Zahara finally decided to share the reasons that led to her break up with Amaza Ntshanga, even though she was vague about it but what she said was enough to let everyone know that the relationship between the two was definitely far from being rosy and sweet. The Loliwe hitmaker said that she feels she confused love with admiration as she was a big fan of the Radio Personality prior their romantic venture.
“He’s a good man and a nice guy. I learnt a lot from him‚ from our love and everything. I think maybe the fact that I was fond of him as radio personality contributed.(To me thinking I was in love with him) Growing up I loved him and I think that I was more of a fan. Maybe he also loved Zahara (the persona)‚” she said.
The Phendula hitmaker added to her statement that she and Amaza had no problem going months without seeing each other and that’s when she realised she wasn’t in love with him but stayed. “we didn’t mind seeing each other after two months and stuff. But I admire him because he never did anything (wrong). So we eventually realised that we were not in love. It was not working.”
She spoke of how she had to come clean after her engagement ended for the sake of her fans. She said most of her fans are old grannies or younger girls and she didn’t want them to think that she was cheating on Amaza when they had broken up. Zahara is now in a relationship with a handsome Ian Sihle who not so long ago expressed how much he loved her and is planning on making her his wife real soon.
“Zahara is an incredible woman. She inspires me and I have learnt a lot from her. She has helped me deal with so much in my life and I really appreciate all the support I get from her.I feel at peace with her. I see my future with her. I told her family that the next time they see me I will bring cows (to pay lobola) and I am serious about that. We are working towards that and it will be soon‚” said Ian.
