Loliwe hitmaker Zahara has been lambasted and called names for taking a picture in a revealing a dress and sharing it online.
Bulelwa ‘Zahara’ Mkutukana has become a trending topic on Twitter after treating her followers to a glimpse of her revamped body. She posted a picture of herself wearing a navy blue body suit with a front zip skirt that was left open to expose her underwear.
Zahara, posted the picture and wrote that she was getting ready for a photo shoot. She may have been ready for the shoot, but definitely not ready for the reactions she received from fans about the picture.
Consequently, the award-winning songstress was criticised for both the present and past issues. While some criticised her for being a “weave girl” instead of rocking her natural hair like she used to, some thought the snap was inappropriate and asked if she was doing it to get attention. Some followers even declared that they have lost the respect they had for her because of the picture she shared.
Notwithstanding, Zahara’s army took up arms and came to the rescue. They insisted that she’s free to wear whatever she wants irrespective of her marital status. Furthermore, they slammed those who were body shamming her, but would easily praise foreign celebs for doing the exact same thing.
“Wow!!! It’s so sad that girls are the most body shaming her… And u expect guys to motivate & love you while u show no respect to other women! You our here demeaning each other and demand respect from men!! We all have flaws! You can’t body shame people as if you perfect! If she chose to wear that ☝ it means she us comfortable at her own skin,who are you to judge her…Not everyone is size 0/28.. Did we choose our body parts when God created us.”
“If zahara feels good and comfy in what she’s wearing let her be. If u don’t like it…keep your opinions to yourselves,” wrote some of her fans.

Even if a woman is engaged/married/single, it's her body to do what ever TF she wants with it! Stop dictating to women. Leave Zahara alone!
