Famous bongo movie actress Wema Sepetu has pleaded with Tanzania Film Board (TFB) to lift the acting ban that was recently imposed on her.

Wema was banned from acting for an unspecified period of time two months ago following the sexually explicit video she posted on her social media platform.

At the time, the film board termed the video as being in contravention of Tanzanian morals.

But with speculation swirling around that the actor going broke, Wema has now come out publicly with a plea to TFB to lift the ban, saying she was losing many business deals and money as a result of the ban.

Wema said that since she depends fully on acting to make a living, right now she is can’t generate any income.

Last month there were reports that the actress had been kicked out of her posh home in Salasala, Dar es Salaam over rent arrears, forcing her to relocate to her mother’s house in Sinza, also in the Tanzanian capital.

The Tanzania Film Board however appears unmoved by Wema’s tribulations. The board said it will continue monitoring the actress.

According to wikipedia, Wema Sepetu was born on September 28, 1988. She is the last born of a family of four.

She obtained her primary, secondary, and high school education at Academy International School in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

She later gained admission in Limkokwing University of Creative Technology in Malaysia to pursue an international business course which she did for a one-year and then dropped out to pursue acting. 

She won the Miss Tanzania contest in 2006 and represented Tanzania at Miss World 2006 which was held in Poland.
