Zahara revealed that she had a lot of trouble with TS Records and getting paid, but asked her family to not talk about it. The songstress admitted that she did so because she was scared of being an outcast if it came to light that she had to fight for her money.
Award-winning singer, Zahara, recently opened up about how she had suffered 'financial abuse' from TS Records.
She claimed that her former label owes her millions of Rands and accused the label's executives, TZ Nciza and Sbu Leope, for underpaying her for her performances, the sale of her records and her royalties for when her songs were played.
Now Zahara explained why no one in her family did anything about the trouble she was having - she asked them to keep quiet, as reported on by TimesLIVE.
Zahara was talking on Metro FM when she discussed the matter.
"If you remember when I came into the industry, my sister and my mother were trying to fight for my money... but I told them to keep quiet because I was scared."
Zahara is now following the legal route and wants others to learn from the situation she has found herself in.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the singer got emotional as she opened up about her experience.
"I didn't know that I was damaging myself... because why would I go and work and then have to beg for my money... which was sometimes a mere R10,000. Why would I go work and have to plead for that R10,000 that I need to ask for months on end? I'm not dumb, my family also knew about all this."
However, TK told The Sowetan that the claims are not true and that he hasn't worked with Zahara for three years.
Zahara has been through a lot. She also admitted to using alcohol as a way to find happiness and that it became a problem.
Fortunately our girl is strong, and she's been five months sober now.
