Ek kry die laaste ruk baie fanmail om te vra of ‘coloured influencers’ goed met mekaar or die weg kom. Dan was ek ook gevra oor hoe groot die kompetisie of druk onder mekaar is, en oor die juicy-ness van backstabbing, en presies hoé popularity onder ons werk.

 

Maar laat ons eers die probleem met die concept rondom ‘being coloured’ en being 'an influencer' aanspreek. Dr Diana Ferrus som almal in Suid-Afrika in haar werke die beste op, deur te sê; ons is ‘gemeng’. So, indien Verwoerd of Botha met hul onvoltooide grade en ‘missing thesis chapters’ genot gevind het om Suid-Afrikaners te klassifiseer is dit op hulle. It is none of my business. That is why I'm here, and they are not. And I thank you.
