According to Zimoja the singer is back with a bang following an illness that landed him in ICU for five weeks.

Zola 7 was diagnosed with epilepsy a few years ago which saw him lose enormous weight and struggle with his career. The publication reports that  Zola spent five weeks in a coma, but is now feeling much better.

Zola was reported to be taking medication twice a day for his condition, according to Zimoja. The Mdlwembe singer admitted to being concerned about his health and shared that he “almost kicked the bucket”.

“I could say that I rose from the dead. I almost didn’t make it. I almost kicked the bucket. But the medication is treating me well. I’m trying to eat right. I take200 mg of medication in the morning and in the evening, so it’s heavy. According to the doctors, I will be doing this for the rest of my life,” he told the publication.

“I was in a coma for five weeks due to epilepsy. I was not on any ventilators or anything; I was breathing by myself,” Zola was quoted as saying.

The star said he was working on a new album now.

“I am working on a new album which I hope to will be released on 24 April, but nothing is yet finalised. I have a lot of new music and it’s only a matter of time.”

In early 2022, Zola left his fans concerned following a video that showed him to be frail and ill. As a result, many people donated money to his account in order to help him recover. He said he was humbled by the love and support.

“I’ve received hundreds of texts asking for my banking details. I see I’m trending on Twitter and plenty of people are offering financial assistance as gratitude. I’ve never expected anything in return for the help I’ve given people in need, but this is truly humbling,” he wrote.

According to Zola, he was hesitant to share his banking information at first due to his pride. “Initially I rejected this notion ngoba I’m a proud nguni man kodwa futhi kuthiwa ungabo jikisa isipho osphiwa sona. Ngakho, ngiyabonga Guluva Nation. I can’t respond to all of you kodwa here are the banking details eniwacelile.”

Astute entrepreneur and reality star Mamkhize stepped forward to assist Zola 7. MamKhize invited him to one of her properties in Sandton where they had a great time together. In order to assist the struggling legend, she appealed to rich businessmen and Mzansi.

“I’m commanding all of you to show Zola love. Guys this is me sitting with Zola and commanding the whole country to show Zola love. I don’t want you one day to show Zola love when he is no longer here.”

“Spending some much-needed time with my brother @jamazola7. Guys, I just want to encourage all of us to do the right thing especially when it comes to one of our own. Zola is an unsung hero who has been a catalyst for change in our society for many years. Let’s not turn a blind eye. #ShowZolaLove.”
It was rumoured that MaMkhize had given Zola a whopping R1 million but Zola’s team, vehemently denied the reports. “We request that Media kindly report only truth that is verified to avoid spreading false information. Zola has not received any millions / million from any funder as widely alleged / spread,” the statement read.
