Award-winning singer Bulelwa ‘Zahara’ Mkutukana has thanked South Africans for donating money and saving the house she was about to lose because of her financial struggles.  

Mtutukana made headlines in May when City Press revealed that the singer was about to lose her Roodeport townhouse as a result of defaulting on her monthly installments of R17 665, 40.

ZAHARA: ‘ALL THE R50 NOTES HELPED’  

The Loliwe hitmaker Bulelwa ‘Zahara’ Mkutukana first requested donations from South Africans and the Kaizer Chiefs football club in an interview with Daily Sun.  

She’s now revealed in the interview that she’s paid off her house for the next three months.  

“This tore me apart at first, which is why I spoke about it. I felt like I could have knocked on so many doors but they were closed. But I knew that there would be someone out there who could listen and understand. All the R50 notes, R100, and R1000 I got helped me.”  

She also tells the People’s Paper that there’s a businessman that helped her with the rest as the amount donated wasn’t the exact amount she needed.  

The singer also reveals that the money from her fans helped her take care of her family as things have been difficult since her sister passed away.

‘I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE DONATIONS’  

She revealed in a separate interview with the paper that she’s also taking care of her sister’s children and her parents.  

“As I had mentioned in our last interview, things have been tough since my sister passed on. So, from the donations that came in, I would also take some and help my sister’s kids, my siblings, mom, and dad. This has helped and now God has been opening doors. I’m now working again.”  

She adds that her family was skeptical when she asked for donations as they didn’t think anyone would listen or assist.   

“My family thought people would not care and thought I would be laughed at. But I told them rather that than open my legs for money.”
