Cape Town – The legendary and incomparable Kwaito star Bonginkosi “Zola 7″ Dlamini took to Twitter during the week to announce an upcoming Kwaito Legends Festival to be hosted in his honour at The Bears Palace in Mpumalanga on April 2.
Since growing concerns for Zola’s wellbeing trended on social media, the entertainment industry and prominent politicians have taken it upon themselves to offer the living legend the kind of help that he needs to get back up on his feet.
“Ngiyabonga (thank you) Mpumalanga. On the 2nd of April make your way to The Bears Palace for the strictly Kwaito legends gig,” said Zola.

The event’s lineup will feature some of the legends of Kwaito reminiscent of the 90’s era where the music genre was the rave of expression amongst the black youth in townships in a defiant spirit against black oppression.
In a video clip, he shared earlier on Facebook, Zola pledged to assist the youth with the unemployment crisis South Africa is currently facing through using his contacts in the entertainment industry.
“I will make a plan for a lot of you. I know there is a problem with jobs in this country, just give me a chance to recover. I’m coming with the hustle this year. I’m going to try to help you. I’ve got all the right people,” he said.
