YIZO YIZO STAR: “I REGRET IT’
Masuku first made headlines in June when he opened up about his drug use at an EFF Youth Month campaign where he shared that he got involved in drugs when he got into the acting industry.

“I regret it because I lost so many opportunities, you understand. I lost so many friends and good things and even if I regret it, I can never reverse time and be able to regain that time. It feels bad. Deep down, I still regret it even today. But I am one of the lucky few to have survived.”

The actor also played a drug addict Baksteen Lerole in SABC 1’s drama series Tshisa and admits that he fell into the trap of drugs, according to Drum Magazine.
“The first few years when I tried to quit drugs with all my heart, I had so many problems and lost out on so many opportunities,” he says.
“There are many things I could be counting and could have done. But you know what in life, there is always a second chance.”

The fan-favourite youth drama series was popular in the 90s as it used fear tactics to educate young people about teenage pregnancy, sex work, abuse, HIV/AIDS, and alcohol and drug addiction.

“I spent more than R500k on drugs
Actually, when I combine all the money I lost in the industry is +/-R5 million…” 💔💔

The star who is still known for his role as Bobo also advised young people to be careful of the choices they make.
“Be careful of the choices you make. It’s amazing how time flies. Sometimes, the choices you make can cost you many opportunities.”
“You can go to rehab, but it won’t help if you are not ready fully. I know change is pain, but it starts with you. I did things, I was a good role model and people were looking up to me. I was a big role model, but I failed people and did things they were not expecting. But I decided to forgive myself.”
