Zizo Sobutyu's Skeem Saam character has taught her kindness

Sobutyu's character, Mosebjadi, is bullied at Turf High School, which resonates with many viewers. The actress said she had to understand the character to portray her correctly and has learnt to embrace the struggles she faces.

I've learnt so many things from this character but the most important thing is that I've learnt how bullying can affect you in so many ways and how it can destroy you. Bullying shouldn't be taken for granted. Be kind; we all wear masks. We all portray ourselves as happy souls, but the things we go through are bigger than us. Seek God. Pray. Again, be kind.

While talking to Sowetan Live about her Skeem Saam role, Zizo revealed that unlike her character, who faces bullying on the show, she made many friends in school. She also urged other students to start preparing early for them to pass.

I remember the learners being so loving and open, and I did just fine on my first day. I'm the type of person who studies hard. I believe what you put in is what you get out. My advice to the class of 2022 is to be committed to your craft. It is best to start revising now and preparing so that you can build your performance, rather than waiting up until exam time in order to start studying.
