Masechaba spoke about Zola's great impact in people's lives when she spoke at the press conference at the event.

“I'm very excited to be a part of this major movement. Zola 7 started a movement way back when. It wasn't a television show, it wasn't a media concept. It was a movement, and I say this because everything he's ever done, everything he's ever touched has always been developmental.

“I'm so proud to be a part of an event. For once we are giving back to the man who gave to Africa, the father of the nation. I say that with confidence and conviction because Zola has changed and transformed so many lives, and it's our turn to continue his legacy.”

Masechaba's words brought Zola 7 to tears and had him expressing his gratitude for the support he's receiving. 

“Thank you for dragging me out of my house to come here because I've been in the house for too long. I've been sick for too long,” Zola said.
