The social media sensation opened up about the attention he and other stars receive from being in the limelight, which can be negative. Lasizwe went on to tell Sbu that YouTube became a dark space for him because of how other YouTubers used the platform:
"People started coming to the platform for the wrong reasons; to drag other people and clout-chase, and that left a sour taste in my mouth. I ended up in hospital, I was depressed, I was going through the most. The R2M thing, YouTube."
Dambuza was dragged in 2021 after raising R2M for a student crowdfund, where netizens questioned the star about what he did with the money.
"I felt like, it's either two things that were going to happen; there's going to be a huge headline that's gonna come out and it's not gonna be the best headline.
"The other is to start over. I'm too young to be experiencing this, there's a saying that 'Stars die young,' I don't want to be part of that statistic. I've worked hard to be where I am today. If I can start that channel with zero subscribers, what can stop me from doing it again?"
He went on to reveal how the concept of Awkward Dates came about, saying he was inspired by UK YouTuber Amelia Dimoldenberg's Chicken Soup Date.
Netizens showed love to Lasizwe:
"Lasizwe is very inspirational."
"Not Lasizwe referring to Sbu as Babes! Cute!"
"Our fave on the show!"
"Imagine Sbuda on Awkward Dates with Lasizwe!"
