“Not everyone understands. My brothers didn’t like me playing the character. They said it wouldn’t work. My mum and her friends have been supportive because they know I’m not that kind of a person,” she said.

Zinhle humorously revealed that she transforms into a different persona when she steps onto the set. She enthusiastically expressed that she is truly living her dream. Zinhle passionately stated that her ultimate goal is to captivate audiences through the power of storytelling.

“Once I do a certain role, I change and become it.Growing up, I watched Generations and wanted to be like Karabo Moroka. Even though I knew that acting was my dream, I hid it. I said I want to be a doctor, but secretly I knew I was horrible at maths, and it would be difficult for me to do medicine.I wanted to have a positive impact on people’s lives. I wanted young girls out there to look at me and say I changed their lives,” she said
