You've probably heard countless times about how difficult the entertainment industry is. It may look glamorous looking form the outside in, but once you're in the trenches of this industry it does become clear that like any other job, the entertainment industry is rough!
During a recent radio interview, Bujy shared a lot about his hardships working in entertainment and how at the age of 28-years-old he once decided to just take a backseat and really figure out what he really wanted from his career and this limelight business.
Bujy was also asked if he could give the youth some advice about this industry and this is what he had to say.
"The first thing you need to understand when you come into the entertainment industry is that you need to love yourself, and I say this so many times. You need to love yourself, you need to be passionate with yourself and let me tell you, one thing that will tell you that you're worth being in the entertainment industry is when you're able to have a following ekasi lakho (a following in your hood). Once you're brilliant ekasi , then you come and break the ground in the industry, then you should know that you're on the right track."
Bujy also encouraged young people to not give up, if they're really determined to work in the entertainment industry they'll eventually make it there.
"Don't give up on yourself, don't listen to them, if you want to be somebody, you will be that person, you have the power to be whomever you want to be."
Listen to Bujy kids!
