Zahara hospitalised following liver complication
With 2023 coming to an end, one of Mzansi’s powerhouses finds herself battling for her life in hospital. Singer Zahara, whose real name is Bulelwa Mkutukana, was reportedly rushed to hospital after she fell ill.

According to ZiMoja, the star was allegedly admitted in a medical ward before she was moved to ICU as her condition became worse. A source told the publication that Zahara is receiving treatment.


“The scarring on her liver is extensive, and there’s a possibility that she may require a liver transplant. They are also holding prayer vigils for her to get better in both Joburg and East London, where she comes from.”
The source also mentioned that the singer’s family is trying its best to pay for the extensive test, and Zahara doesn’t have comprehensive medical aid coverage. The singer’s fiance and family were reported by the source that they have put a ring fence around Zahara and that they said no one is allowed to speak to the media nor visit her at the hospital she is admitted to.

A news and gossip page, MDNews, also shared the sad news about Zahara being hospitalised on Twitter. The page wrote:

Fans and supporters of the star wished her speedy recovery though others wished that her being hospitalised doesn’t involve her severe alcohol intake. See some of the comments below:
