Former President of South Africa Jacob Zuma celebrated his 77th birthday last Friday. Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma served as the fourth President of South Africa from the 2009 general election until his resignation on 14 February 2018.
His birthday celebration was filled with laughter, drinks, food and family. Zuma, who is also referred to by his initials JZ and his clan name Msholozi, celebrated his special day with his lovely family over a luncheon.
In the video shared on Instagram by his wife Tobeka Madiba Zuma, we can see him jetting off with Somizi and Babes Wodumo on the flight.
As reported by Daily Sun, the flight was delayed and to kill time the Idols SA judge Somizi sang for him wishing him a Happy Birthday.
“Thank you @somizi and @babes_wodumo for wishing hubby the happiest birthday. Time to call it a day or get the show started (sic),” – his wife Tobeka shared the video.

A life worth being celebrated…having given up your youth Msholozi, took up arms and fought for us to dance freely under the African Sun. The freedom which we will never take for granted. Spending 10 x 365 days in jail eating white porridge every morning, umbila obilisiwe served for lunch and dinner every single day. Did not get the opportunity to bury my Mother In Law. All in the name of breaking your spirit. Spent more years in exhile udliwa oMosquito in the bushes, with malaria and death glaring at you. You have done your bit my love and I have every reason to spoil you and sip champagne with you. And love you like you have never been loved before because you were deprived the most important thing ie Love. Let me stop there and God help me to forgive and not forget. I love you unapologetically and have…for 26yrs marching into our 27th year of Love and Light #happybirthday #msholozi #hubby #loved #by #madiba #zuma 🎁🛍🌹🌸
