According to SNL24, Zola said:

"My manager said I’m the angel of death, and I should stop posting RIPs. The thing is, I care about the industry. I can’t just be posting nonsensical things. We must be real. We are losing people in the industry, and I think we must take care of each other, dead or alive.
"But I won't lie, it's been incredibly painful losing so many talented young people like Akhumzi, Dumi Masilela, Siyanda Sesimani, Citilyts, Zahara, and Mpho. Losing anyone is hard, but when it's someone young and full of potential, it cuts deeper. You just spoke to them, and now you can't bring yourself to delete their numbers. Like Mpho, who was working on a new show that’s still unfinished. The pain is real."

The actor also mentioned the importance of having funeral policies and showing up in people's lives before they pass on:

"I've learned the importance of time and the need to show up, make changes, and live each day like it's your last. Having funeral policies is crucial, as is understanding financial literacy. We can’t keep relying on the media for donations whenever an artist passes away. It's essential to have these policies in place.
"There’s a lesson in everything that’s happening. We need to understand that death can come for anyone; no one is exempt. Unfortunately, we all face it eventually. That’s why I support these families, because it could easily be me next."
