In Pictures: A look at Zahara’s house that she got back after fans’ donations
Back in May, country artist Bulelwa Mkutukana popularly known as Zahara, had a social media meltdown as she shared her financial struggles with the world. She was in the news headlines after Netbank put her Townhouse on auction. This was due to the failure of the musician to pay her loan from the bank. Today fans of the country singer woke up to the great news that their combined efforts have paid off.
After Zahara realized that the life she had worked hard for was crumbling to the ground, she went on live where she broke down. The musician told her fans about how she was defrauded her hard-earned money by DJ Sbu. Many musicians have been exposing their managements and recording labels to stealing from them; Zahara is one of them. The singer has made some of the most famous hits in the South African music industry and did not have anything to show for it.

Zahara blamed her financial difficulties on DJ Sbu’s record label. This was after Barry Roux tweeted that Zahara should record her Loliwe album again and get money from it. Even though DJ Sbu slammed the rumours and said Zahara was paid, she exposed them for uploading it on streaming platforms and not giving her royalties after she left his label. In the wake of all this news, the musician had asked for donations from fans while on stage, showing she was broke.
