Zola 7, real name Bonginkosi Dlamini said that he confronted Basetsana Khumalo about the incident but it yielded the results.
“People don’t know the reason I left uTatakho... that a kid called me who intellectually owned it and asked me if I was the owner of Utatakho. But I confronted a couple of people, including trying to talk to Basetsana (Kumalo) to explain what the hell was happening here. Then I decided morally I should leave because what is happening is wrong,” said Zola 7.
Zola 7 said that there is a kid out there that actually owns uTatakho and it was taken away from him.
“When I asked this Mpho she said ‘no if you work for us then everything that is in your brain we own it’ because this kid apparently was working for them,” said Zola 7.
