Artists all around the country seem to believe that they have been hit the most with the coronavirus pandemic which lead to a nationwide lockdown.

They, as a collective, have voiced out their struggles and reached out for help from government as some do not qualify for the relief funds set aside to assist them financially.

Most work has stopped and freelancers have it worse, according to ZAlebs such as Linda Sebezo, who is also struggling. Now Nokuthula Mavuso has decided to also pen an open letter, pleading with the minister of sports, arts and culture to assist her during these trying times.

She also revealed that the last time she worked was in April 2019, after the birth of her second child.

Nouthula was set to work on a series this year March 26, however that was halted due to ports of entry being closed.

"I was hopeful that the fund would cushion the #LockdownSA #COVID19SA blow. I sent through all required docs by your dept, I'm yet to receive an acknowledgement of receipt from your dept. It pains me that actors like myself have been ignored or rejected without plausible explanation," she wrote.

She pleads with government for a way forward.
