He now looks like a hippo that’s escaped from the Kruger. Bonginkosi “Zola” Dlamini returned to our screens on the drama series Ayeye. He was playing the role of a Recycler, he even talked about how it was an honour to play the role. He really looks like an overweight recycler. But the muso claims his fat was as a result of him getting into character for Ayeye. Yeah right! Not all hobos are overweight. It seems Zola 7 really took his role seriously. Wearing grimy clothes and refusing to shave – all in the name of acting.
