The "Ain't Nobody" hitmaker was unmasked as Miss Monster on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 night's instalment of the show, which sees celebrities perform tunes in elaborate costumes in a bid to outsmart judges and viewers and win the title.
While Chaka was unmasked after an acclaimed performance of Lesley Gore's classic anthem "You Don't Own Me", she confessed in a chat with Billboard she sees her appearance on the show as a victory - as the judges had no idea who the powerhouse voice belonged to.
"I don’t think I got sent home; they just couldn't guess who I was," she said. "They didn't know who the hell I was... They even guessed some dead people!"
However, the experience wasn't without its challenges, as Chaka, who performed with Rufus from 1972 to 1983, confessed wearing the disguise wasn't ideal.
"Performing in that costume. That was the hardest thing to do," she insisted. "And being incognito backstage."
And when asked if there's anything the "Through the Fire" singer will take away from her time on the series, she added, "Yes. That I'll never do anything like that again."
