Talk to us about Annetti. Who is she? What makes her stand out?

Annetti

• She is an Ex street kid who has overcome so much • She is a survivor and a hustler • She is a natural leader so she leads the band. • She is an independent young woman

Presenter

How has being a band member helped Annetti overcome some of the tough situations she has faced in her life?

Annetti

The struggle is real! Obviously, Annetti faced some tough situations - living on the streets, not having a family... But being in the band just shows how much she has overcome. She does not let her past hold her back but rather to help her become a better person. And her band mates are the greatest...They help each other in their tough times... they are a family.

Presenter

What kind of influence does each of the other band members bring to the team and what have you learnt from them?

Annetti

Well as someone who has always hustled in life, the band mates have showed her that, friend really stand for one another, they care and assist each other.

Presenter

How did Annetti end up being the band leader?

Annitte is focused. She does not play. She knows what she wants and works to get what she wants. This attitude made her direct her friends and she just emerged as a leader.

Presenter

What do you hope might be in store for Annetti later in the drama?

Annetti

Annetti will encourage the band to start playing music instruments and I think she will play drums… I see her play drums.

Presenter

What do you like about playing Annetti?

Oooh her survivor element is so on point. Looking at where she has come from, all the painful moments to where she is now, a leader in the band, she has friend and she is a caring person… Annitte is a role model.
