Musician (South Africa)

| Utne Reader September / October 2007

Bonginkosi Dlamini, known as Zola, is one of the most famous singers of kwaito, a form of dance music pitched somewhere between house and hip-hop. His father abandoned his mother and their three children in one of Soweto's roughest and most notorious areas, and his music reflects his tough upbringing. He appeared in the Oscar-winning film Tsotsi and performed on its sound track.
