How do you introduce yourself?
Your energy introduces you, but nothing beats smelling fresh, so a good scent is good way to introduce myself. I am Sazi Manzi.
What inspired you to be in the media space?
Media has a plethora of opportunities. Personally it helped me to get closer to myself. I always wanted be in an influential position - media grants me that privilege. The platform is bigger than me therefore I'm using it not just to entertain but to empower others.
Do you think any dude with “swag” can make it on TV or radio?
Sure, appearance and swag can give you a pass BUT can never sustain you. One needs a insatiable desire to innovate, an interest to learn and an appetite to collaborate - that's why I'm still here. That's obviously more than swag, right?
Tell us about the work that you’re doing with the Department of Health?
CavaYourStatus is a Department of Health campaign that aims to create an awareness about HIV/AIDS, STIs and TB, targeting specifically youth of Mzansi. As an ambassador I'm involved in events, testings and educational workshops and so forth.
What wakes you up every morning besides your alarm?
It's the love, passion and hunger to achieve more. Each day is another opportunity to improve my game. That's the exciting part about being alive - I suppose.
What’s your winning formula?
I always pray to God to bring people who are "taller" than me in my life so I can lean on them. Therefore I create a network of achievers from different backgrounds. That's how you grow - I believe.
What’s next for you?
I'm currently honing my skills on Radio and TV. The next step is to be on commercial platforms and engage with much bigger audience.
What’s your routine to stay looking fresh?
Nicely moisturized skin, healthy beard and clear face is the way to go for me. I also drink a lot of water.
What’s your number ONE grooming product?
I always go for Nivea Men body lotion (Maximum Hydration) it smells really nice and keeps my skin hydrated all day long.
Is there such thing as a perfect guy?
Funny enough I believe there is. When a 'man' is in touch with himself and aligned to his purpose - that's a perfect human being right there. I am, myself walking in that journey.
If we had to put you in BOX – what would you remain as besides a Radio Presenter?
A dreamer. I'd always dream no matter what situation I'm up against.
Grand, grand, what do you think is Manbox?
Manbox is a platform for us "men" to help us step up our grooming game.
