Just weeks after almost losing her home due to financial troubles, Loliwe hitmaker Zahara is facing another stumbling block after her health took a nosedive this past weekend.  

Taking to Twitter on Saturday 4 June, Zahara apologised to event organisers and fans as she had to cancel all scheduled gigs as per doctor’s orders.

Zahara: ‘My health has taken a toll on me’

“I’d like to apologise to my fans and promoters to share that I am unable to carry through my performances this weekend. My health has taken a toll on me and I have been advised to be on bed rest. I look forward to getting out there as soon as I am physically fit,” read her tweet.

On Monday, 6 June, the singer’s booking manager, Junior Mkutukama, told TheSouthAfrican that Zahara was on the road to recovery.

“She’s doing much better and we’re hoping that in a few days she will be back on her feet. It is nothing too serious, but the doctor placed her on bed rest until she recovers fully,” he said.

Youth Day Concert to go ahead as planned

Junior assured fans that, as it stands, Zahara’s highly anticipated Youth Day concert will go ahead as planned.

He said they are hoping that she will be well enough to fulfil her next scheduled performance with no speed bumps.

Zahara’s financial woes makes headlines

In the weeks before Zahara announced the Youth Day concert, she hogged headlines after it was reported that she stood the chance to lose her Roodepoort home.

The singer’s home was apparently set to go under the hammer after she defaulted on her monthly instalments of R17,665.

At the time, Zahara told TshisaLIVE she was given a six-day grace period to make payments on her R1.9 million home loan.
