Zakes Bantwini & AKA are at war

Zakes Bantwini and AKA are headed for a showdown... well, kind of! They will be battling it out on the soccer field to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

This forms part of Zakes' initiative called 1GoalforCancer. Zakes, who lost his mom to cancer in 2007, has made it his mission to raise awareness about the disease.

He's also promised to shave off his hair if his side loses. Both teams boast a star-studded list of celebs who have taken time away from their hectic schedules to show support for the cause.

Team AKA includes Twins on Decks, DJ Milkshake, motion picture company director Allesio, Orlando Pirates’ Daine Klate and Lehlohonolo Majoro, Nomuzi Mabena, Nandi Mngoma and Kid X.

Team Zakes includes David Kau, Metro FM’s Lulo Cafe and Amon Mokoena, Donald, Ma-E from Teargas, Good Hope FM’s DJ Lloyd, Moneo, Pearl Thusi, DJ Zinhle and Bucie.

It all goes down tonight (27 October) at Discovery Soccer Park in a 7-a-side match that will see celebrity team players swapping their designer threads for soccer bibs.
