Zola 7 Bounces Back, Thanks To Mzansi

Legendary Kwaito musician and Television philanthropist Bonginkosi Dlamini popularly known as Zola 7 has been making tabloid headlines and trending on social media after a video of him surfaced all over the internet with the ex-host of the successful Zola 7 show looking unwell. Many industry colleagues started showing support with some even making contributions towards Zola 7’s wellbeing and financial state.

These videos started circulating online after it was reported by City Press that the media personality had been suffering from a chronic illness since 2018. The publication reported that Dlamini had been diagnosed with chronic epilepsy three years ago in 2021 and has been suffering from this illness in silence.

Industry friends of Zola 7 and fans started showing love to the Guluva with many offering to show him love, while others contributed towards his well-being in materialistic objects and some financially. Mamkhize was one of the few celebrities who reached out to make Zola 7’s days a little much brighter.

The businesswoman and football mogul came through and made one of Zola 7’s dreams, which was to drive a Bentley in his life, come true. Shawn Mkhize shared to social media a video of her and Zola hanging out like good old friends in her car outside her home as she went to take Zola for a spin in one of her luxury cars.

After this video, rumors started resurfacing with people on social media making claims that MaMkhize had donated R1 Million to Zola 7. Dlamini and his team have since released an official statement on the artist’s Instagram page denying these rumors.

Part of the statement read, “We request that the Media kindly report only truth that is verified to avoid spreading false information. Zola has not received any millions / million from any funder as widely alleged / spread,” the statement read.”

But this was evidently not an attack on MamMkhize, as Zola has continued to show nothing but love and appreciation to her.

This week Zola dropped by on Metro FM during the debut of MoFlava and Khutso Theledi’s breakfast show, Wake Up On Metro, and showed gratitude and appreciation to individuals that have continued to support him. He mentioned that a lot of people had been making kind contributions and helping make him afloat. He added that he had received a sheep that he’s now keeping as his pet.

Earlier yesterday, we saw Zola 7 receiving what many assumed to have been a pro bono haircut from Sheldon Tatchell’s famous salon, Legends Barber, making the musician look younger and fresher.

But to date, Zola 7 looks like he is steadily coming back to business as his brainchild, the Strictly Kwaito Legends Festival made its comeback at the Bears Palace in Mpumalanga this past Saturday. It was also reported that the event is dedicated to, with all its proceedings also to be donated to Zola 7.

In a recent Tweet, Zola 7 shared that he’d been overwhelmed by the love he received in Mpumalanga.
