[LISTEN] 'I am here to inspire not to be praised' #702Unplugged

Singer-songwriter Zahara has received many accolades over the years for her unique and powerful voice but this has often been overshadowed by negative media reports.

The singer sat down with Azania Mosaka to talk about how she has managed to rise above the negativity as well as her album 'Mgodi'.

They don't want to talk about facts. I like people who talk about facts. I am not giving up on music, I started with my cows back at home, I know the people that listen to me, the people at the village that need hope.

Zahara, Singer-songwriter

My mom told me the people that are writing about you, you are not there for them. She said are you here to be praised or here to inspire? I am here to inspire not to be praised.

Zahara, Singer-songwriter
