The family of songstress Zahara, has addressed the concerns surrounding her health, putting an end to speculation on social media. The concerns arose after reports from Zimoja indicated that Zahara was in intensive care and potentially required a liver transplant.
In an official statement released on Monday through Zahara's social media platforms, her family and team confirmed that she had been hospitalized. They requested privacy and asked for prayers for her swift recovery.
Read the full statement below:
We wanted to take this opportunity as a family to express gratitude for the outpouring of love, support and compassion for our dearest Zahara since the recent media articles about the nature of her health. For your kindness and concern, and because we know you love Zahara, we wanted to give you an update on our daughter's health.
Zahara has been admitted to the hospital for a week following complaints about physical pains. The doctors are working diligently and we await further updates from them.
Unfortunately, even though our daughter's hospitalisation has been of strict confidentiality with our family and close friends, that hasn't stopped the spread of disingenuous information on the internet. We want to stress that any reliable information regarding Zahara's health will be communicated via her social media platform or by herself.
In the meantime, we are asking for privacy on this matter and your continued prayers for the speedy recovery of our beloved Zahara. We trust that she will be back on the road soon, doing what she loves and what we all love her for, healing people through her powerful gift and love of music.
