Responding to Tyler’s tweet, Modiselle encouraged him to go ahead with the film and asked to be cast. She shared her accolades and stressed the importance of showing diversity. “Yes you should & can you explore casting me (I've won awards for best actress for an international short film), so you can show diversification & Inclusivity of a black narrative not often explored. With all due respect Sir @tylerperry,” she tweeted.

Fans of the actress have been sending tweets to Mr Perry to give Refilwe a chance. While in an audition earlier today, the actress was asked about a moment in her life when she felt most included and she revealed that it was recently, when the masses endorsed her tweet about featuring in the new Tyler Perry film.

My very first magazine cover & international, in the history of my career from Africa's first successful model with albinism & TV Host, to evolving into a multi-award-winning actress. Yet again history is being made It can only be God & the work of the thousands that walk with me from the heavens. Not many get to accomplish such. I'm in awe,” said Refilwe.
