CLINT Brink has won Best Actor at the 15th South African Film and Television Awards.

Taking to Instagram, he wrote: “This award is in honour and restoration of the disenfranchised, hopeless, forgotten, overlooked, unsupported, mismanaged, misrepresented, undervalued, marginalised, meek in spirit and many who are more than deserving but left unfulfilled.”

His followers took turns to thank him for his gesture.


Welile Nzuza wrote: “A force to be reckoned with, still a living legend. Keep rising brother.”

Then Karel commented: “That’s what I’m talking about. Well-articulated and thought-provoking. You really make it feel like it’s our award and not just your phenomenal talent. Thank you. I don’t know if I qualify to call you a friend, but I appreciate the message conveyed. Truly perfect selection of words that matter, but as selfless as you draw faith back in us as the people. Success is sure a future fortified by the powers beyond human’s fathom ability. Final word, I would say well-deserved indeed.”
