- Zahara has caused a bit of controversy on Twitter with her rendition of the national anthem
- Social media users attacked her and others defended her
- Mzansi is divided by her attempt at the anthem
Zahara has earned herself some grief for the video that she posted online of herself trying to sing the national anthem.
She sings the first part flawlessly, but as she reaches the Afrikaans part then she starts laughing and making up sounds as she battles to remember the lyrics.
When she gets to the English part of the song, she fares better but still butchers the lyrics. South Africans were divided on her take on the anthem with some calling her disrespectful.
Here is her video:
Mzansi reacted to her version of the anthem, some people defended her saying that the pressure of being in lockdown was getting to her.
@teeba_tezzy: I'm sorry but black people complain so much about white people not respecting them. Black people always cry for a equal nation. You'll never hear a white person sing any part of the anthem wrong or laugh about it. I find such very disrespectful to what people fought for.
@TshepangBinas: We Love Zahara
@Tendai92213466: If a white person had sung the Zulu part like this I can only imagine if we all would still be laughing?
@SxoshN: Sister you need to ask the Lord for better friends This is not cool ...How can you not know your own Anthem
@dakabza: Alcohol and Phone don't get along please someone take that phone
@Jack75824623: She was just fooling around guys cnt u c tht shes bored ...
