Bonginkosi “Zola” Dlamini has bounced back on our screens
In an opinion based press statement Zola, who is no stranger to the limelight, revealed that the interest shown from people in the show has been "overwhelming and exciting."
Zola added that absent fathers is a real issue in today's society, which has caused many people a lot of pain and confusion. "Being able to help a few people deal with this is great," he explained.
The kwaito icon and TV personality also revealed that while filming the series, he's learnt a great deal about the importance of respect and being able to listen to each other.
Zola also urged viewers to remember that this is not a Hollywood movie, but it's real life and it's hard. "I hope when watching the show our audiences also exercise some respect and when you comment on the show, you do so with compassion and kindness," he added.
The show has taught Zola so many lessons but the one he values most, is that we should always remember that there is always hope despite the odds. "Against all odds let's love and respect each other," he said.
