Zahara Speaks On Her Alcohol Addiction

First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you.” Those were the words of the American novelist and essayist F. Scott Fitzgerald describing alcohol’s inexorable hold on those who seek salvation in the bottle.

This morbid reality has played out in the life of Mzansi songstress Zahara. She has learned from her experience, though, according to her.

Back when she was much younger in the industry, around 2014 and 2015, according to her, she used to cry herself to sleep because she feared a lot of things. She feared that she won’t get airplay on radio anymore, won’t appear on TV or get any gigs.

It appeared a hopeless curve in the course of her career. And alcohol appeared as the route to salvation. Looking back, it wasn’t right route after all.

According to the songstress she has now reformed, learned from the past. She is apparently on the way to reinventing herself. We can’t wait to see the new Zahara and the song she will drop following her deliverance from alcohol.
