Rami Chuene doesn’t mind anyone and shares her opinion of what’s going on.
Veteran actress Rami Chuene has been a number one voice within the fight for those that are exploited or vulnerable within the show business , and told TshisaLIVE that she isn’t close to stop anytime soon.
The star has made headlines over the previous couple of years for her comments on the difficulties of being an actor in SA, with Sunday World this year claiming that her character on The Queen was killed off after she sided with fellow actress Vatiswa Ndara in her battle with the show’s producers.
Ndara had written an letter to sports, arts and culture minister Nathi Mthethwa last year highlighting her experiences working for film producers, the Fergusons.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE earlier this year, Rami said she was upset with the ministry of sport, arts and culture for not doing more to guard artists.
And while she had always voiced her anger at alleged mistreatment of actors within the industry, her voice had been amplified by social media.
“I have always been vocal about people that don’t treat artists properly. I even have always been outspoken that . i feel immediately what has made this particular saga is due to how Black Twitter works, all of a sudden everyone has something to mention .
“But it’s no different to what I said two years ago, what I said five years ago, what I said eight years ago, whether it had been on social media or not. Everyone who knows me, knows that it’s important for artists, or employers and employees, to possess mutual respect for what we do and coexist.”
Rami said she believes she is going to always be remembered for raising her voice for those that seemed voiceless.
“I think i’m a force. No-one would forget me, albeit they tried,” she joked. “I think i might wish to be remembered as a committed artist, a fanatical thespian and clearly someone who has always been ready to tackle any issues and be able to cause change for the higher of the humanities .”
