We present some of the responses below.
This is so shameful, she should be pretending to be rich on Instagram & stop all this honesty. Doesn’t she know being real will offend the majority that is so comfortable faking lives? I’m truly disappointed.
Another one suggested that she had fallen on hard times:
From grace to grass shuwa kubva kubuda pa tv ikozvino takumuona muma streets Zim ngairege kudaro….atleast she will use her acting skills kumaketa business.
Another one said:
It’s only in Zimbabwe where people will normalise a great actress like her selling eggs for a living. The truth is the film in Zim is just rubbish guys. Gringo was arguably the best actor of all time in Zim but he could afford his hospital bills.
The above comment was echoed by another social media user:
Another example is Lawrence Simbarashe (from Timmy na Bonzo series)… This film industry is just rubbish.
Others said there was nothing wrong about selling eggs adding that the Irvines family makes a living by selling eggs.
