Zola 7, real name Bonginkosi Dlamini is doing. I can’t fully comprehend why he would ask South Africans to donate his R5 million need to help others to his personal FNB bank account, writes Buchule Raba.am flabbergasted by what
Anyway, speaking to Zola 7 on Friday he told me that the money goes to Z7 Media, which takes it directly from them to various charities. So, he’s now officially verified by MGOSI.co.za he is indeed Zola 7 not any sort of scam.
Those who think he wants to scam them, he says “Bayanya labo. This money is for needy kids. We don’t need negative people at this point as black people.”
Last Thursday Zola 7 shared a video on his Instagram transporting an old stove from his Melville house to Abraham Grill – Children’s Home and asked fellow South Africans to help him raise R5 million saying, “TV or no TV, Zola 7 continues. I will post banking details where you can contribute.”
In his new initiative, he’s pleading with people to donate music instruments, stoves, toys, shoes, and sneakers.
On Wednesday following several people who thought this was a scam he posted a video to verify that it was indeed him asking for their contributions.
“My account number is #62779539950… I am doing this because I’ve asked for pledges from the public and the people actually don’t believe it’s me. So few people suggested that I must shoot a video to say it’s me Bonginkois… I need about R5 million to go and do a couple of charities…” he explained.
Let’s say I am a business and I want to make a donation. Which means, tax-wise I will be exempted, right? How am I going to be exempted if I am donating money to an individual’s bank account? Did you get it right?
Will I be exempted if I am donating my money to Z7 Media which is not an NGO or an NPO. Not I won’t be because that money went to someone’s business, Z7 Media, and in actual fact, he will be exempted from tax because he will prove that he donated to charity. Got that?
With Zola 7 and Z7 Media I really do not know where we stand but qhubekani and donate.
