This is a massive opportunity for Sithelo, who has been criticised for not having a stable job. Peeps previously referred to Sithelo as a gold digger and even accused her of using her children with Andile Mpisane to secure the soft lifestyle.

Speaking at the media launch held in Sandton, Johannesburg, on Tuesday, 4 April, Sithelo said that keeping her involvement in the show out of the public eye for so long was one of her "hardest kept secrets".

"This is my first big gig and I am excited to show the world who I am."

Sithelo also took to Instagram to express her gratitude for the opportunity.

"Cats outta the bag! Grateful to be one of the detectives of The Masked Singer South Africa. It’s still so surreal! To be on this platform and work with these incredible people I work with is very mind blowing. I can’t wait for you all to see the show. We are coming to SABC 1 & SABC 3 soon. Thank you for believing in me. #MaskedSingerSA"

Mzansi split after Sithelo Shozi joined The Masked Singer

Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela announced on Twitter that Sithelo joined The Masked Singer SA as an "investigator".

"Sithelo Shozi makes her mainstream television debut. The club DJ and influencer is gonna be sitting on the “investigators” panel on the Anele Mdoda produced South African iteration of The Masked Singer."

Sithelo's stans were pumped after the amazing news was dropped. However, some people weren't pleased and even prayed for the downfall of The Masked Singer SA.

@lesegodice said:

"Rooting for her."

@Sir_MeliK shared:

"Baby girl came back hard. The same mother of 3."

@CrazeeFistaz posted:

"Fave ❤️ I love this for her."

@_reneiloe replied:

"This is so random, but I won't judge or comment before the show airs. She could be adding something to the show. Not everyone on the panel of the American version is in the music industry, so no hate here."

"The SA entertainment industry is obviously based on connections (not hating). It's either we are watching the same people or it's very random poor choices."

"Take this chance and run with it."
