Denise Zimba: "Don't let anyone dictate what's 'cool' for you"

Denise Zimba

 

Denise Zimba has reflected on Generations: TheLegacy and her career as she prepares to say goodbye to the popular soapie.

It was announced, back in July, that Denise would be leaving Generations to pursue “other interests” (more on that here). And in preparation for her final bow on the show, she penned an emotional letter on Thursday where she reflected on her career and brief stint on the show.

“A new chapter under construction,” she writes. “We sometimes fight and work so hard to be in a certain place in our lives, but the reality is, only God has your life planned out.”

She also has some strong words for the entertainment industry.

“I am on the biggest show in South Africa and the most popular youth entertainment channel in South Africa – amongst the many years I’ve studied for this, danced for other artists, countless auditions, ‘FLY CHIX’ – and never have I been recognised for the work and the influence I’ve made … And that is ok, and has always been ok with me,” Denise writes.

“The sad thing is that our entertainment industry strives to be different and grow in a certain direction, but if it continues to embrace the same faces and never allowing new talent to be embraced and supported, we can never compete with the rest of the world,” she added.

“This might be all I had to do before my next chapter, whatever that will be, but I must give thanks,” Denise wrote.

Still, Denise is grateful for the support she gets from her fans.

“Thank you to every single person who believed in my work, believed in the ‘crazy’, understood what I stood for. I will forever be grateful to the many individuals who had only great things to say about me, in my personal space and within my professional (career) space,” she said.

A new chapter under construction. We sometimes fight and work so hard to be in a certain place in our lives, but the reality is, only God has your life planned out. I am on the biggest show in South Africa and the most popular youth entertainment channel in South Africa – amongst the many years I’ve studied for this, danced for other artist, countless auditions, ‘FLY CHIX’ – and never have I been recognized for the work and the influence I’ve made … And that is ok, and has always been ok with me. The sad thing is that our entertainment industry strives to be different and grow in a certain direction, but if it continues to embrace the same faces and never allowing new talent to be embraced and supported, we can never compete with the rest of the world. This might be all I had to do before my next chapter, whatever that will be, but I must give thanks. Thank you to every single person who believed in my work, believed in the ‘crazy’, understood what I stood for. I will forever be grateful to the many individuals who had only great things to say about me, in my personal space and within my professional (career) space. Never stop believing in your greatness. No man can tell you otherwise. You have a power and gift only the higher power has planted in you. It’s up to you to fill up that urge with your love, kindness, talent and courage. Don’t let anyone dictate what’s ‘cool’ and what’s not ‘cool’ for you. Protect and respect each others existence and journey’s. Teach people how to treat you, value yourself. Don’t compromise your integrity, your soul, for the good of this industry that is perceived as a ‘Wonderland’. Most of it is all show. We are all but the same but not the same. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! #boombaby #oy #zaga #nypynyaps #ziggyzag #haahaa #oreng? #yesyou #goodibyee #WHOAREWEIFWECANTBEOURSELVES ✌️❤️
