Xola Moya Wam’ songstress Nomcebo Zikode has proudly announced she has started a foundation in her name.

In a statement she said, the foundation is aimed at uplifting underprivileged communities, in partnership with Swiss finance tech company Aidonic, supported by local sneaker brand Drip and Liv Village.

They intend to make many communities around the country beneficiaries of monetary donations by the foundation in an effort to help alleviate some of the difficulties communities face daily.

It will support a variety of causes such as transparency, girl child empowerment, protection against crimes of gender-based violence and education equality.

The foundation is starting off on a good note as Zikode will be donating R125,000 to her home town of Hammarsdale in KwaZulu-Natal.

The singer says this has been a “lifelong dream”. Aidonic said its role is to ensure the donated funds reach the communities they are intended for.
