It’s no secret that the entertainment industry in Eswatini was a bit shaky due to covid-19. Eswatini TV had the opportunity to interview some personalities through a panel to discuss the state of the entertainment industry in 2020, where all the personalities pointed that the lockdown was a blessing in disguise.
The panel consisted of individuals from different sectors of the entertainment industry Songstress Nomalungelo, Actor Thembinkhosi Mthethwa, Radio Dj Fifi Dope, WORD!S Director Velefini and Comedian Dr Shakes.
Despite the fact that covid-19 really hit hard on artists and forced them to tap into the online platform, Dr Shakes said going digital helped him tremendously by exposing him more as an artist thus accumulating more followers.
Speaking on the Film’s side Thembinkhosi said the Lockdown forced people to stay at home so they had plenty of time to watch TV and kept glued on social media platforms, which worked to their advantage.
