Make-up and beauty influencer Mihlali Ndamase encouraged her fans to vote for her as it would send a positive message to all the beauty content creators. “Hopefully we’ll take this one home, it isn’t for me alone but for other creatives that need to fight for recognition and respect in the entertainment space.”
