It seems award-winning singer Zahara could face jail time after what happened. The singer is said to be in trouble with the law again according to recent reports. In my opinion, this singer hasn’t had much rest since leaving DJ Sbu’s record label TS Records and it seems like her management is doing a terrible job in keeping her out of trouble.
Sometimes you might even think that leaving the record label was a mistake for the young talented artist. Because it is well known that when artist leave their initial record label on a bad note, a lot of lawsuits awaits them and their former record label might try to damage their image in any way possible. But this is an issue of tax fraud.
According to media publication Fakaza, Zahara is again in trouble with the law again and she might faces jail time on tax fraud charges. It is alleged that the NPA confirmed in June this year that Zahara, personally and as a representative of Zahara Trading (Pty) LTD, was accused of failing to file an income tax return with SARS (South Africa Revenue Service).
If you have a business in South Africa you have to file your income tax every year, otherwise you could face some kind of prison sentence, it is compulsory and a federal law, but it seems like our award winning singer Zahara has gotten herself into a tax fraud scandal.
Singer Loliwe’s vacation order was reportedly issued by the Johannesburg Commercial Crime Tribunal at Palm Ridge Magistrates Court on Friday after she failed to appear for failing to submit her ID.
Prosecutor spokesman Findile Mondwane confirmed the news with the newspaper, adding that the matter had been postponed to Wednesday 27 October.
In my opinion, this has been a very sad story for the singer, from performing well and winning awards to possibly going to jail. May she find help and continue to bless us with her beautiful voice and melodies.
