It seems like in Mzansi people aren't allowed to try anything new. When people decide to rap, we shade them. When people decide to act, we drag them. And when Dineo Ranaka decided that she was going to try the DJ life out, you can guess what Mzansi did right? Here's a reminder:
Other people might have given up after facing this much backlash but Dineo has hit back in fine fashion. In an interview with True Love Magazine this week, the presenter and mother of two explained why she didn't let the negativity stop her.
"I understand why I came under attack, because some people have been doing this for a long time but lack the platforms to sell themselves. Yet, I’m out here telling people that I learnt how to DJ in two weeks. I’m not going to reduce myself just to make other people feel comfortable."
The Metro FM presenter explained why she wasn't going to play her talents down just to appease other people. She also added that she was willing to do anything to secure the bag, if it made other people upset then so be it. She added
"If I see an opportunity to make money out of something, trust me, I will do so because I’m not raising my children for free. I cannot deposit my love for them at the bank, with the hope that it'll pay their school fees and my bond,"
One thing we know for sure, this woman is not about to quit on her career just because we tell her to and for that, you have to give her credit!
