"I had a terrific time with Guluva [Zola 7], reminiscing about life, our careers, Yizo Yizo, the friendship, and how God and the ancestors have been great to both of us. We're not going to die any time soon, izinja (friends). Ngiyajabula to see you, Baba wam (I'm happy to have seen you, my old man). Namanje."
Together, Israel and Zola captured the hearts and minds of Mzansi for their iconic roles as "Boyza" and "Papa Action" on the popular SABC 1 local drama series Yizo Yizo, which aired from 1999 until its conclusion in 2004.
In the clip, Israel opens up about his battle with necrosis ahead of his right leg amputation in December last year, even joking that he can now run faster than before.
