In South Africa and beyond, actors’ salaries are not fixed abroad and depend on various variables, and one production company might determine wages. However, common entertainment detects wages of the highest-paid actors in the entertainment industry based on show ratings, years of experience, and craft competence.
Despite the entertainment industry being said to be one of the most paying industries, many actors have rundown the claim; such is the case of Omuhle Gela, who admitted that actors do not get paid much as people think; hence they end up venturing into different avenues such as presenters, radio personalities and events MC’s.
The celebrated star actress is one of the lead actresses and long-serving cast members. Rumour has it the Gomora firebrand gets an estimated whopping R60 000 to R65 000 per month due to her influential role.
