Video Of “Drunk” Zahara Worries Fans

Social media users have reacted negatively to a weird video of Zahara singing. This is because the Nyamezela singer appeared to be inebriated and tripping over her words.

Zahara had struggled with alcoholism in the past and had made it a point to quit. The singer is received fire after a viral video showing her performing with a group of men, with her appearing to be the only one who was intoxicated.

Zahara was subjected to cruel and derogatory remarks, with some implying that she has an alcohol problem and required assistance. Maphorisa also tweeted that Zahara urgently needed help, but he did it out of worry, saying that people should not judge her because she is going through a lot.

He, like many others, believed the person who shared the video was evil and was attempting to undermine Zahara’s album release.

“Please don’t mess with Zahara; the individual who released the video is a jerk. She is going through a lot and requires assistance. South Africa might be ineffective at times ” he said.

Zahara denies having an alcohol problem

On Mac G’s podcast and Chill series, Zahara finally addressed her claimed “alcoholism.” The singer, was hesitant to discuss the issue because she had been portrayed as an alcoholic for so long.

Mac G teased his on the show, which now airs every Wednesday on Channel O, and stated they have a lot in common, including a fondness for drinking. She admitted to Mac G that she just drank one bottle of wine and that it had knocked her out. She then realized she needed to quit drinking that night because she was extremely inebriated.

The talented vocalist admitted that she began consuming alcohol as a stress reliever, but she has no regrets about anything that has transpired in her life. “I don’t regret the kind of young woman I am now, regardless of who robbed me or how many mistakes I made. It has grown on me, and I now know which steps to take or not. It doesn’t mean I won’t have difficulties; I’m still going to have issued” she went on to say.

If you’ve been following Uncle Waffles’ career you know that the young Queen is all the way up. And now she has made a huge announcement that proves she is a gone girl.

The young DJ recently took to Twitter to announce what is set to be her biggest gig yet. She will be playing at Afronation in Portugal which is set to take place in the first week of July 2022.

But it’s not just that it’s a huge international gig, it’s who else is on the line up alongside uncle waffles. She is said to share a stage with Megan Thee Stallion, Chris Brown, Burna Boy and Wizkid. She will also be joined on the international stage by some other local talents, including DJ Maphorisa, Kabza de Small, Major League DJz and Focalistic.

The event is set to give a lot of international exposure to more budding local talents like Young Stunna and Kamo Mphela. Mr JazziQ, DBN Gogo and De Mthuda are also in the line-up.

As Uncle Waffles shared the news, fans immediately jumped in her comments to offer their congratulations. You would remember it has not been an easy journey to get to where she is now. She has unfortunately endured a lot of bullying, as she topped trends week after week in 2021 when she was dragged and told she has no talent and only got famous because of her pretty privilege.

She was also given an expiration date and told that 2021 would be the end of her career. But the first month of 2022 is almost done and she’s only going farther. I guess there are those who do Big things and those who sit and talk about them. We know which one uncle waffles is.

Another gone girl is comedian and TiK ToK star Elsa Majimbo. In a video shared widely on social media, the Kenyan-born talent had an interview with American media personality Steve Harvey, in which he offered to adopt her as his niece.

He said he would be giving her his phone number and she could call him whenever to talk about whatever. He said he was invested in her and wouldn’t want anything bad happening to her. For that reason, he will take care of her as his own niece, which as you would guess will mean many more doors will open for the young babe.

The lady shared the video on Tik Tok, with the name, Mamesh; she said she’s Mandla’s first wife.

“Hi Babes Wodumo, you call yourself MaSimelane, well I am MaMaphumulo, the real one. Please leave Makhadzi alone, I am Mampintsha’s real wife. Just because you guys are married, that has nothing to do with me. I am also married. I don’t know if you know this but he and I are married.”

“Secondly, stop going around and dissing Mampintsha’s mother, she is my mother-in-law. Just because they are hiding me you think I will remain quiet. I am tried of you, you think because people are scared of you, I will also be afraid of you. I want South Africa to organise a fight between us and on that day do not drink alcohol, eat pap because I will beat you up,” she added.

It is assumed that Mamesh is pulling a publicity stunt with this claims.

However, Mampintsha has been mute about all the drama surrounding him for months. He’s been producing songs and seeing to the growth of his business, Original Shandis.
