Mwelase, who portrays Nokuthula in the educative drama Skeem Saam on SABC 1, faced criticism in January of this year for not allowing candidates enough time during their monologues.It was also said that the casting director and actress were prejudiced and gave actors who were well-known in the business preferential treatment.

The actress said at the time to Sunday World that she was just trying her hardest to do her job.


“People must work on their craft. I’m not going to have bosses unhappy with my work trying to please people. I had a judge having to do pre-screening after me because I was being kind and letting people go through, but judges complained that they were getting only ‘wooden mics’ instead of people they were really looking for.”” said Mwelase.

Recently, Mwelase apologized for her behavior:

“Something I never thought would happen, happened this year. Trust me, I didn’t see it coming. I was hurt and angry at God. My biggest question to him was: ‘Why, why to do this to me when you know my heart’. I don’t know what happened to that audition but something in me shifted and I can’t even explain it.

In the midst of looking for what I was looking for, I became impatient and used my will and forgot the person who sent me there,” ZiMoja quoted Mwelase as saying.

“The agencies I’m working with, the strangers who sent me kind messages, the people I’m working with and the entire Black Brain team for the support even in the middle of the storm I was in, izandla zendlula ikhanda,” she said.

“We live and we learn. I hope my mistake leaves a clear message of ‘you can work on something for years and it will take a minute for it all to crumble down’. Include God in everything you do ngoba no Sathane naye akahleli,’ she said
