 Bonginkosi Dlamini, also known as Zola 7, thanks everyone who has shown him affection.

Bonginkosi “Zola 7” Dlamini, a South African music legend, has expressed his gratitude to South Africans for the overwhelming outpouring of love he has received over the last two weeks.

Nota Baloyi, a rapper and music entrepreneur, started rumors that the former star was critically ill. A video leaked online that showed Zola 7 looking paler than the image that people were familiar with as a child.

On social media, South Africans expressed their compassion and concern for the singer, prompting requests for help. Tumi Sole, an activist with the Country Duty project, had tracked down Zola and his wife’s contact information on Tuesday and said he would call them to find out what was going on and what help was required. Nota also urged fans to listen to Zola 7’s songs online and put pressure on promoters to hire him so that they could attend his gigs.


Zola 7 was deeply moved by the care people are showing him.

In a Facebook post published last night, Zola uGuluva said: “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. #namanje.”

In the comments, people were showing him love.

“Ordinary South Africans are willing to come through for you! We can donate money so that you can leave this cruel entertainment industry, you can start something of your own, maybe buy a farm and live in peace King!! As people who appreciate you, we are willing to do anything to lift you up, you also deserve that after helping so many people!” said Samkelisiwe ‘Sam K’ Mtshali.

IAdvocate Minenhle Ngubane added: “But Bhuti You cannot say that while we r all worried about You ,do a Live Video and confirm ukuthi u ryt ,up until than we never gonna stop worrying 😭😭🥺.”

“We don’t believe Social Media but we still believe in you and are much aware that you capable of taking good care of yourself however we would like to plough back to the good seed you are. Can you kindly allow the hearts that love you so dearly to give back to you as our token of appreciation for what you have done for us as a nation? We love and appreciate you a lot Guluva# one heart,” reiterated Princess Bomza Myabe Mdangekazi.
