South African singer and songwriter Zahara continues to be the talk of the town, after an old video of her ranting about her unpaid royalties and lashing out at TK Nciza and DJ Sbu for allegedly exploiting her, has resurfaced on social media.
DJ Sbu and TK Nciza, who helped Zahara rise to fame, are accused of allegedly contributing to towards her downfall. Zahara’s life was turned upside down after she left TS Records, a recording label owned by DJ Sbu and TK Nciza, with claims that they exploited her.
Recent news reports have highlighted Zahara’s financial troubles and some of her fans are worried about her. The singer is reportedly on the verge of losing her townhouse due to defaulting on her monthly installments. On the other end, her dispute with DJ Sbu and TK Nciza shows no sign of abating, as she continues to demand what is due to her.
In an interview with MacG last year, Zahara said her inability to litigate the matter resulted from the high legal fees. In spite of this, she continues to lash out at the music producers on social media over allegedly owing her millions of rands that she worked hard for.
A Tweep started a fundraising campaign aimed at assisting Zahara to pay her house, but others dragging Zahara. They want the Loliwe hitmaker to stop blaming the DJ Sbu and Tk Nciza for her downfall. Some alleged that she misused her money and said that since she is a legend, she has a great chance of rebounding.
They believe it’s high time that she releases new music and starts making more money again.
AneleBooi10 tweeted: “The Zahara and Dj Sbu saga is really irritating now… Zahara needs to stop wanting us to feel sorry for her…she must just make music and we’ll buy.”
NthabeyK_Styles tweeted: “She actually doesn’t even need a cent to start what DJ Sbu found her doing. She’s forgetting that she is a big brand in her musical genre. Aish mothuseng hleng, but psychologically. Didn’t she have at least 1or2 friends within the industry who can assist with just words of wisdom?”
DumolwakheM tweeted: “Mna I feel nothing for her honestly. Uxakwe yintoni engaqhubeki making good music outside of DJ Sbu? Surely Zahara can continue making good money from new music if she’s as good as she claims, while still fighting for what is owed to her by TS Records.”
Favoured1221 wrote: “The DJ Sbu story was years ago. She continued to make music after that, and even did overseas concerts ko Toronto nabo UK. She used the money on booze and parties. Now she’s blackmailing people. We also have our own problems.”

An old video of Zahara ranting about her unpaid royalties has left social media users with mixed reactions. Zahara is heard telling her fans to confront the parties who exploited her if they claim to love her.
She said she cannot be fighting her battles alone: “If you really love me, you should all go picket out these stations, SAMRO and Universal where TK Nciza you will also find DJ Sbu. Me fighting alone, I don’t have money to pay for the lawyers, my money is sitting there. With all my money that is sitting there I can even build a clinic at out village/ You guys, you’re only interested about what you see on TV.” says Zahara
According to the Loliwe hitmaker, DJ Sbu and TK Nciza did not write Loliwe and the music producers found her singing it in the streets. They were only involved in producing and releasing the song.
“I wrote Loliwe all by myself. DJ Sbu doesn’t know Lolile, TK Nciza doesn’t know Lolile, even Nhlanhla Nciza doesn;t know Loliwe. They found me on the street playing Lolile and gave me money” says Zahara.
Fans are now suggesting that everyone come together to donate R350 000 so that she doesn’t lose her home and can get back on her feet.
