Cape Town – The legendary Kwaito star Bonginkosi “Zola 7” Dlamini has been hogging the headlines lately due to growing concerns from his supporters about his frail health and his dire straits.
Seasoned broadcaster Andile Ncube recently took to Twitter to share an intimate video clip of the star addressing the issue of neglect of the youth in black townships.
In the video clip, Zola said that the youth in Alexandria in Johannesburg pleaded for his award-winning show Zola 7 to come back.
Zola 7 was hosted by Zola himself, as he travelled all over the country offering assistance to the needy and fulfilled people’s dreams.
“We were in Alex. And people were talking about the things that they have achieved and everything. So I took the microphone and I gave it to the youth and I said ‘tell me who you are, what you want and where you are going’ and they said ‘Yoh! Zola 7 needs to come back,” said Zola.

Andile said that the conversation between him and Zola lasted for hours and that specific clip “stuck out for me”.
“It was about January when Bonginkosi and I hooked up to catch up and he asked me to record our entire 2/3 hours chat because he had a lot to say. This stuck out for me,” said Andile.
After growing calls on social media for his banking details to be made public. Zola heeded the call and took to his Facebook page to share his banking details.
“I’ve received hundreds of texts asking for my banking details. I see I’m trending on Twitter and plenty of people are offering financial assistance as gratitude. I’ve never expected anything in return for the help I’ve given people in need but this is truly humbling.
“Initially I rejected this notion ngoba I’m a proud nguni man kodwa futhi kuthiwa ungabo jikisa isipho osphiwa sona. Ngakho, ngiyabonga Guluva Nation. I can’t respond to all of you kodwa here are the banking details eniwacelile,” he wrote.
