I’m so excited, it’s been a while as you all know.

” I’m at GOG Park apologizing for the promoters non existent sound. My band & I have been waiting for over an hour. I did this to show people I AM HERE. This I had to do because artists are attacked & blamed. I am professional & I respect my audience. But this is out of my hands ,” Zonke captioned the postEarly this year Zonke made the headlines for all the right reasons after she helped a needy student settle her University fees. Responding to the popular “O Jewa keng?” tweet a distraught Bubu Sithole wrote, “I’m currently packing my bags and going back home because I have outstanding fees and can’t register. I owe R29k &they want 17k for me to register provisionally. I was rejected by nsfas twice in a row even after I sent thrumy mom’s death certificate and my dad’s disability papers”
Zonke spotted the tweet and responded with an offer to help Bubu stay in school.
