Nothing really bothers me. I have been criticised, hurt and labelled all sorts of things but I continue to stand firm because I know my purpose – to heal people through my music. That makes me sleep at night.

Speaking about her love life, Zahara revealed that she hasn’t had much luck in finding a person who is compatible with her. Zahara also added that she had hoped that she would get married to her former boyfriend, Ian Sihle, a motivational speaker, but unfortunately things turned out for the worst.

‘Dating hasn’t been easy. I’m Zahara, for crying out loud.

He was a lovely guy, but that’s not enough.

I won’t explain too much but love alone was just not enough. To say, ‘I love you’ does not matter, I need actions – show me.

A guy doesn’t have to show me with money. I never needed anything from anyone. I don’t need a holiday, just show me you love me.

I realised I was dating a fan,’ concluded Zahara.
