Zahara's manager and business partner, Sanele Dlamini, has spilled the beans on the singer's recent shenanigans reported on in the media.
Singing sensation Zahara has been in the media's spotlight for all the wrong reasons recently. First she opened up about her drowning financial issues, then her problem with excessive alcohol, and later pointed fingers at her former record label, claiming they underpaid her and owe her millions.
But Zahara's manager and business partner, Sanele Dlamini, has had enough. He spoke to the media about how Zahara is inflicting pain onto herself through self-pity and self-destructive tactics.
According to ZAlebs, Dlamini spoke to Sunday World, revealling that Zahara is seeking public sympathy. He added that the star failed to manage her finances, which led her to her excessive drinking and seeking out bad company. The excessive drinking has even damaged her liver.
He told the publication that Zahara spent the entire December of last year in hospital because her liver had collapsed due to her heavy drinking.
Dlamini also claimed that Zahara had become unprofessional in the sense that she would either rock up at performances drunk or miss them - as well as important interviews and meetings - completely.
Numerous attempts to help Zahara proved futile, including rehabs.
Dlamini said he grew tired of covering up for Zahara to music promoters especially when she failed to pitch up for performances.
"Her own family is scared of her because she is the breadwinner and they can't even tell her to stop drinking," added Dlamini.
Not to take her side, but everyone goes through some sort of problems in her life. And we hope that she can triumph through this one the way she has done so in her past.
Two days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Zahara's former record label, TS Records, hit back at the star for claiming that the company owes her money for royalties, and has now sought legal action preventing her from making "false and defamatory statements against the company to both the media and social media".
