Veteran actress Mara Louw has been trending on Twitter for taking a jab at Ferguson’s Films for blacklisting her and refusing to compensate her accordingly.

Mara Louw was speaking during an open dialogue at Power FM headquarters where South African creatives were gathered to discuss the industry’s plight.

Louw said that in 2003, she earned R65 000 for her role in the TV show Muvhango.

“And then suddenly I’m told by Shona [Ferguson], who is a child and every other producer that ‘Your fee is too high. Excuse me! If you want to pay me peanuts go and find a monkey. I have never received a penny of royalties,” Louw said during the discussion.

She hasn’t stopped there, either. In a brief conversation with Tshisa Live, Marah mentioned how The Fergusons have blacklisted her from working in the entertainment industry ever since she left The Queen. She added:

“Since I spoke out, I have been blacklisted. I have not worked since 2017. It’s a cruel industry. I have been told by a few producers that they would love to work with me but they have been told that I am impossible to work with and complain about money.

“I was told by another producer that he wanted to work with me but was told not to. I now live by the grace of God.”
