The South African singer-songwriter Zahara is facing a lot of financial issues in her life. She does not have money to maintain her high-style celebrity life. And owes a lot of money to people and companies.
Recently, she faced the heat of one of her creditors fashion designer Otsile Sefolo who had made a dress for her 4 years back. But Zahara has not yet paid him for it. Hence Otsile Sefolo shamed her on social media.
Zahara had put up a recent Facebook post. And in its comments section, Otsile wrote a lengthy post to let the world know that she has yet to pay him his dues. He wrote:
“The devil herself is onstage. This lady screwed me over twice. She failed to pay me the money she owed me from the dress I made for her in 2016 and now she wears my designs and fails to give us credit for our work…[she] has the audacity to bring back the dress dirty.”
Otsile had made the dress for Zahara in 2016 but neither hot recognition nor money for it. However, the post is now deleted.
