” So, we are handling a business where we should work ethically. The manufacturer has an ethical commitment to be transparent (about the cash) but no legal commitment to do so. Up until there’s a brand attorney and it is enacted laws, it’s challenging to take the ‘unjust’ manufacturer to a court of law. That is why you cannot pay a housemaid or a teller R1000, but you can do that to a star. That is why our battle as Generation 16 is still continuous.”.

” Actors are the items that make the cash, when specific stars remain in the show, marketers invested a great deal of money to purchase slots because they know people will watch. That big quantity of money never ever makes it to the star because it is not their deal. The deal is in between the manufacturer, the channel and the marketer and primarily the manufacturer is not transparent enough to inform the star this is how much you’re making.”.

The Generations 16 stars have primarily carried on and included in different productions since Generations, nevertheless, Zikhona made it clear that their battle is not over.
