Musician Zahara has taken to her Twitter account to express her optimism despite her financial difficulties.

After a couple of months filled with predicaments, it's heartwarming to see the singer celebrating her bravery. She is now choosing to cherish life.

On Wednesday, Zahara shared a picture of herself accompanied with an empowering caption. "When all is said and done, but you stand,” she wrote. Her fans took to the comments section to shower her with messages of support.

Zahara recently made headlines after it was reported that she was facing financial woes. The singer was reportedly at loggerheads with Nedbank, which had threatened to sell her Roodeport home due to non-payment of her monthly mortgage.

Previously, Zahara was reported to be in arrears of up to R17 665.40, which is equivalent to 6 months of missed payments. The star reportedly took out a R1.9 million loan to buy her Roodeport home

Zahara felt the heat and wrath of black Twitter who slammed her for allegedly blaming DJ Sbu for her downfall. Nota weighed in his two cents on her financial woes and slammed those who wanted to help her.

This comes after a Twitter user named BI Phakathi, started a fundraising campaign to help Zahara save her home. Nota slammed the Twitter user and alleged: "You want us to buy her drugs? We learnt our lesson with Zola. She must go to rehab & leave DJ Sbu alone!,” he claimed.
The singer pleaded with Kaizer Chiefs to help her save her home. According to Daily Sun, Zahara said she wanted to host a three-hour concert at a stadium to raise money for her house. Her only issues were a stadium, sound equipment and ambulances, and she wanted assistance from the football club.

“I want to approach Kaizer Chiefs to help me. I promise to do great. I just want to have a concert, not just for me but my fans and family too,” she told the publication.

“I want to plead with Chiefs and Kaizer Motaung when they have their next match. I don’t want to do much. I just want to sing my heart out. I can do a three-hour show. All I’m asking for is the sound equipment, stadium and ambulances as well as other things," she added.

Zahara's financial problems first caught the attention of many people when she accused DJ Sbu and TK Nciza of allegedly exploiting her. She blasted the duo over her alleged unpaid royalties. DJ Sbu denied the allegations and claimed Zahara is actually the one who owes them money.

"We made history together, by the way I miss you. But what I don't like is when she says I owe her money because you know that is a lie and if you go down to the books at Universal Music, she actually owes us money,” he said.

He went on to reveal that Zahara was admitted in hospital for a liver problem due to heavy drinking. “She remembers those two Christmases when nobody was by her side, which we had by the second time. Actually, she was going through the most, nobody was there for her. She was in hospital, she was going through a liver problem, and the doctors there were saying she was drinking alcohol,” he said.

She encouraged her fans to actively pursue answers from the recording companies withholding her royalties, if they claim they care about her.

"If you guys say you love me, you need to go to these companies, SAMRO, Share Public and our record labels Universal TS Records, and find DJ Sbu and TK Nciza. If you really care about me...I can't be fighting alone, I do not have money to pay for lawyers. My money is sitting there, that same money I can even build a clinic at my village.

"But you guys are only enticed by what you see on TV. I wrote Loliwe alone. DJ Sbu does not know anything about Lolilwe. I wrote Loliwe and performed it on the streets with people giving me coins. Today they all know Loliwe?" she asked.
