“Sjava r@ped me”, Lady Zamar breaks her silence

Award-winning singer Lady Zamar continues to face backlash on social media more than three years after accusing her ex-boyfriend and fellow musician Sjava of rape. The incident allegedly occurred at a hotel in Thohoyandou in 2017 after a concert. Despite the case being declined for prosecution in November 2020, Zamar still receives criticism from social media users.

Expressing her frustration in a recent post, Zamar questioned why she has become an easy target for hate and emphasized that people do not know her full story or the reasons behind her silence. She highlighted the impact of assumptions on her well-being and asked what the ultimate goal of this persistent hate is.

Zamar further asked whether she is allowed to move on from the accusations or if she is expected to continually apologize for trying to rebuild her life. She questioned the motivations of those who relentlessly attack her online and wondered if they would be satisfied only by her suffering or withdrawal from the music industry.


IN OTHER NEWS| iPhone vs. Samsung Phones: Which Is Better?

Can’t decide between an Apple iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy? We put the two head-to-head to see which is better.

Price and Value for Money

Perhaps the easiest difference to detect between iPhones and Samsung’s flagships is the price. While Apple fans may disagree, you may believe at first glance that iPhones are overpriced—especially if you’re not acquainted with the Apple ecosystem already.

Samsung’s flagships, although still far from being cheap, are more likely to give you a better bang for your buck. And since Samsung has such a wide selection of smartphone series, you can expect to find a good deal no matter your budget.


iPhones have usually enjoyed more praise than their Samsung counterparts in terms of sheer photo quality, image consistency, and video quality. But with its S23 series, and more specifically the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung upped its game quite significantly.

Although consistency is still Apple’s strong suit, the camera experience as a whole feels a lot more refined, fun, and versatile in Samsung smartphones. For the people who like to play around with their cameras and experiment with new camera features, Samsung phones are the ones to go for.

Operating System

Comparing iOS and Android used to be pretty easy with the cliché claiming iOS to be simpler and Android to be more customizable. That used to be the end of the story. But as is the nature of competition, both operating systems have evolved over the years—although those old claims remain fairly prominent to this day.

If you remember TouchWiz, Samsung’s older UI, you know how horrible Samsung’s software game used to be—which isn’t surprising since Samsung is mostly a hardware company. But Samsung’s current One UI skin built on top of Android gives easily one of the cleanest software experiences out there.

On the flip side, iOS is proprietary software. This gives Apple more control over the end-user experience which allows for better RAM management, software seamlessness, user security, and reliability. Additionally, given the smaller number of iOS devices, apps like Instagram or PUBG are often better optimized for the iOS experience.

Voice Assistants

Voice assistants and AI are an increasingly important part of the iPhone vs. Samsung debate.

The iPhone’s Siri has been the default voice assistant for the device since the release of the iPhone 4S back in 2011. Samsung introduced its native voice assistant Bixby in 2017 as an alternative to the already useful Google Assistant running on Android phones.

While the attempt was commendable, Bixby wasn’t, and in a lot of ways still isn’t, a match for Apple’s Siri and Google Assistant, although it does take the lead in some specific cases.

But as far as sheer intuitiveness goes, Google Assistant is still the best voice assistant to use regardless of whether you use an iPhone or a Samsung phone, or any other.

Battery Quality

Apple has rarely ever fought the smartphone battle with big claims about its battery. In comparison, Samsung seems to advertise its massive battery life and impressive fast charging speeds quite aggressively.

However, although the iPhone doesn’t have a massive battery, its proprietary software iOS is efficient enough that it ensures minimal battery usage resulting in amazing battery life, especially in bigger iPhones such as the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Plus.

As far as the charging speed is concerned, iPhones still have a long way to go. Apple’s MagSafe charger can take almost three hours to fully charge the iPhone 14 Pro Max; but if you use an unofficial 30W charger, you can fill it in roughly two hours.

In contrast, you can fill up the Galaxy S23 Ultra in nearly an hour using the 45W Samsung adapter—making it more appropriate for power users or gamers.

Apple vs. Samsung: Which Is Right for You?

Nine out of ten times, a buying decision between two great smartphone alternatives boils down to this: personal preference. And so is the case here.

Most people who buy iPhones do so because of the well-integrated Apple ecosystem and the seamless user experience. iPhones handle core functionalities like calling, video recording, system navigation, and web browsing more reliably.

In contrast, if you are a little more adventurous and want a template on top of which you can personalize and customize your device, Samsung phones are the way to go. With arguably better design, a more fun camera experience, more features, and the One UI skin, Samsung flagships do not fail to impress.
