Both Zola and Mzekezeke have had a massive impact on SA music and culture, but who had the biggest run? That was the debate that nearly ripped the internet apart on Thursday night.
It started when Sizwe Dhlomo jumped online to ask the sages of Twitter their thoughts about the question.
Who had a better run between uMzekezeke & uZola?

Soon both legends were trending as fans rallied to prove why their fav was the ultimate.
Fans brought slips for everything, from English skills to merchandise.
Even the likes of Cassper Nyovest and Andile Ncube weighed in on the debate.
Some claimed the question was disrespectful to Zola and there was no competition

Nah!!! Seriously ?!? I was close to them at the height of both careers
Musically + culture + impact + reach + depth + longevity + creativity + social awareness = Zola
Mzekezeke was a great phase thou and carried a label and Sbu thru “Mzakes” put on a lot of artist https://t.co/PzpMWxfTD8

I feel like Zola was only beginning and whatever happened between him and Lance kinda stopped him to continue, so Mzekezeke had a better run. He came for de finish of de start of itself! Hey wena Sizwe, mhlathwakho! He he he he🔥🔥🔥🔥 https://t.co/xmh3iDIvXh
