A new show by Lasizwe Dambuza introduced social media users to a beef they never knew existed: one between Zodwa and Zahara.

An unlikely beef has emerged between singer Zahara and the people’s entertainer Zodwa Wabantu.

This is after a small snippet of Lasizwe Dambuza’s new YouTube show Drink or Tell The Truth! 

The game is simple: Lasizwe asks the most salacious questions to the celeb and they have to answer honestly or take a shot.

In the video, celebs such as Mihlali Ndamase, Major League twins, Ntando Duma and Zodwa appear, and Zodwa can be heard saying: “Zahara I hate her…why, because she is a bitch.”

Watch below:

It is unclear the context of why Zodwa said this and Twitter users were just as taken aback. Despite people not having the full story, they were already siding with the Loliwe singer.

As a result, Zodwa’s episode is now highly anticipated ahead of its release.

Zahara has had a tough time in the spotlight since her breakout album nearly 10 years ago – from tax charges, fighting for money allegedly owed to her by DJ Sbu and substance abuse.

In June, she appeared in court after allegedly not submitting personal and company income tax returns, which resulted in her being on the hook for a R1500 fine or imprisonment

Zahara’s tax charges are related to her non-submission of personal and company income tax returns to the South African Revenue Service (Sars).

Touching on her drinking problem on Somizi Mhlongo’s cooking show, Dinner at Somizi’s, Zahara said alcohol wasn’t the issue. There was a deeper reason why she was drinking heavily: it was the pressures of fame.

Zahara recalled how between 2014 and 2015, she used to cry herself to sleep because of what was happening in her life at the time.

“I feared that I won’t get airplay on the radio, appear on TV or get any gig anymore. But I thought it’s not even about that, it’s about the greater picture which is to inspire and give hope.”
