Entertainers in the industry were hard hit during the country’s shut down with films and series shoots coming to a halt.

Certain parts of the industry only resumed work last week under level 4 of the national lockdown.

Whilst the government has set up funds for actors to receive financial aid the requirements are very tight.

“Still Breathing” actress Tiffany Barbuzano’s attempt to receive financial relief from the government’s Arts and Culture Relief Fund has failed.

Barbuzano took to Twitter to share a picture of the unsuccessful application saying that she has paid taxes for 25 years, but “here she is”.

Together with the picture she wrote: “No relief but at least I got wishes for future endeavors. I’m gonna do some online shopping with them now… how much luck for future endeavors is equal to R100?” it read.

Fans and followers where quick to jump on the tweet slamming Minister Nathi Mthethwa and the ministry for not assisting actors.

If it’s only postponed until some yet to be decided date, you’re not allowed to go hungry. Instead of feeding your boys Post Toasties, you can feed them Post Ponies. What’s not to like?

Please appeal this decision..it can’t be that a postponement is deemed a criteria for disqualification. If that is the case why then is the government paying temporary grants via SASSA. This Covid-19 is a temporary situation hence the postponement of the production.
