Zahara has died
South African singer Zahara, real name Bulelwa Mkutukana passed away on Monday.
The 35-year-old musician died at a private Johannesburg Hospital with her fiance Mpho Xaba by her bedside.
The star was admitted to the hospital weeks ago due to liver complications.
Friends and families sent in prayers and support, but she passed away on Monday night.
“The family will release a statement soon. She was with Mpho when she passed away,” a source tells Sunday World.
Mkutukana family spokesperson and Zahara’s cousin Oyama Dyosiba said he was struggling to locate Xaba on Monday night.
“I am getting calls from everywhere. I am in Cape Town and doing my best to get hold of Mpho. I can’t get hold of him,” he added.
