Zahara’s family confirmed that they were in talks with the SABC about the late singer’s reality show.
Zahara, real name Bulelwa Mkutukana, passed away at a private hospital in Johannesburg on 11 December. She was laid to rest in her hometown of East London on 23 December.
According to ZiMoja, Zahara’s mother admitted that they, as a family, did not know much about the entertainment industry but where getting advice as they began talks with the SABC.
“God is good. We will heal. We don’t want our daughter’s story to go untold. She was our pillar of strength. We are still in talks with the SABC. We are from the rural area, we don’t know these things, but people will help guide us so we can go about it the right way,” the publication quoted her as saying.
The outlet also spoke to a family member who said the family approached the SABC and they had agreed to continue with the show.
The source further added that the family was looking to clear the air on a number of allegedly false reports.

The SABC, however, explained to IOL that they will actually be playing the repeat of Zahara’s first season.
“This is a repeat and not the second season” and “this was planned before her passing”.
