Chris Q took to his Instagram to pen down heartfelt letter to Gomora actress, Velile Makhoba.
The star describe her as the next big thing.
Chris says: “When Velile says: “Asithathe isithombe,” cancel all your appointments. It doesn’t mean what you think it means. She was born with a few problems that she can’t do anything about. First, she’s a 2000, which is perhaps the biggest of her problems, because that means there’s no direction, order, structure, foundation, etc. Secondly, uyibhinca, which means at any time, she can break into song, sengisho ingoma yesiZulu, avele asine, completely unprovoked, without warning, regardless of the place, regardless of the occasion. And lastly, she shares my special condition of getting drunk just by looking at alcohol. Yilenhlobo ekuphuza abanye, kudakwe yona.”
In his words, he says he remembers the first day he was introduced to her.
“What an incredible talent though. Oh my goodness! I remember the first time I was introduced to her. It was with a video sent to me by Kutlwano Ditsele while he was doing Shaka Ilembe auditions in Durban. He sent the video without a message. And as soon as I pressed play, I knew exactly what the message was. I watched the first 5 seconds of her performance and I replied: “Whatever the question is, my answer is yes. And now it’s three yeses from me. This young lady is the Leo DiCaprio to my Martin Scorsese, the Denzel Washington to my Tony Scott, and I can hardly wait for our next project.”
“@velilemakhoba please stay as grounded as you are, as authentic as you are, as humble, respectful and, more importantly, as happy as you are. You have an innate gift that no one can take away from you and I know the country is in for a treat. ❤️”
