South African singer-songwriter Bulelwa Mkutukana, better known as Zahara, is set to debut her reality show Zahara – As I Rise this month.


The show will look at the challenges faced by the Phendula and Stay singer, who was a guest judge on Idols South Africa season 17 in 2021.

Viewers will be able to follow her on a journey of restoration and healing and glimpse her personal life as she works to revive her music career.

“Underneath the pouting persona with a glass of alcohol every day and the stress of losing everything she owns, there is a bruised woman with no make-up, fighting to do corrections of her life – a sister and a woman searching for joy that she has not felt for years. Zahara has always been unapologetic about who she is, and she will let the viewers in on her life on many levels,” said the SABC.

The singer said: “My journey has not been easy. I have mourned my brother’s death and suffered the betrayal, pressure and frustrations that have taken a toll on me.”

As I Rise will be broadcast on SABC1 on February 4 at 19.30.
