- Zahara is done with hiding the truth, she is not coping and needed to speak out about it
- The incredible musician feels that her talent, soul and life is being robbed from her each and every day
- Speaking out is scary, but Zahara urges other artists who are in the same position to say something before it is too late
Zahara is one of Mzansi’s most-loved and successful artists. With all her fans and great success, you would think that Zahara is living her best life, but she’s not.
Bulelwa Mkutukana, better known as Zahara, knows how to write and give life to songs that speak to the soul. She is a phenomenal performer and an incredible artist.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Zahara is tired of hiding the truth. The songstress is done with lying about herself and the music industry, and felt that it was time to speak out.
Zahara opened up and stated that the smile that we all see on her face is fake. According to Daily Sun, Zahara is drowning.
Living a fake life on social media leaves the public thinking that everything is great, but that is not the case, according to Zahara.
She highlighted the fact that a lot of artists turn to drugs and suicide to escape the pain and pressure, like HHP. Zahara did not want to get to that point, and that is why she has spoken out.
Zahara expressed that she has reached a breaking point. The angelic artist revealed that she is ‘battling' because of people in the industry who 'robbed’ her.
The musician did not state who had ‘robbed’ her, or of what she had been robbed of, but it has been stated that it has something to do with the record labels; her producers and managers.
Apparently the situation has been taken up legally with Zahara’s lawyers, but she still felt the need to speak out because many artists don’t.
“We have so many artists who are going through what I am going through but they are afraid of speaking about the issues they face in the music industry,” she said.
The Umthwalo Wami hit-maker is going through a lot and is seeking help from her mentors to get out of the dark space that she is currently in.
Zahara also reached out to other artists who are in the same position and urged them to speak out and to not let their talents be used and abused.
“They were born with talent and they should reap the rewards for that talent, and not let others use them for their own benefit,” said Zahara.
The entertainment industry is tough. Constantly living in the public eye with judgements being thrown at you left right and centre, cannot be a pleasurable life. We trust that Zahara will find her strength and come out on top.
