"What viewers can expect from me on the show is someone who is very honest. I lead a very honest journey in my life and I have been consistent. People can expect someone who is open-minded but not tolerant of nonsensical things."
"They can also expect to see a side of me that is very spiritual that I know many people have always appreciated and are aware of."

A proud rural girlie, Zama told the publication that she takes pride in her roots:

"I've always wondered what it would be like to have a housewife that fits a profile like mine, an ordinary girl from the farmlands; I'm not from the towns or the suburbs. I've stayed in Johannesburg for over 20 years and noticed that even Joburg stands on the shoulders of the people from the rural areas."
