South African singer-songwriter, Lady Zamar, has shared a progress picture of her skin, after a fan shared visuals how they overcame acne. In a Twitter post today, 8 October 2020, a fan partook in the “Where It started – Where I am now” viral challenge and tagged Lady Zamar as someone who has also gone through the same issue.

She stated, “I went thru this acne phase so suddenly and so publicly. it was a mess. So glad you’ve made it thru this horrible phase. I wish healing to everyone going thru this now.” She followed up with a selfie which showed her skin completely free off acne, and glowing in natural sunlight. Earlier today, Lady Zamar also promoted self-love by tweeting, “You look back and realize how much you’ve survived… and you thank God for getting you through. You are enough. You’ve always been enough.”
Lady Zamar previously revealed her first acne breakout was at the age 9 - claims her skin issues have affected relationships, friendships, and even her engagement on social media. In a statement from over a year ago, the songbird stated, "The first thing that goes is your self-esteem. People expect me to be perfect, but the fact is I'm not. I'm going through the roughest period of my life with this acne," she said. She had also claimed to have sought treatment from professionals and shared a message of hope with her fans. She defiantly added; "I'm never going to hide who I am; no matter what people say. It's not the end of the world for me."
The singer has been taunted on social media for her skin and in 2019, Lady Zamar hit back at fellow singer Babes Wodumo who shamed the Idols SA guest judge for having acne. The viral video caused outrage in Mzansi and led to calls to boycott Babes. Although Lady Zamar revealed she was deeply hurt by the clip, she claimed she did not need an apology from the gqom singer. She told Drum magazine; “What she said might’ve hurt me, but it doesn’t define me, we get up and do better things, choose to be better people. "If more people cared about being good people, the world would be such a better place."
