South African music stars Zakes Bantwini and AKA will have a football match for the annual 1Goal4Cancer initiative in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

South African music stars Zakes Bantwini and AKA will have a football match for the annual 1Goal4Cancer initiative in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month. The game is due to take place at Discovery Soccer Park on 2 November.

Zakes challenged AKA to a seven-a-side celebrity football match last year in which each of them put together a team of celebrities to go head to head for the cause. Upon the success of last year’s match, Team AKA won and undoubtedly Team Bantwini has a score to settle.

After last year’s win, AKA shaved off Zake’s hair, a winner's trophy. Speaking to Zalebs, Zakes started the initiative, called ‘’1Goals4Cancer”, after he lost his mother to cancer in 2007, and he hopes to raise awareness about the disease. Bantwini's team includes Doctor Khumalo, Donald, Slikour, Good Hope FM’s DJ Lloyd, Moneoa, Orlando Pirates F.C’s Daine Klate and Pearl Thusi. AKA's squad includes Lennox Bacela from Tuks FC, Darren and Ryan known as Twins on Decks, DJ Fanatic, DJ Franky, Kwesta, Nandi Mngoma, Kid X, Ma-E, Siya Mdluli aka CashtimeSiya and club owner, promoter and director, Allesio.

Donations towards the initiative are being driven via Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, using #1goal4cancer, with proceeds going to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).
