These are the South Africa’s Highest Paid Actors – Not Those You Were Thinking!

This may come as a surprise to learn that the highest paid actors in South Africa may very well not be those you were thinking of.

African entertainment industry however, is one sector that lacks a standardized pay scale and the difference in what people go home with as earnings varies as far as your mind can comprehend.

This is simply because remuneration in the entertainment industry most especially the movie sector is largely based on a whole lot of factors.

And these factors may including talent,opportunity given and above all, likability. If you are admired by more people, then automatically, you would become more popular; a very important determinant that largely determines the cost of hiring.

No one can deny the point that South African soap operas are among the most entertaining in Africa.The likes of Generations, Isidingo, Scandal, Rhythm City draw millions of people who become glued to their television screens as they silently pray that the clock ticks more slowly as they eagerly digest every scene in play.

Going by the audience each South African soapie draws, it has been a common notion that Generations actors and actresses are the highest paid in the entertainment and movie industry since the famous soapie attracts over 7 million viewers everyday and if statistics are anything one can depended on.

Also, it would mean that the next highest paid set of actors are surely going to be those of Scandal! and then Rhythm City since they both have audiences in the range of 3 million and 2.5 million. However, you have to know that, things are not always as they seem as you would soon find out.

In a recent revelation by Drum Magazine, South Africa’s highest paid actors are on Scandal! and Rhythm City and if you are still wondering why Generations actors and actresses have taken over the media in recent times, it is to express their views on the state of their remuneration.

It would be recalled that 16 Generations actors and actresses who had their appointments terminated for embarking on an “illegal” strike and refusing to return to work have stated that they wanted to be remunerated according to the industry standard. In a media conference, they pointed out that their salaries, which ranges from R25, 000 for a newcomer up to R68 000 for the longest standing member were not at par with what their counterparts received.
