“With ‘Black Panther,’ a lot of us were single. On ‘Little Monsters,’ nobody was single.”

The Mexico-born actress added:

“Everyone — when they’re done with their day’s work — wants to go home to their families, which makes a whole lot of sense,”

“When you don’t have that, it’s very isolating.”

Masekela hails from New York and he is the son of famous South African jazz musician Hugh Masekela. He worked as a sports reporter and has covered the Winter X Games for ESPN and the Summer Olympics for NBC.
