Former Yizo Yizo Star Innocent Masuku, Struggles with Career and Mental Health

Innocent Masuku

Since his memorable roles in Yizo Yizo and Zone 14, actor Innocent Masuku, better known as Bobo, has faced a prolonged struggle to secure acting roles, which has severely impacted his mental health. Masuku expressed his deep desire for an opportunity to return to his passion for acting.

Masuku detailed how the lack of work opportunities has not only affected him personally but also taken a toll on his family. “Being unemployed has hit me hard, and my family as well. It’s affected my mental health too; I’ve dealt with depression because of this,” he said. “Not being able to provide for myself and my family has made things even worse.”

The actor shared that the journey has been both lonely and difficult, with minimal support. “Nobody has been there for me,” he said. Masuku acknowledged that his drug addiction has been a significant obstacle in his career. “Let’s be honest about my use of drugs—that’s probably one of the things that has held my career back. But I sought help and went to rehab. I fought the addiction because it would have killed me,” he explained. He emphasized that he is now clean and ready to work again. “I’ve even registered with an agent to show how serious I am about getting my career back.”

Despite his efforts, resuscitating his career has been challenging. “In my industry, we attend auditions to get work, but I haven’t been lucky even with the ones I’ve attended. They are hard to come by, and maybe I’m not what they are looking for anymore. I understand that the industry has changed, but I haven’t lost my acting gift. I can still act,” said Masuku. He hopes that one day, someone will give him a chance to do what he loves again.
