Phuti Khomo warns young celebs over exploitation
Former Muvhango actress, Phuti Khomo has warned young actress and models to be careful as she claims the industry filled with many scammers.
Phuti has been focusing her energy on her modelling expo to be held next month, which she says will provide a platform for modelling agencies around the world to come and scout local talent.
She told Metro FM that she wanted to get into that space to provide a credible channel for models to get into the industry without the BS that comes with it.
“This industry is full of chancers. It is full of people who will take advantage of people and exploit them. I will not exploit people because I have a lot to lose. This is like years of building my name and I am putting it on something. I am going for a cause here. There are so many things that are happening in their modelling space: human trafficking, child pornography. Children are falling into these traps.”
She also warned both aspiring actresses and models about dodgy agencies that request half naked pictures of people.
She said her platform helped those desperate for fame to get into the industry “the right way”.
