Ahead of his debut game with the Durban giants, Folz has been captured getting a club jersey from the club’s chairman Sandile Zungu.

It was not just a jersey though, Zungu confirmed that the jersey comes with a personalised name on the back.

The Zulu name AmaZulu have created using the coach’s surname, Folz is simply ‘Fohloza.’ The name has a slang meaning that refers to a man’s admiration or affection for a woman.

It was also made popular by the smash hit Fohloza by Kwaito’s legendary group Trompies.

Check out the video below as shared by the veteran journalist @duke_robin via Twitter:

Meanwhile, Folz is expected to make his AmaZulu debut away to Orlando Pirates on Friday evening at 19:30.
