South African rapper Zola has finally come out to speak up about the health challenges he has been battling for a long time now.
The rapper speaking about his life and career on Mac G’s podcast revealed that he has been battling epilepsy which has really affected his music career.
Zola stated that sickness pushed him off the music scene to focus on treating the illness.
He was diagnosed with the sickness 3 years ago, but he’s been surviving via medications.
Zola said he had two attacks when he was driving, one ended in a fatal accident, and has stopped him from driving.
“I lost a lot of weight over the past year. I was extremely sick, I was home and I was shaking. Everybody around me was scared I was going to die. I couldn’t eat well. I was eating Mageu, porridge and Fish. It took me,” he said.
“Nowadays I have to take medication twice a day just to get by,” he continued. “I was very sick during that song (with Cassper) and I think we did about 25 cuts. I was fighting to look normal, but I wasn’t. I was extremely very sick during that video.”
