Zozbini who was the mystery identity behind the ‘Robot’ says her biggest take away from competing on Masked Singer South Africa was overcoming her fears and anxiety, particularly with how she would be received by an audience.

“Being on the show made me realise that I am truly capable of becoming a singer because as much as I love music, I always had a fear of how I would translate on stage or how I’d be received by people”, she told the Sowetan.

The 29-year-old added that when she was asked to join the show, she said “yes” without any hesitation as she knew that she wanted to take part in the singing competition.

“I said ‘yes’ without any hesitation when I was called and asked to participate in the show… I didn’t even need to think a lot about it… I knew I wanted to take part. I love to sing and music is one of the things that bring me the most joy in the world. I also thought that it would be a fun way to introduce myself to South Africans as someone who truly does sing”, shared.

Zozibini continues by telling the Sowetan that she enjoyed her time on the Masked Singer South Africa, labelling it as a “beautiful experience” because of its secrecy element.

“My experience on the show was a very beautiful one, especially because there’s so much secrecy around it, and no one knows who you are – all you do is leave your heart on the stage and witness people’s reactions to your talent which is the most beautiful thing about the show”, the media personality noted.

Tunzi also shares that her most memorable and favourite moment from the competition was when she first stepped out on stage, noting that she didn’t know what to expect.

“My most memorable moment on set was when I first stepped out on stage. I didn’t know what to expect or how well I’d sing but I always hung onto the audience’s first initial reaction, which I think was very special”.
