Zahara has been billed to perform at a special Nelson Mandela centenary celebration concert in London in August.
And she plans to use the platform to educate people about Madiba and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s legacy.
The Loliwe hitmaker told TshisaLIVE that she wants to do SA proud.
“I am very excited to be performing at the concert. As far as I know‚ I am the only South African woman to perform at the concert. The final programme isn’t finalised yet‚ but I have been asked to give speeches before (the concert) about Tata’s legacy.”
Zahara‚ who had a special bond with Madiba‚ said she would use the platform to speak about the memories she shared with him.
In the wake of Ma Winnie’s death‚ the singer said she will also speak about her legacy.
“I will honour them both and won’t be scared of talking about her. I know there are people who disrespected and ignored her while she was alive. The dirt and things they were saying about her was not nice and now they are trying to make money off of the mourning. I am not one of them. I had a special relationship with both her and Tata and I will share that with the world.”
Zahara is also set to perform at the Africa All-star concert in Toronto in August.
