Actress Omuhle Gela did not take questions over who “sponsored” her recent vacay and hit back hard at claims that she needs a blesser to spoil herself

Omuhle recently served major #vacaygoals when she shared snaps from her ultra-luxurious trip.

Instead of using her trip as an inspiration, some fans assumed that Omuhle is one of those woman who relied on a blesser for nice holidays and clothes.

Taking to Twitter, the actress said it disappointed her that people did not believe a woman is capable of enjoying the fruits of her own labour.

“It’s so difficult to be a black woman in SA. I can’t even buy myself a bag without been asked ‘who got it for you’, I can’t even take pics at the beach on a girls/family trip without the same question, as if I don’t have a degree, and two paying jobs,” she clapped back.

Omuhle went on to remind people that she didn’t work for free and that’s how she’s able to afford her lifestyle

“Some of y’all think we volunteer at work, we actually use our salaries… that’s how we make a living, and that’s how you actually buy stuff… with your salary.”

The actress added that people should do what makes them happy because there’s no set formula to achieving the goals you have.

Here’s a glimpse of Omuhle’s vacay that had tongues wagging.
