Zitha Macheke changes his last name to Kwinika

Zitha Kwinika said: “The reason behind me changing my surname to  Kwinika is because it’s my Dad’s surname. Zitha is actually also my surname because it’s my clan name from my Dad’s side. So it’s basically me going back to my original surname, going back to my roots. My dad has always been there for me all my life, it’s not like he has just come into the picture. He’s name deserves to be on my back. I am taking responsibility for the family name and making sure his legacy continues. I have been postponing it but I think it’s high time that I change it, which I did and hopefully it will bring out the best of me.”
