She said:

"It’s not going to happen now. We can’t get to the community hall and there have been so many challenges. Zahara fought for her house while she was still alive, throughout her career that’s what she managed to hold on to. Also, to us, that was like home, that’s why we wanted to keep it because it’s got so many memories for us with her in it. It’s part of her legacy, we do not really want to lose it."

The concert, which was supposed to take place in April 2024, was to help the family raise funds to secure Zahara's home, which they are on the verge of losing.

Bandezwa further mentioned that they would have to find other ways to raise funds and also said that they won't chow the money as they want to use it to keep the house:
