"Streaming Zahara’s debut album the whole day ❤️. A masterpiece "
"Zahara’s “Umgodi” went gold in 6 hours and Platinum in 24 hours. Phendula achieved Platinum in a day and Country Girl double platinum in a day. Think about your fav local artist and compare their sales to her sales. Loliwe sold over 800k albums. Those were mostly hard copies."
Zahara's legal woes grow
Earlier, Briefly News reported that Zahara is neck-deep in legal woes. Just last week, the singer and songwriter was found guilty of being in contempt of court after she failed to appear in several court cases over tax-related issues.
This led to a warrant of her arrest being issued and the singer handing herself o er to the cops.
Not many details of her case have been released, however, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) South Gauteng spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane revealed to the Sunday World that Zahara was asked to hand in her passport.
The publication further reported that Zahara is facing one count of contravening tax laws and six for failing to submit her tax returns from 2013 to 2018.
The muso is facing prison for four years or having to pay a hefty fine.
