Veteran Mzansi musician, Bonginkosi Dlamini, popularly known as Zola 7 has found himself in hot waters after a fraud case was made against him by Queen Kay.
This comes after Queen Kay deposited an amount of R10,000 to Zola’s account to perform at an event. However, the famous musician revealed that the amount might have gone to the wrong account.
This escalated after Queen Kay shared posters of the event on her socials with the face of the Kwaito musician featured on it. Zola 7 upon seeing the poster told his fans that he had not received a dime and would not perform at the show.
“I know nothing about this event. I was not paid, but I see there’s already a poster in circulation. If you attend this event to see me, do not waste your time”, he wrote.
In response, Queen Kay who is certain she had sent the money to the veteran decided to open a case against him. She added that some relatives of the singer and his manager have been harassing her which to her is a confirmation that he really got the money.
“I decided to open a case because I was scammed. I maintain believe that I spoke to Zola 7, not someone else. Now my suspicions are even stronger because his wife and manager Siki Kunene has been harassing me”.
North West police spokesman Brigadier Sabata Mokgwabone confirmed that a case was opened, but said no arrests had been made. According to reports, this is not the first time Zola 7 has been involved in such a scandal. Zola 7 was involved in a similar case of fraud after he failed to purchase music instruments for Siphosethu Manyisa despite receiving donations from fans for that purpose.
