Late Zahara’s reality show titled Zahara – As I Rise will continue to air despite her passing. A family member tells ZiMoja that the singer was still in talks with the SABC and that everything was going well until she fell ill.
“She wanted to shoot the new season and show the lobola celebration and everything. But she became ill. She collapsed on the day of the lobola and things took a turn. But the SABC has approached the family and they have agreed to continue with the show.”
“It has not been easy. There has been a lot of speculation and conflicts which will be cleared,” he says.
“The family doesn’t know much about show business. but they are getting guidance from people like Vusi Nova who was one of her best friends.”
The family member says they hope that Zahara’s fiancé Mpho Xaba will get a chance to tell his side of the story. “He has been painted out to be a bad guy. If the family could allow him to be part of the show because he is an integral part of her last days, it would be fair to give him a chance to speak about what they had.”
