‘There’s No Way I Did Not Go Through Depression’ — Zahara On Fame

Singer Zahara spoke candidly on the effects of fame and how she will always be successful in spite of her doubters.

The singer pondered the success of her career and if she is still able to pursue music professionally as she did in her peak during her interview with Tbo Touch on Metro FM.

Zahara said that the criticism she received for her private experiences had an impact on her, but she remained confident that she could succeed despite the criticism.

“You thought you gave me a name, and you thought you gave me a gift. The person that gave me the gift, which is God, will see it through. It’s not about you, it’s not about me. He is going to let it live whether I like it or not,” she said.

“People go through depression whether I know it or don’t know it. There’s no way I did not go through depression. There’s no way that I did not feel what you guys were saying to me, the daggers that you were pointing at me and digging me, that I did feel no pain.”

Despite the fact that Zahara has received 48 prizes, including 17 South African Music prizes, Metro FM Awards, International Awards, and Glamour Woman of the Year, her private life has frequently made news.

When demanding to be due royalties from her TS Records in 2019, she faced a number of challenges, including nearly losing her house, tax problems, and an admission of alcoholism.

Zahara previously spoke up to TimesLIVE about going through a depressive episode.

“When it comes to music, I have never disappointed you, I’m still the best-selling artist ever in South Africa, I’m still breaking my own records when it comes to awards, when it comes to sales.”

The problem lay in why she drank in the first place.

“I used to drink for myself to be happy, but now I saw I was drinking to sleep because of my brother’s death and what the company was doing to me. I couldn’t talk to nobody because I was scared of everything,” she says.

“This is what we do as black communities: there’s no depression. I’m sure I did go through that depression phase but it’s just that you don’t understand and don’t know what it is. It’s not small. You can be winning awards and crying yourself to sleep. Sometimes the anxiety you feel, you can’t even eat, you can’t think, and you are always lashing out at people. This is what I was going through.”
