The media personality has been in the entertainment industry for more than a decade and she is making strides as an actress and director. She was in the highly successful box office hit, Happiness is a Four Letter Word.
Speaking to Sunday World, the actress revealed her plans to change the status quo, "I experienced barriers based on matters such as gender, earnings, budget and not being allowed to tell stories except those female related," she said.
She then went on to say that women have the potential to tell men's stories with the same vigour and intensity as their male counterparts.
We are certainly looking forward to seeing more of Mmabatho's work on our screens.
