Zahara reflects on being labelled 'ugly' as a child

Singing sensation Zahara has taken a trip down memory lane to reflect on the painful memories she has of being called ugly as a child.

The singer who has over the past two years been on mission to get fit‚ and has totally transformed her image‚ told Drum magazine that she felt like an “outcast” as a child.

Zahara: I felt like the only one who was poor and without shoesShe may be one of the brightest talents in Mzansi but there was a time when Zahara was discouraged and so poor she could not even afford shoes. 

“I was made fun of for my crooked teeth and they told me my voice was too big‚ ‘bathi ndingu Nongayindoda (I was too masculine)‚” she said.

Zahara added that some of the things that was said to her was hard to forget. She said that she felt like an outcast and lacked confidence.

Zahara horribly body-shamed but her army fought backTwitter formed two opposing camps on Thursday night after Zahara posted a semi-nude picture of herself showing off her weight loss progress. 

The good thing is that Zahara’s hard work over the past two years is finally paying off.

“I take care of myself now and the way I look is important to me. I work out more‚ I eat well and I take care of my image‚” she added.

And here’s proof that Zahara is totally slaying...
