Zola 7 shared a heartfelt moment with a fan recently while he was in the Eastern Cape. The Kwaito star shared a video of their interaction saying he wanted to show her appreciation as she was out to celebrate her 83rd birthday.
“I met up necherry yami while I was in Aliwal North this past weekend. Her grandkids took her out for lunch because it was her 83rd birthday so I sat at her table to appreciate her and wish her more healthy years,” Zola wrote.

After having a few health complications, he took time to do his first public appearance in Mpumalanga at the Strickly Kwaito legends Festival. Zola7 was visibly emotional at the concert after his fans and fellow artists in the kwaito fraternity showed up for him.
“It’s no longer about doing Zola 7 as a show, now it must be a revolution. Everybody must be involved.”
The kwaito festival was held in his honour, but Zola said he wished it didn’t take a tragedy or death to acknowledge music legends.
“It’s overwhelming and humbling and I wish they do it for other artists as well. Unfortunately, others are gone. I was with Mandoza’s wife, he is no more. When this happens while you’re still alive, it’s quite humbling because most of the things get done when people are gone”, he said.
