After feeling that she's in a black hole, Zahara, one of Mzansi's most celebrated young musicians, turned to alcohol to try and find happiness.
However, she realised she had a problem and had to face it head-on. According to a report by TimesLIVE, the singer defeated her inner demons and is now five months sober.
Big ups to her for staying strong and showing us how it's done.
However, the way Mzansi reacted may be reflective of the drinking problem that South Africa has. According to a previous report, SA is the sixth heaviest drinking country in the world.

We're glad Zahara was able to deal with her problems in a positive and productive way.
