Mzansi actress, Thembisa Liyema Nxumalo has reacted to the closure of MUSICA.
A few hours ago, the South African pharmaceutical giant Clicks indicated it would close Musica after it had been in operation for almost thirty years.
The company’s decision to close Musica is a result of COVID-19, which has forced them to rely increasingly on digital consumption of games, music and other forms of entertainment.
In announcing the closure, the company said;
“The brand’s inevitable decline was accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to a rapid decline in foot traffic at the malls where Musica stores are typically located.”
In response, the actress suggested that instead of complete closure, there are still people who collect movies and songs the old-fashioned way, so it should be moved online.
She did not seem satisfied with the company’s decision. Her post reads;
“There are still people who collect music/movies/DVDs the ‘old fashioned’ way. Musica could have moved online and made a place for it. Oh well”
There are still people who collect music/movies/dvds the ‘old fashioned’ way. Musica could have moved online and created a space for that. Oh well🥺.
