According to Drum Magazine Zahara says she came back on the 21st of April from her Easter Holidays to find that her awards were missing from her customised stand. Zahara says there was no break-in, that the intruder took only her awards and that everything else was still intact in her house.

According to Zaharas’ Gardner who has been working for her for more than 10 years, he says when he came in he saw the door slightly opened and just closed it without going in to inspect the house.
Zahara says there has never been a break-in in her house for ten years and that the estate is very safe. She says she doesn’t suspect anyone at this point.

Zahara had a falling out with her neighbour in 2020. The neighbour reported Zahara for breaking the level 3 lockdown regulations in 2020. She says the neighbour installed invasive cameras in his home that faced her house and that she reported that matter and the cameras were then placed correctly.

“I’m not saying it’s him, but I’m saying there was no break-in at the complex. He has never liked me, and he has never been happy with my presence on the estate.” The songstress allegedly said to the publication.

Zahara has opened a case with the Honeydew police station and the matter is currently under investigation.
