Actress Rami Chuene has looked back on the past year as she celebrates her birthday, and the star feels devastated to be under lockdown on her big day.

Taking to Instagram penning a lengthy letter reflecting on her trip around the sun, Rami said she has been overwhelmed by the struggles being way too real under the coronavirus lockdown.

“This is my second birthday under strict lockdown. I am so overwhelmed. One minute we’re celebrating life, the next, death strikes and we mourn. What a confusing time. It’s been difficult trying to focus only on the good because our hearts have been through so much turmoil,” she wrote.

Rami went on with a message to inspire some hope with fans in a time without much certainty. 

“Let’s not get tired of being and doing good. There is so much we can still do, we have the power and the ability to do it. May we always remember what’s important in our lives — family, friends, our people. May we continue to be kind, loving and mindful,” she wrote.

Rami isn't the only big name in entertainment to reflect on the past year on their birthday. Sophie Ndaba also thanked God for helping her through the trials and tribulations of the pandemic. 

The star took to social media on Tuesday to wish herself a happy birthday and count her blessings.

“Happy Birthday to moi. God's favourite daughter. Thank you, Lord, for a new season, a new year. The year of restoration is here! You promised. You are not man that you should lie. I'm still here growing from strength to strength. I love you, Lord, with everything I am and can ever be. I'm nothing without you, Lord. No weapon formed against me will ever prosper!”
