Her acts of sheer bravery and activism didn't sit well with some in the industry and have led to her being labelled a 'diva who is greedy' for questioning some irregular systems in place.
On last night's episode of BET's Behind The Story, Vatiswa Ndara continued to paint quite a sad and grey picture of the state of the Arts in Mzansi. Myriads of other topics were openly discussed on the show and viewers felt a lot of empathy towards Vatiswa after pouring her heart out.
The general sense of Tweeps' comments show that many didn't know that their faves are going through the most behind the scenes.
"I don't think I'll ever be called again," are the words that pierced through the hearts of the viewers, as Vatiswa relayed her story.

This came after she refused to do press runs without being paid by the producers of hit movie, Precious. The actress has since called out Oprah Winfrey and Lee Daniels for not "having her back" when things quickly turned sour for her career.
It looks to be the case with Vatiswa... same script, different cast.
