AWARD-WINNING songstress Zahara is allegedly having an affair with a married man. The ever-grinding rumour mill has it the star has been very cosy with fellow artist, Ali Boy (real name Alfred Idris), with whom she recorded a song five months ago.
According to insiders, Zahara (real name Bulelwa Mkutukana) and Ali have taken their relationship beyond just recording music together. The affair is said to have been going on for months and they’ve managed to keep it away from prying eyes.
Asserted an informant: “They started dating five months ago while working on the track, Imali, in which Ali was featured with his wife Sinderella.”
Sinderella is said to be none the wiser about her husband’s shenanigans with the Loliwe hitmaker, who once dated Umhlobo Wenene’s Masigoduke afternoon drive show co-host, Amaza Ntshanga.
“The wife still doesn’t know her husband and Zahara have been secretly seeing each other. They’ve been cosy and taking pictures together. At some point, I walked in on them kissing. Sinderella thinks they are just colleagues. She doesn’t suspect anything at all. But she’ll be shocked when she finds out her husband has been busy with another woman,” the mole said.
The pair apparently started flirting when Ali frequented Zahara’s house under the pretences of going there for music.
Said a third insider: “He visited her house all the time, and the excuse he gave was they were busy with music. This was believable, considering they’re both artists. This is the reason the wife didn’t have a problem. There was no reason for her to believe they were up to no good.”
When called for comment, Sinderella said: “I know they’re close, but I don’t know about an affair and therefore I can’t confirm that.”
Meanwhile, Ali said: “Who told you? I don’t know what to say.”
Zahara could not be reached for comment.
Sunday Sun understands she is on tour in Tanzania. Her manager Oyama Dyosibo refused to comment, saying he no longer worked with the singer.
