Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic, the artist has been going through some financial struggles that almost resulted in her losing her house when she failed to pay off her outstanding amounts and the bank threatened to auction the house to the highest bidder. But the emotional artist then opened up and begged for financial help from the public and even opened up about record labels that had not paid her money. Now that her home is saved, she has gone out to perform again and has been booked so that she can get back on her feet.
But South Africans were left unimpressed by the artist’s live vocals when she performed at an event on the 7th of October 2022, and she was recorded whole performing her heart out on stage, and people accused her of being drunk because of bad she sounded. Zahara did not allow social media to tarnish her name and clapped back by saying that people should not edit videos and posted her own version of the love performance,but to many it still sounded just as bad. Then another video was shared in the comments of her bad performance by one of the social media users,asking her if that one was edited too.
