Petronella Tshuma, the Rhythm City actress, wrote an emotional statement on Instagram highlighting the value of her being a single mother for two children. The actress talked about how she and her second child's father split up, leaving her alone and two children of two separate fathers.
Sometimes a break is a traumatic experience, and you can only imagine how it is when children participate. It did not work out for Petronella with the father of her first 12-year-old child, so she believed things were different with Camagu, her second child, but it ended in tears.
She published a remark that encourages mothers to mend for their children's sake. She then thought about the year she spent in Rhythm City to the point that she needed to see a therapist and helped her family.
She then asked a couple questions that were linked to mothers who had different infant fathers. Petronella referred to herself as goods of use, and remarked that because of this, her lobola price had fallen. Yikes!
"Here is the thing; in a year to sum it up? Okay. Camagu's dad and I split up almost a year ago. Was that the plan ever? Of course not. Of course not. So here I'm the mother of two lovely boys with separate fathers. Who'd ever want to be back with me? Am I using goods? I must have been the right problem? My Lobola price is likely to change pocket, "She began off.
When Rhythm City was revealed, Petronella remarked that she began worried about her children and how she would supply them now that she'll be out of job.
"I couldn't perform, I had such a breakdown at work. Lines would not stick. Lines would not stick. But here I am, a single mother with two children I have to take care of. Rhythm City my incredible family understood. Gave me the most support and time. Offered and paid for treatment. I didn't go. I didn't go. Because I received news then, the show was canceled. I recall saying to my Cast members, "How am I going to take care of my children?"
Petronella considers herself to be her children's universe, and we can't think of why she doesn't.
"My children are the only people who have witnessed all my colors in this earth. Good and bad. Good and bad. The lovely and the ugly. And yet I'm the world and more to them for some reason. Being a mother is the nicest present that I could possibly have received. And such is the huge duty, "She continued her post. She continued.
Petronella returned to when she was an aspiring 21-year-old actress who auditioned with the fantastic, "I celebrate 10 years as a professional actor this year. I was 21 years old in 2011 and I auditioned before Rapulana Seiphemo, James Ncobo, and Moonyeenn Lee to perform a class act. Moon asked me, "What else are you good at?" I replied, "All I'm good at, I'm a mum."
Petronella then contributed some wisdom words and presented a book that mothers have to read, "And in the middle of it all; I always find myself. I didn't know that gorgeous little girl existed. I filled the drinks of everyone else, including the characters that I would portray. Self-work isn't for the heart faint. It's awesome, yet rewarding."
