“A lot of the emotions Lu was going through in the film, I could relate to. Some [of the emotions] did make me feel some kind of way. I kind of feel like Lu was a bit of therapy for me because she went through a really cool journey of finding herself in this film and that’s kind of where I am now,” she said.

Minnie Dlamini also touched base on parenthood since her divorce. Like many single mothers, she said being a single parent is a challenging task and rewarding at the same time.

“It’s even more difficult doing it alone, And I think for me, it’s just shout out to single parents everywhere. I don’t think I’ve ever been more insecure or questioned myself more than I do right now. But I also feel like God gave him to me for a reason. Sometimes I just got to trust my gut and raise him in a way that I was raised because I think my parents did pretty good,” she said.
