show business is feeling the strain”.
Some weren't in support of the movement as they felt they ought to just wait till everything get settled to avoid further spread.
A follower told Theo saying: “Your health is more important than anything . Suffering of the industry isn't getting to help the people survive Covid-19, or aren’t you bothered? I do understand the industry is suffering kodwa impilo zabantu zi safe na.”
Replying to the follower, Theo claimed that both Covid-19 and hunger had the potential to kill.
He said: “Both can affect you mentally and cause depression.”
Theo further said artists are citizenry and that they need to feed their family even those that are working with them.
He said that the very fact other industries are opening and taking safety precautions, the show business can do an equivalent also.
He said most industries are open and taking proper safety precautions, and therefore the show business can do an equivalent .
“We can also confirm precautions are taken and limit the amount of individuals , like everyone else. Shebeens are open, clubs are open, taxis are at 100% capacity, so when artists raise their voice there's a problem?”
