FRUSTRATED ZAHARA :I’M LEAVING | Zahara says she is relocating to the USA temporarily because South Africa and Africa no longer appreciate her.
“I have taken my music across Africa and I have won many awards. I have done everything I could here and now people have started to tear me apart. They focus on my private life instead of my music and they don’t give me the same respect.”
“I am now done with Africa and trying to impress everyone. It is time for Africa and South Africa to let me go and let me take my music to places where it can be appreciated. I love this country and what it has done for me but my talent needs to be heard‚” Zahara told the Times.
The musician‚ who shot to fame with her 2011 double-platinum selling debut album Loliwe‚ said she turned down a chance to relocate in 2013 because being proudly African was close to her heart.
“They wanted to change my image but I told my management to take me home. I didn’t want to change who I was. I am African and I didn’t want to turn my back on that. I still won’t change who I am but I have done everything I could here‚” she said.
