She says she has always had passion for working behind the camera and through her Channel O show, she has learnt a lot when it comes to what goes around behind the scenes.
TURNING DOWN SHOWS
Minnie, who has not been on screen since her show was canned last year, says she has been turning down offers for a few shows offers because they do not speak to her soul, and she won't take anything for the sake of money. "The shows I have been offered don't make sense to me, hence I am taking time off to focus on my company. "I have been writing and submitting shows, and it is too early to divulge more at the moment,' she adds. Minnie says she is not officially resigning from appearing on TV yet, but now, her passion is in writing and production. She says: "When the rights how comes along, I will do it for sure."
SOCIAL MEDIA BULLYING
Minnie recently shared her experiences on Kaya FM about how people have been meaning to her on social media. Minnie was trending on Tuesday after she was featured in a magazine cover alongside actress Connie Chume. Tweeps though she didn't deserve to be next to the legend. "I feel sorry for people who feel the need to be nasty for absolutely no reason in social media, like who hurt you do you need a hug coz life moves on and you stuck with all the nastiness in your aura,' she said.
DIVORCE NOT FINALISED
Minnie also reveals to ZiMoja that her divorce has not yet been finalised and she cannot wait to get her surname back."I can't wait to get my surname back, although I changed it on all my social media platforms. But it's not official yet.' she added.
