Zola 7 on life and music
On the #ForumAt8 we host one of the country's loved kwaito star, actor and tv presenter Bonginkosi Dlamini known to many as Zola 7.
Award-winning South African musician and television Presenter, Bonginkosi Dlamini, known to many as "Zola7" after his popular television show, is working on a comeback.
Born and bred in Soweto, Zola rose to fame in 1999 after his convincing portrayal of a notorious gangster "Papa Action" in the award-winning SABC drama series Yizo Yizo. He has also won several awards and accolades for his music. Zola has been out of the industry for over half a decade after his TV show was canned by the SABC.
Speaking to Sakina Kamwendo during the #ForumAt8, Zola says he actually never left the industry, he instead chose to perform in small towns. Asked whether he harbours any anger at his perceived forced hiatus from the industry, Dlamini said anger is a useless emotion.
