Musician, actor, poet and TV presenter Bongikosi Dlamini, more popularly known as Zola, has lashed out at bloggers who keep writing about him.
Speaking during an interview with DJ Sabby on YFM, Zola said some black people think they are better than others and know everything.
He added that the bloggers have a lot to say about him but do not know the real Zola.
Although he has faded somewhat from the limelight compared to his heyday, he insisted that he's still the same old Zola. He said:
Nothing ever changed with the brand. It is just little puny people who are blogging in the corner, compared to the 95 percent of the population who know exactly who Zola is. I call it the fame belt.
Everyone who thinks they are something is from Braamfontein to Centurion. They have a lot to say about other people.
Zola blamed it on classism:
Eventually apartheid changed to classism. There are certain blacks who think they are better, but they are a planet so small they are not even discovered yet.
The famed artiste has continued with his well-known philanthropy. He recently partnered with Afribiz Academy to give away three bursaries in the field of construction.
