City Press once reported a few months ago that the public broadcaster had given the singer an ultimatum. Reports had it that the channel threatened to pull the plug on her reality show if didn’tsn’t stop acting like a diva. It is also reported that the Loliwe hitmaker failed to pitch for shoots several times. Zahara and the production team were not seeing eye to eye.
“They had to call a meeting with the SABC on Wednesday after she missed a shoot and asked the producers to come to her at a different location. She said she was visiting some guy in Katlehong, and the film crew should follow her there if they wanted to film that day,” said the source.
According to another source, Zahara’s diva tendencies are getting worse.
“She missed a flight back to Johannesburg because she’d quarrelled with a member of her management team at the East London airport after we’d gone to her home to film her with her family. She did [behave herself] for the time being. She’s been filming properly and is expected to wrap everything up this week. The show depends on her cleaning her act up, and it’s sad that she seems to understand her own brand and acts out of character. It isn’t good [for her image],” the source added.
