Due to the global shutdown, the Loliwe star revealed that she lost out on over 18 shows. Zahara said she has been hit hard, either cancelling or postponing shows. Her shows were supposed to be held in US, UK, Europe and Africa. The artist shared that she was supposed to visit Germany and after that the Ivory Coast in Africa.
Zahara said that the time she is spending at home now has given her quality time with family members that she resides with and keeping in touch with other loved ones. Zahara said that during the lockdown she has been forced to rest and to get in touch with people she loves.
She says that things could be worse and she will most definitely abide by the president’s instructions and is urging fans to do the same.
