Zahara buys wheelchair for a woman with a disability
The songstress shares her talent with the world and gives hope to the hopeless
SINGER-songwriter Zahara, real name Bulelwa Mkutukana, is still flourishing even after reports that claimed that she is down and out. There has always been some sort of controversy around the star’s finances. Not so long ago, the singer was said to be behind with her monthly instalments of her house but the star’s social media accounts prove that she is doing just fine.
Zahara's Instagram shows that the star has enough to share with those in need. She recently bought a wheelchair for an elderly woman who has been bed-ridden since 2013.
Even though she has recently been quiet, the star’s music career is also not over. Zahara is set to represent the country at the Nelson Mandela Concert in the United Kingdom later this year.
The award-winning artist shares the not-socelebrated side of herself with her fans on social media. Zahara doesn’t only share pictures of herself posing with her big car or in the house that’s been making the news, she also shares beautiful real moments of giving back to the less fortunate.
Zahara says she was listening to the radio when she heard the emotional story of Miriam Mabetoa. The star was touched to hear that the woman had spent over five years stuck in her bed.
The Loliwe hitmaker took it upon herself to find the woman and give her a brand-new wheelchair. “She got paralysed in 2013 and she hasn’t been able to get out of her bed since then. Today I visited her and bought her a new wheelchair,’’ she shared on Instagram.
On the video that Zahara posted, Miriam looked overwhelmed with emotions and couldn’t even talk. All she did was to hug the star, sigh in disbelief and look at the wheelchair. It was a priceless moment.
HER STAR KEEPS SHINING
Zahara is still very relevant. She performs in and out of the country. Her recent album, Mgodi, has been nominated for the upcoming South African Music Awards in the Best Afro Pop Album category, alongside Mafikizolo and the late Robbie Malinga. The nominated album was released late last year and it did so well that it reached the gold status within six hours of its release.
The muso will be amongst the privileged artists to perform at the Nelson Mandela Concert in the US on 18 July. It seems that international fans can't get enough of Zahara's music.
The Eastern Cape-born star will also be performing at the Africa All Star Music Festival in Canada in August. “I’m super excited to be the only African female artist headlining the Africa All Star Music Festival in Toronto,’’ says Zahara about her opportunity to perform on an international stage.
Zahara is a star with a big heart. She recently donated a brand-new wheelchair to a bed-ridden woman, Miriam Mabetoa, after hearing her touching story on radio
