Celeb Twitter Round-Up: Get Well Soon, Zahara!

It’s been over a week since the family of Zahara confirmed that she was in hospital, and Mzansi Twitter has been united in both sympathy and apathy.

Last Monday, 27 November, Zahara’s family confirmed that the “Loliwe” songstress (real name Bulelwa Mkutukana) had been hospitalised amid reports and rumours that she was suffering from a liver-related issue. 

“Unfortunately, even though our daughter’s hospitalisation has been of strict confidentiality within our family and close friends, that hasn’t stopped the spread of disingenuous information on the Internet,” her family said per an online statement.

“We want to stress that any reliable information regarding Zahara’s health will be communicated via her official social media platforms or by herself.”

Over on Twitter/X, tweeps sent in their well-wishes, hoping that she’ll recover and make a successful comeback to the stage:

Other tweeps, however, were more scathing as they cited the 35-year-old’s past history with alcohol abuse:

Negativity aside, we’ve lost many beloved local icons in the last few years to various causes, and we simply can’t afford to lose another, especially someone like Zahara who has still got a lot to offer.

We can only but hope that her health will improve and she can come back bigger, better and stronger than ever!
