The fake news of Zola 7 death started making rounds on twitter and Facebook where the legendary Bonginkosi Dlamini, became a victim of celebrity death hoax. The popular star is known for helping disadvantaged people who needed help.
The death hoax trend may have been triggered by the singer’s medical condition, making it easy for people to believe he has died due to pictures of him where he is seen to have lost a lot of weight. The talented singer did make headlines for his deteriorating health condition. City Press reported that the star was diagnosed with chronic epilepsy three years ago.
The Legendary singer also gave out information about his health on his interview with podcaster Macgyver “Mac G” Mukwevho on Podcast and Chill with Mac G, he disclosed about his illnesses giving out a full detailed explanation for his loss of weight and his battle with epilepsy during the interview. “I was very sick during that song [with Cassper] and I think we did about 25 cuts. I was fighting to look normal, but I wasn’t. I was extremely very sick during that video.” Zola 7 said
The allegations were put to rest by people as the family has not given a formal statement and this was not the first time Zola 7 was declared dead on Facebook. But others on the blue bird app claim to have received confirmation that the star was in fact fine and was merely another victim of a death hoax.
Even through the actor is still battling epilepsy which he has been diagnosed with three years ago, his fans are upset and plead that the spread of celebrity death hoax needs to be stopped as Zola 7 is not the only victim of being declared dead while alive.
One of Bongikosi fans decided to take on twitter stating that we need to support, honour and show him love not to declare him dead “Iqhawe lethu” Zola fans pleaded on twitter.
